Hi, I don't post on this board much but thought I'd give it a go!

A couple of weeks ago I was in therapy talking about an old boyfriend from YEARS ago when I was 16 who I absolutely cannot get over.

I was rambling on and then said "Oh my god I know it sounds desperate but I'd do ANYTHING to sleep with him"...

My therapist replied "Mmm yes that does sound desperate!"

WHAT?!

My T is a real femminist I think. Maybe she's even a lesbian. I can just imagine her doing loads of "I hate men" chants and dancing around. She's into Bridget Jones style books like "Learn To Love Yourself", "You Too Can Live Without A Man". She has wild black hair and wears head scarves. And her clothes are quite often hippy. She totally loves it when I act independent and strong and announce that I don't need this guy from my past. And then when I break down and tell her the truth, that I'm totally in love with him and want him to love me and take care of me, ah no no no. That is NOT what she likes to hear!

He he.

And of COURSE I got that same self esteem lecture!
