Hmmm.. I too am in the same situation, only for me it is a repeating pattern. I am upfront and honest with my therapist. He doesn't seem too concerned, but I'm not as honest as I should be. It would only make him blush! Umm, with me it is a matter of finding a "daddy" or transference as they call it. If you are not familiar with the term, there are many other threads here about it. If that is not the case, it doesn't help that he gives you personal information aobut himself (although I know you like it, as I do). /the whole thought is that a therapist is supposed to be a blank slate and that is why a client falling in love with him/her seemed odd. Until transference came to be known. You have 2 options at this point. If you feel that the infatuation is helpful and is not hurting the theraputic relationship, then what is the harm? However, if you are fearful of being honest, because "What will he think of me?" then maybe you should fess up. It isn't nearly as embarrassing as you think it might be. Good luck in which ever decision you make and keep me posted. Karen
