Hi there. I just started dating this guy. We knew of each other for a little while, but recently have been talking/texting every day for almost a month. We have hung out one-on-one before, and I can tell that he really likes me. He says sweet things like that and is affectionate.
The problem is that I have these bad memories of dating guys or being interested in guys who used me, kept me around just to hook up with while being dishonest, and now I associate having sex with “the beginning of the end.”
To me, it symbolizes the point where things go downhill, because the guy gets too comfortable. I really like this guy, and most of me doesn’t think that he’ll “switch up” after having sex. The other part, albeit small, is getting a bad case of deja vu, and I don’t want things to change because I’m starting to really like him. How do I stop these reservations based on experiences that happened way before him?
