Conflicted feelings

by anonymous

So my boyfriend and I have been together for almost 2 years now. We have been living together since 6 months into our relationship. I've been getting these feelings on and off for a little over 6 months now, trying to decide if I really want to spend my life with him and honestly a lot of things we don't have in common.

We have in common that we both comfort each other and feel safe with each other. It's always felt like that since before we started dating (we were friends for a while) I mean don't get me wrong I love him but is love really enough? I feel awful for feeling this way and that if he asked me to marry him right now I don't think I .... would want to.

I need advice, opinions, anything. My head is going round in circles and I can't catch a break my mind is constantly running.

"You gave us counseling without making either one of us feel that you were taking sides.
You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
