That's exactly what my bf says about me; he just wants to be part of my life, whatever role that puts him in be it friend, boyfriend, fwb. And I have no problems being weird about ex bf's...I try to stay friends with all my exes and I am really sad when some of them never want to see me again for whatever reason. I could never have my current bf out of my life, it hurts too much to even think of it.
He and I just get along so well and I enjoy our conversations and the things we do together. He is one person I truly believe I could tell anything to, absolutely anything no matter how dark or embarrassing. It's hard to find that degree of unconditional love. I just wish I could reciprocate everything and be able to give him all the freedom he needs without feeling so jealous and upset inside.
