Ew, no. Blech, I don't think so. Or I don't want to think about it, yuck.

Good post. I donít know why it bothers me what they think of me. I donít care what our piano tuner thinks of me. I think Iíll look for a particular sort of person for those 2 sessions. And Iíll wear a brown fur coat disguising my pretty bear shape.

ETA the poster just deleted their post.

ďSorryĒ

I donít want them to like me any more than Iíll probably like them. Itís my process, Iím not interested in whether or not they find me ďlikeableĒ. If they try to share their opinion directly or not, Iíll shut them down, or leave.

no way. i may be an adult only 7 years younger than her, but inside i feel like i'm 12, and i get the sense she sort of sees me that way too.

I never got the impression that a therapist was sexually attracted to me, but I haven't had many male therapists.

No, I don't think she has any sexual feelings toward me. There has never been any sexual chemistry between us, and she seems extremely straight. She has admitted to having maternal feelings toward me, and I do feel those from her pretty clearly.

I have wondered sometimes. I know that he likes me a lot, even admitted having ďtransference feelingsĒ for me but I donít know if it translates to sexual or romantic attraction. I donít see myself as attractive so I have a hard time imagining that others might be.

This is something I really struggle with. I really want to know if he does, but then again if he did tell me that he had those type of feelings towards me, I feel like that would make the relationship unsafe. I have this problem where I feel inadequate or like a failure if any male isnít attracted to me, which is obviously ridiculous because one person wonít be everyoneís type.. so I always looks for subtle signs that prove they are, which is terrible, but my t is very professional so of course I donít get those hints from him. Which I should just be ok with but for some reason I canít be. Itís like that would prove he cares or something.

No, I definitely don't think so. And the lack of it is mutual.
