He knows me completely. Hate it.

by Hollowglass on May 19, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Have you ever been with someone so long that they know everything about you? After 3 years he knows everything, even things I didn't know about myself he perceives. Sometimes it makes me feel shallow, like I'm not a complete enough human to have mystery within me. I want to be loved because I am alluring and captivatingly interesting, not because I am comfortable.
