The trouble with dating a psychologist Open sex chating words
The answer is sometimes, but I will explain a bit further and clear up some of the more common questions.

Too often people end up ruining their chances with the person they are dating by committing fixable errors.Not the case with Kyle, who talked about his therapist and how a past relationship gutted him — on the first date!I was very impressed with how forthcoming he was, so I talked about my last relationship as well as some things I’d learned in therapy.What my therapist boyfriend (let’s call him Brady – he’s a real life therapist, so we have to be confidential here! Duh, listening is his job, but I mean, he actually hears what I am saying.

When I say, “We need to talk”, his “okay” is not the “here we go again” that most guys react with. Pro-tip: Don’t date a therapist if you want someone to fix your life for you. Brady is pretty hands-off as far as trying to get in my head.
