Exactly! I can't say that I'm clear on how I feel at this point and I am focusing a lot on the fears this brings up in me, so that I can face them.
But, definitely; a partner is going to treat me the same way he treats his other partner.
Be warned of the dynamic that plays out with a person who likes to please others and isn't honest with themself! Either the person burns out and then suddenly drops a bomb. Or they slowly fester and start resenting because they're doing things they don't actually feel in their heart.
