I am dating my therapist

I don't have a problem with relationships, however I do tend to "psychoanalyze" my bf a lot (things he does, how he relates to me).

Of course, after a breakup, once you start putting the clues together, it seems like you never should have expected anything else – the red flags were lined up in a row waving in your face, and the only reason you failed to see them was that you didn’t want to look. I was ever more sure he had never Tindered; he probably met all his girlfriends at psychology conventions or walking through Paris in the springtime.

Still, I took it like a champ — at least, I thought so.

Even if I am thinking about someone in a psychological manner, I never tell them I have. I don't think anyone I've ever been in a relationship with would ever say I acted like a psychologist in the relationship.

I'm a therapist.I will be in May when I have my masters degree.

It took a week and a few glasses of wine but I did it.

But I don't think using one's knowledge to analyze an interpersonal situation is out of line unless it is the only way you relate or you overdo it.

If you back up your observations with specific examples about the person's behavior or the situation, then it becomes clear whether you're just psychobabbling or you're really onto something.

But what she didn’t expect was for him to become her dating coach. You reel them in with jokes and then…” He continued to stare at me blankly. And if someone didn’t get that, that was OK with me. “You have to tell me about all the messages that come in,” said my friend, pleased with our work. She is also the author of Save the Date, a memoir about what she learned about relationships, friendship, marriage, love and herself after attending 17 weddings.

Here, she shares his piece of life-changing advice… It was unexpected, right before we were supposed to take a romantic trip together. like that,” I explained, and my therapist looked at me, confused. “You’re going to get a lot.” Like clockwork, there it was.

Pro-they are understanding, empathetic (considering that they may have had dysfunctional relationships-which just makes them better IMO), and listen w/o judgement.
