He's taking it one day at a time. There's no plan for the future... there can't be. It will be a however it goes type of thing.
Regardless of how it works with her, what has gone on between us since he started seeing her has affected our relationship and made me aware that I was trying to make us into something we're not.
I want to be open and honest and real and talk and be able to lean on him when I need it for empathy and for comfort and hugs.
I can do about half of that. And I have to learn to accept that's what he has to offer and be happy with that. And get any other needs met elsewhere, through friends, or counselors or other SOs.
That's the part I really need to work on.
