    Not sure what my Australian partner means

    I've been dating my man for some time now, but unfortunatly we got to the point where we need to call it off due to circumstances that are not up to us.It's been hard for us both...He said to me "I can't allow myself to let feelings go wild, I have to control them with you" and "I need to keep my emotions under control".I try to understand if it means he has strong feelings for me but tries not to fall even harder, or does it mean something else?Thanks.

    Your location does not appear to be Australia.

    Re: Not sure what my Australian partner means

    Some new members randomly choose profile information options from near the top of each option's pick list, which the forum doesn't allow. "Albania" and "Australia" are both near the top. Your post didn't originate from an Australian IP address, so given the first factor, I suspected your profile information was incorrect.

    MrPalmesh, it sounds like you are probably interpreting his remarks pretty accurately, although we cannot be certain since we know so little about the relationship.
