If he plays you the song you most want to hear? And there's no real
change? Just lather, rinse, repeat? He is just stringing you along for more suckage. Is that what you want?
How many strikes on this boundary tresspassing issue is he on? In my world,
it is 3 strikes yer OUT. You do not need to be with a non-serious player.
And you are the one actually there, so only you know how many strikes he's banked already.
Me? You SAY you know it is doomed. So respect your OWN limit and take care of your own buckets -- protect your emotional health, mental health, physical health, spiritual health. Don't ignore your own self.
