I've been friends with this guy for like 7 years, but during the past 2 years we have been considering dating... you know just an option. He always disrespects me and treats me like he is my dad... but if he were half the man my dad is we wouldn't have issues. I think he has a lack of respect for me because he has a lack of respect for himself... he is insecure and treating me like i mean nothing makes him feel like he means something! HELP ME!!!
