I am dating my therapist

If you’ve been asked out by a therapist, don’t run away just because you assume you’ll be overanalyzed and judged on your date. Therapists are great listeners, and intentionally do so without judgement.

It was the case in your past, but it is not the case now with your therapist.

Well, as hell would have it I have fallen furiously in love with my therapist to the point of shear and utter agony.

We are just now starting to work at it as of last week.

Certainly in my limited experience this is not the sort of thing I’ve been encouraged to warn patients about. For another thing, when it does occur, it is not necessarily a bad thing from the therapist’s point of view.

Let me explain this a little because this is not because the therapist is trying to be cruel.
