I'm only with my boyfriend for his family. Don't get me wrong, I have love for him, but it's becoming more that of a best friend and an attachment. I enjoy his company. However, he isn't really a good partner, at least in my standards. He's gluttonous, insecure, and immature at an age where he shouldn't be, which I was happy with until I grew up myself. His family, on the other hand, are people I've always wanted. I grew up in a troubled environment, where I had to take on a parental role for my siblings and have a strained relationship with my parents. Biol-dad is out of the picture, but the step-dad isn't trustworthy. My boyfriend's family is the complete opposite. His mom welcomed me with open arms. She's affectionate in her actions and words. We have such a good relationship. I didn't have to do anything to win her over, she just did it. His siblings see me as an individual -- not someone that has to take care of them. His dad is silly and good-natured. Even their home provides a safe haven of good energy. I know it's selfish. I don't want to lose all of that.
