It's just fascinating to hear how each therapist-patient pair interacts. Even though ours seem quite alike, there are some differences. I've not told mine that I like him,(I do) so I don't know if he'd ask me if i thought he liked me. Perhaps not. I think it's wonderful that yours does that. Mine talks about us being a "good fit" quite often, and I feel he's right. He puts a high value on unanticipated "moments of meeting". ALL of these involve eyes! Sometimes it seems like i am constantly searching his eyes- WHO is he really? Can I can know who's really there- if he cares about me, understands me, if I care about him, understand him. It's so wonderful when the answer is "yes", and so sad and devastating when it's "no". And I spend a LOT of time talking about his eyes! It's really scary to sit right there staring at his eyes and talking about what they look and feel like. I really feel like a baby searching its mother's eyes- I'm sure that's what I am during those times. Sometimes he invites me to just sit there quietly with him. We are just staring at each other! Then I just break down into sobs and we get into that place where you don't use words any longer.

He says the couch is "ready and waiting" any time I am. I have gotten the impression that he wants to increase the sessions, and maybe have me use the couch in January. But what am I going to do if I can't look at his EYES!!!!!
