Reading these comments do help. At least, it gives me a direction to look at on how to deal with my issue. That 1st link also helps a bit. Makes me examine why I am afraid. As for counseling, as much as I know, I would go there, and end up not talking. I only shared my "past" with her, recently and it did help me a lot.
Indeed, we have a lot of communication and often conversations until the sun rises. I will tell her a bit more about my fears, but also that I love her and trust her. She is a wonderful person, who literally means the world to me.
