The area I would be moving to I’ve visited before. It’s very pretty. Very rural. It’s not what I’m used to though.
I’m used to sidewalks and having 100 different ways to walk my dog. The new area is really pretty. But in the new neighborhood it’s right or left.
Also, New Jersey is all I’ve ever known. However I will be making more money, my daughter will be one floor above me and my commute to work will be 5(10) miles as opposed to 21(42). Car insurance is WAY cheaper.
I still have to work on the landlord about my cat. I think I can wear him down.
I will miss my friends here and the sound of the beach. I’m still so confused.August 8, 2015 at 12:05 pm #81456

Thank you Kori. Your kindness really helped. It’s tough but your gracious hug helped!!January 7, 2014 at 7:22 pm #48643
Thank you so much for your kind words. It’s almost as if you have a window into my head. You put far more eloquently than I did how I feel.
You really and truly made me feel better. I’m going to bookmark this page, your warm and empathic response and go back to it when I need to. You’re one of the reasons why people go to this site. To get advice from someone who cares, but who can also be honest, like a good friend.

I guess I am asking for a way to communicate or help him. He told me he has a habit of shutting people out when he’s in a mood. I’m the type that when something is bothering me, I let everyone within earshot know. If course I’m exaggerating to make a point but you know what I mean. He’s a bit of a puzzle to me. I’m such an extrovert.
I also have a habit of taking things personally. I’m thinking to myself that he’s not confiding in me deliberately. When it may be just a “guy thing”.
All of the above its why I’m confused.August 18, 2013 at 7:26 pm #40735
Thank you everyone who replied.July 9, 2013 at 6:11 am #38250
Thank you so much for your valuable insight. I guess you introverts must feel like Dian Fossey at a game reserve. LOL
I am very extroverted and he has told me that I wear my heart on my sleeve. He’s right I really do. I guess the combination of his being an introvert and having been so hurt in the past are making for a double whammy of sorts.
I just wish I was better at being patient. I care for him a great deal and hopefully in time he will be comfortable enough to feel the same way.
Thank you Lara

Thank you again.I will do my best to be patient. I wish I had HIS patience, as it’s not exactly my forte. I guess learning patience NOW is kind of ironic.
I really doesnt mean “who do you belong to” like that. We say it to each other. It’s usually after we have our alone intimate time together. It’s kind of out of context. To go into more detail would be ummm indiscreet.
I will keep your flower analogy in my head.

Thanks for answering so quickly.
I don’t know how to assure him that I won’t hurt him. I am very extroverted and he is quite the introvert. Sometimes I feel like I am coaxing a rabbit out of a hole.
He tells me that I am warm, loving and luscious and that no one has EVER affected him like I do. That he feels like a kid with a crush again. I think he is as confused as I am. Your answer of :
“Is it safe to love you?” “Will I be hurt?” His question seems awkwardly phrased, but I’m trusting your interpretation.
Do you feel that is what he is saying to me but not in so many words? He has admitted that he is “cautious” about sharing too much. What I do know about his past bad experience is that he was intimate with someone and that it went VERY wrong. It even resulted in him having to take legal action and that as a result he was very hurt.
Thank you again,
