I recently started seeing a friend I've known for close to 20 years. We both just got out of long relationships about a year ago. He says he's crazy about me, loves being with me..but every time things start to progress, he freaks out, tells me he doesn't like me like that, and says all kinds of hurtful things to push me away. A few days later, he comes back around saying he misses me and things go back to normal until the next panic sets in. We haven't even gone on a real date because the word completely freaks him out. He says he runs because he starts getting attached, and he doesn't want to be. He's constantly mentioning me to his family and friends, always discussing it with them. Everyone knows he's nuts about me, but they also know how horrible his ex screwed him over, and that's why he's so afraid of being in a relationship. I lay low and give him his space, I don't push, and he always comes back..but he's just so scared..I love him to death but I just don't know what else to do, any advice would be soo appreciated!
