See your friends, take yourself to a movie, catch up on some work, or just be by yourself and breathe.It can be a beautiful thing if you let it, but if you don’t, he’ll feel the pressure of being the only thing in your life, even if it goes unsaid. You have something real and maybe even rare with him, and the only thing either one of you wants to do is plan a life together. No one is putting a gun to your head and forcing you to be in this relationship.
I get lost in my own plans to ensure that I get whatever it is I think I need and become convinced that there must be some “answer” that I just haven’t found yet.

Tell me one more time that it’s not personal, I dare you. His kids dislike you only as a concept, not as a person—they’re looking for that same safety and stability we all are, and you just happen to be the embodiment of all that threatens that.To give you a better overall experience, we want to provide relevant ads that are more useful to you.For example, when you search for a film, we use your search information and location to show the most relevant cinemas near you.You’re entitled to your feelings about that, and you get some space to make it about you, too, because some of it is.There’s nothing worse than a desperate clown doing tricks for approval.Kids have an instinct for sniffing out bullshit, and if you try too hard, they’ll take a magnifying glass to whatever warts they’ve already decided you have.
