how did it feel?

I like my boyfriend, and I liked him all of last year, but idk. Now that he's my official BOYFRIEND it just seems weirdddish. idk, my feelings aren't very strong and I defiantly like him, but I'm just very unsure; about everything. I like being with him, but I don't know how much I 'like' him. Like if he started talking to another girl, I'd get jealous. But if he broke up with me, I feel like I wouldn't care that much. IM JUST SO CONFUSED. my feelings are all over the place. How much did you like your bf/gf when you first started going out?

This sounds exactly like me when I first started dating by current boyfriend about two years ago.

Obviously it's a lot easier to fantasize about a relationship (and a lot safer) than to actually enter into one, so often times, after people have been infatuated with someone and then enter into an actually relationship, it can be a little awkward. Before, you never had to worry about commitment, or anything that comes along with a serious relationship. Now that you're actually in one, all of those things are coming into play, and it can be a little unnerving.

I would just give yourself time to get to know this person better, and become accustomed to having a serious relationship. If it turns out you don't like him as much as you thought, nothing wrong with that. But if things are destined to work out, you'll probably see a shift in your attitude.
