I Pushed Him Away

After 2 horrible relationships, I finally found my Mr. Right. Because I had been scarred before, I made him work too hard and I pushed him away. Now all I want is to have his arms around me and I don't know how to get that from him. He says that he is tired of relationships and we can be friends, but I am too far gone to just be a friend....

I think it's normal to be scared after 2 bad relationships. Please remember not everyone is the same, and give each person the benefit of the doubt. Use your previous experience to guide you. What are you looking for? What do you like in a man? What you do you dislike in a man? If something seems wrong it probably is. Ask him about it. Give him the opportunity to answer. If he's evasive and won't give you a straight answer, then he's not on the level with you. Move on. If you can't communicate openly and be honest then it'll never work out. My guess is that this guy is gunshy because you've already pushed him away. You're sabotaging this relationship, and you'll continue to do this until you reconcile within yourself the reasons why you're scared. It might take some counseling, but it can be done. Good luck to you.
