    We're Complex

    I guess we're both kind of complex human beings. I have BPD and can't deal with being close to people. It took me a full five months until I could really ever touch my girlfriend in a sexual way. It took me eternities until I first kissed her. It took me months until I was able...

    We were together for 9 months,

    but my family was open about hating him. He couldn't handle it anymore and ended it. We got in this huge fight and stopped being friends. Then we both started seeing other people. The issue with that was we both weren't over each other. He's my first love and he holds my heart...

    Long-distance, with my boss,

    and I don't even know if we can define it as a relationship! It doesn't get more complicated than that. But I really really like him, and he really really likes me. He's the first person that's ever called me "stunning." It's terrifying but I really want it to go somewhere...

    I sometimes feel imprisoned by my wife's mood

    swings. Her stress level is high from work and it doesn't take much to set her off raising her voice at me or crying... I could ask if she knows if we have more toothpaste in the other bathroom closet or if she was able to pick up dog food at the store.... I am suddenly...

    but he also makes you the happiest? You want to leave him but you feel like you need him? He hurts you but you feel like he is the only person that can heal you? You can't leave him because you think he's all you have and you're afraid of loneliness? You can't imagine yourself...

    He wouldn't call it complicated.

    I would. As much as we right and argue and disagree and never see eye to eye. And it's like we been together almost two years, what a waste of time if this doesn't work out.
