Not ready for relationship??

I got divorced in 2011. Started up a friendship with a younger man in 2012 which became more serious in 2013. Now that we are dating I feel myself wanting to "sobotage" the relationship. I mistrust him, without any reason, second guess everything he says and does even though I love this man more than I loved my husband.

I expect him to be "husbandly" towards me and I end up disappointing myself.

Can it be that I am not emotionally ready for a romantic relationship.

I don't think that is it. I went through a simaliar thing when I started dating my current live in boyfriend. I really had to look at myself & ask myself is this the person I see myself with when I get old & I had to look at myself to see why I was doing the things I did. I came to the conclusion that I just wanted to see how much he wanted to be with me & if I pushed him away would he fight for us or would he just walk away. Thats not his problem it's mine so everytime I can see myself puching him away or not trusting him I remember that I do want to be with him & he loves me if that doesn't work I try to look at how my life could be without him & what would I do if I wasn't with him. I start remember the little things he does that makes me happy & not the big thing he did that upset that day. I hope this helps
