Forgot to add: The closest that it came to a conflict was in the early days, when I was still in a very idealized transference with my pdoc. (Since then, he has slipped from his pedastol a bit, though I am sure there is still transference without a doubt.) Anyway, she said, "Be careful not to idealize him." That made me feel a bit defensive.

I'm sure she is right that I idealize him, but telling me not to do that just made me feel censored in a way.

I think that is the only time I felt kind of torn about having them both. I am sure I do idealize him more than her, but I think that is simply because I have a good relationship with female friends, my mom, etc., but I have not had a good track record with romantic relationships and my Dad was impaired in his parenting because of alcoholism.

So I think the idealism may be because I am simply not used to that level of kindness and attention from a man. Of course, that compassion is paid for and I do want to find a form of that from men in my "real life," in a realistic setting.
