You keep asking him where he is, what he’s doing and who he’s with.
Right now, your new man just wants to get to know you better, and he wants the freedom to say you're not 'the one' if things don't work out ...

They are so desperate to feel good about themselves that they become masters of creating compliments out of thin air. These traits become the short list of what you MUST HAVE from a partner to be with them.These relationship conversations (we like the term “State of the Union” conversations) can come over and over as the desperate partner seeks for some handle they can use to sooth their fear of being abandoned.
