Our expert says:
As I keep saying leaping into close relationships with someone on the rebound after the ending of another relationship, whether ordinarily or tragically, is rarely wise --- the person is vulnerable, needy, and may well deserve support and friendship, but does not need to plunge into another intimate relationship until the previous break-up has been worked through.
From what you say, you were both desperately neediy when you came together. Though it was wise of you to see a shrink, it sounds as though you had not finished the necessary work before you entered on this relationship. It sounds as though you may be moving too fast, before either of you are ready to handle the demands of greater intimacy.
