Afraid of Being Dumped...Again
"I am dating a wonderful woman, but I am afraid she will dump me, which has happened to me several times before. How can I overcome my fears?"
Maybe you didn’t find the right person to love you before this, or you may have some personality traits that hurt your chances of having a permanent relationship.
Talk with a coach about the reasons for your previous breakups. If you are at fault for them, figure out what you did wrong. Your ex-girlfriends may have told you that you are self-centered. You could work with your counselor to change that.
What I’m worried about is that your fears will scare off the woman who actually loves you. If you keep your distance, you will ensure that the relationship will fail. Be open and trust the love she shares with you.
