pip Posted March 4, 2007 Share Posted March 4, 2007 Hi everyone I've been seeing this really nice guy for about 2 months now and things are going really well. The only thing is that I've been burned in the past when I was dumped by someone I was in love with (it messed me up badly & took me ages to get over it) and I've been totally paranoid about being dumped ever since. How can I stop this from getting to me? Just when I feel like I'm falling in love with this new guy, I keep getting scared & freaking out at the thought of getting dumped again (even though the relationship is new and there's nothing at all wrong with us). I find I'm always saying really defensive things to myself, like "Don't get too close to him" or "watch out for the first sign of trouble and quickly end it in order to 'get in first' and dump him before he can dump me". I know that's a bit messed up & paranoid, but I can't help it. Has anyone ever experienced this before? I'm 25 now and I want to be able to have successful relationships and eventually settle down with someone. I'm scared I'll never let myself get close to someone Quote Link to comment
