They don’t feel comfortable telling me their problems or about their past

Some men have thought that once they tell me about their past or things that they are going through, I will immediately switch from potential girlfriend to therapist and try to counsel them. That’s not what happens at all. When I am outside of my office, it’s my responsibility to have boundaries and always remember that my role at my job is not my role in my relationship.
