But did he say that he's changed his mind and now wants a LTR like you do...? Or have YOU changed your mind and decided you are ok with a FWB relationship with him only...?We video chatted, can't see each other since he has the virus. We told each other that when we first met that we each dated other people. I told him at some point I could not see others and he said he did the same. He said that I decided where to continue commit my time and that if his company was not worth my time he would no longer be a priority to me. He assured me, his word, that he feels the very same. I told him I spilled alot on him and he said he was fine. He did ask me not to call him a playboy as that suggests that he is manipulative and he is not trying to manipulate anyone. He had me laughing by the end of the conversation. He sent me a text with a tiger picture as he knows I refer to him as my tiger. I then went out to dinner by myself to celebrate my birthday. Still feeling really strange about it all.
I think you are feeling strange about it because he was being vague and you were grasping for reassurance in anything he said. If you were honest with yourself about what he said he wants, you would have to accept that you do not want the same things, and I think you are resisting that because of your feelings for him. But that's a MISTAKE. And you are going to end up hurting yourself more down the line when he doesn't change his views of relationships for you.
You are going to have to trump your strong feelings for him with common sense and reality -- and if anyone has a way to do that, I'd love to hear it!! Lol!
