Can a little be truly satisfied when she’s not in a relationship with a caregiver? This person
and I have not defined the relationship yet. I am concerned that I won’t ever truly be happy in a relationship unless my relationship has little caregiver attributes in it. I have tried to explain this to him but I don’t think he fully understands what I’m saying or the situation. it’s possible that he’s just not into it and that’s why he keeps avoiding it. What is your opinion, do you think it’s possible for a little to be fully satisfied if she doesn’t have a caretaker and that’s what she wants? I truly care about him but I want him to see my perspective also.
It's definitely possible for a little to be happy in a relationship with someone who isn't a caregiver; I've been with my partner almost 12 years. She has no interest in it, though she supports me being myself.
If this person doesn't want to be a caregiver, well, you can't make someone want that. They might not be the right partner for you if you don't think you can be fulfilled in a relationship that doesn't have that dynamic.
You should probably ask them directly, do they want that role in a relationship, and do they understand what it entails. If they still won't give you a straight answer, I guess I would assume that means no.
