I think that I have a boyfriend …

Things have been going from strength to strength with my new man.  He is so kind and considerate, (he has even started working on my deck?) so why am I struggling. 

I am finding it very hard as I have never had someone accept me unconditionally and honestly.  Yesterday was a bad MS day and he called down to give me a hug and listen.  It is such a long time since I had a man do that or even trusted a man enough to tell him that I needed some emotional support.  It makes me happy but at the same time I feel so vulnerable and uncomfortable, I am in new territory.  Talking to some of my friends, they are questioning, do I love myself enough, do I not realise that everything Mr GAA is doing for me is what I deserve, I am worthy of love.  I really have lots more work to do on myself, I thought that I had everything dealt with but new stuff is just appearing. 

Normally I pick the wrong man and it is all about him.  With time he just disappears and I end up broken-hearted and hurt as I have given too much away to quickly. I thought that I had learnt from my mistakes but maybe freezing my heart wasn’t the right decision.

Mr GAA and I are taking this slow, I suppose that is the best way, one day at a time?
Anyone got any advice?

  1. Hi Nicola, just try to go with the flow and enjoy the moment. Be honest with yourself and with him and definitely the slow route is the best one right now. It will all work out fine, just go at your pace and enjoy being number one. You deserve this.

  2. Hi Nic,
    I think you should relax and enjoy your new found relationship. It’s great when you meet someone but hard too because you have all the learning to do about the other person. He’s learning too and probably seeing how he can deal with things himself ( been there myself, MS and all) . Nine out of ten cats prefer whiskas, but maybe the tenth prefers something better and your that…
