Thanks, sunny. Everything you say is right on. And I realize there's no commitment, that she hasn't asked me to be "faithful" to her and that I have no obligation to. I just didn't want to mess things up by "two-timing" her right off the bat, in case something *did* develop between us.
But I think that thinking that way may be making me feel too vulnerable.
And her apartment and career and "stuff," and me feeling inferior because of it, that may be a separate issue, actually. You're absolutely right that I shouldn't compare myself to her, but I do, and I feel truly horrible. My T pointed out that this probably has nothing to do with her (which is kind of what you're saying, too, I guess) and was just my own insecurity (and low self-esteem?) rearing its head.
