Im glad it was better, even if it was still a little strange.

Its interesting (and, I think, a very positive thing) that he said he doesnt want to do something that makes the little girl go away. And I think its good that he said its time to get real. But, of course, getting real involves a lot of trust.

However, I still have the sense (from what you said) that hes holding back a little. Maybe part of it is that he doesnt want to scare the little girl. And I wonder if another part of the equation is that he wants to take time to make sure hes ready. Maybe hes both excited about the potential and a little anxious about what it will mean for your therapy. I suspect he knows hell have to be very careful with the little girl. I often think therapy involves trust on both sides, and perhaps hes trying to be absolutely certain that he trusts you and that your trust in him wont be misplaced, when it comes.

I think he would get the party hat out if you can manoeuvre the relationship to a point where you can trust him. It sounds to me as if hes preparing to take it all to the next level. I imagine that youre picking up on his anxieties about it. But it seems to me that hes trying quite hard to make it possible which should be a good thing, right?
