I just want to say thank you to everyone...
I recognize that this relationship doesn't fit what I want for me right now.
I didn't think I was minimizing what we were doing or the harm it could cause to his other partners by saying that we didn't have "sex", but I guess
I do feel defensive about it so maybe I was using that as a shield subconsciously, I don't know.
I have been avoiding him lately
but that's not a good solution either, especially since I don't want to lose him as a friend since he has been there for me through tough times. I am going to see him tonight and hopefully the talk will go well.
Any advice on how to word things?
Anabell, I really liked the example you gave about non-judgemental communication... thank you!
I know I shouldn't be so scared to lose anybody and... I guess if he doesn't understand then that's just gonna be the way it is...
