A close friend, or fiance, shouldn’t be responsible for managing your insecurities. Sure, they listen, support and sometimes offer advice. They shouldn’t be your everything. What you’re suggesting is the the LW’s finance be her husband, her best friend, her therapist, and her friend finder. That’s not sustainable for one person to manage.

There is something holding the LW back when she meets new people.

I didn’t say complex = good. I think female friendships, especially with social media, are complex, making them hard to navigate and figure out. She spent years pushing people away. That’s a lot to unpack. This is another reason she shouldn’t depend solely on her fiancé for support. And now she’s supposed to limit contact with her sister too? Very isolating.
