I brought it up the other night, and he responded by telling me that He feels like he is a burden to me, he doesn't benefit me, and that he is not good enough for me.
That made me very sad. I guess I just don't understand why a guy would let go of something he thinks is "too good". I definitely do not feel that he is a burden, or not good enough. In fact, I think he's wonderful. Everyone who I've talked to about this tells me to let go (which is a very hard thing for me when I care about someone). The immature little girl in me is scared to even try, out of some hope that he will change his mind.
I know all guys are different, but I'm hoping that a male here will have some solid advice. :/
