Affraid To Love And To Be LovedMy boyfriend tells me "I am affraid". I have never been loved, shown what true love is and I am affraid. I also think I am affraid to love also. I've been burned.
I in the other hand have been burned also but I choose not to play that card. Which would make me miss out.
The difference is that I have had closure on the past. I have done my mourning of the failed marriage.
I have told my boyfriend that I thought I knew what love was up until now. So I have set my own trap in a sence cause of my openess and honesty.
Age is a factor as far as where we both are in life. I am a 43yr old woman and he is 48. Mid-life crissis may be the obvious, but I don't like to label.
I don't know how to ease his worries and not to be affraid especially to let himself be loved. HELP
