I'm the first guy she is dating. In fact she never thought much about any other guy before this. I feel extra burdened by keeping things gentle and trying to make her feel positive and comfortable. How do I keep things easy for her yet not be upset myself? I do understand she's trying somewhere. But I constantly fear she might end up doing something just because she might think I want it that way. I'm waiting for the time she might be able to express more. Can't tell her about it (or she might just be burdened herself).

Im in this situation. Im on my second boyfriend, but the first was extremely casual so this is really truly my first relationship. I've never had to open up and let someone in before. Plus, im showing all of me and not just what I want the other person to see, now. Its nerve wrecking. Especially as more feelings develop. Im connected to this person in an intimate way. I feel like I know them, but Im aware I only know so much. I dont know how he reacts when things aren't going his way, when he's angry, when he's upset. Weve never even fought... Those are the things your girlfriends going to worry about. She'll go through different stages of acceptance and your relationship will evolve as she becomes more comfortable.1
