I've noticed something really weird about myself - I was with a great guy, who was slow to show his feelings - so, I intuited the atmosphere and never was to clingy or said "I love you" etc. it was a deep and caring relationship but I sensed from him how I would interact.
Then, I started dating this kind of needy, put the cart before the horse guy who said I love you within days or weeks and wanted to run off together - completely unrealistic. I respected his ability to take such risks, honestly, even if I wasn't comfortable doing the same (and didn't feel the same). But with him, I mirrored very different "acceptable" behavior - being more emotionally volatile, waking away and coming back (figuratively) over and over and over ad nauseam. Much drama.
Reading this, realizing, I don't like this - it looks as if I am not my own person. I don't feel that way though- I think of myself as adaptable. Is there any positive side of this story, really, though? Or is this pathetic on my part?
