Maybe because I distrust him. Maybe I just lack confidence. Am I lying to myself? Or is it intuition? Why is it that every time he says he loves me, hugs and kisses me, and texts me sweet things, it breaks my heart? It's like he just says what he thinks I want to hear. Like he's around just enough so that I won't disappear. He's a wonderful person in person - affectionate, loving, and treats me well. He's terrible at long distance affection - like I hardly exist. Thing is, he's usually pretty upfront when he tells me how he feels (If he does) and he's very straight forward. He says things the way they are. When I'm being pessimistic, he's the first to be optimistic. When I'm optimistic, he's pessimistic.
