My boyfriend worships me. Is this okay?
I (19F) was my boyfriend’s (19M) closest friend during the darkest time of his life and i guess that made him view me as some kind of savior.
We’ve been dating for a year now. He will do literally anything for me. It’s a little scary, but i love him and will never leave him. I’m just wondering if this is good for the both of us on the long term.
Your comments would be very much appreciated.
My boyfriend and i were best friends. We met as classmates in secondary school. He was being targeted by the other kids and i was the only one protecting him since i was one of the ‘popular girls’ back then.
He lost his mom in a car accident back then and I still remember the look on his face, he was suffering a lot especially due to his soft personality.
I was the only one who comforted him when he was grieving over his mom’s death. His father and brother aren’t close to him or each other, so i was the only one for him.
I understand why he loves me so much, to this extent now that we’re dating, but i guess those years of isolation made him think that he doesn’t need anyone but me.
He said to me one night that if i ever tell him to drink poison he would do it, all while staring into my eyes lovingly.
I tried suggesting therapy, but he said he doesn’t need it while looking at me directly through his eyes. Honestly, it’s a little scary.
Even though i know he would never dare to hurt me, i don’t want him to hurt others for me either. Is this okay? What should i do?
Thanks in advance.
