Hi... I am in serious need of advice.
I just started dating an exceptionally accomplished man. He is wealthy, smart and articulate. On top of it all, he is a really nice person.
Here is my issue.... even though I am a successful, professional woman, I feel SOOO intimidated by him. It is plaguing me and making me question how I act and look, whether I am appropriate, rich enough, etc. Please note... he knows that I do not have what he does and never makes a point to boast or anything of that nature. Still, though, I feel inadequate and I hate the feeling. I am never prone to low self esteem and, frankly, this is the first time that I have dated a man whom I actually admired.
Is it wrong to playfully tell him that I am intimidated by him? I am looking for any way to put myself at ease. I am hoping that he will respond with something that allows me some relief!
Thanks in advance for any advice!
