Any boy that understands the importance of replacing ice cream is a keeper. Never let him go.
I find that very sweet,actually. You must have been embarrassed, for sure, but if he really is a "guy who treats you right" I'm sure he understood he touched a nerve with that question. Chin up, OP, maybe you found someone worth the wait!
Sometimes our psyche's do weird things. Often times people don't feel they deserved to be treated well. Other times they'll say this can't be all it appears to be. They sabotage themselves. It's sad but I see it in my male and female friends alike, though more often in my female friends. I think it's because people go through so many awful emotionally manipulative relationships, when they meet someone that doesn't treat them like shit, it sets off a red flag that this isn't normal.
You are completely right - that's a huge problem for those who have been mistreated before, especially during childhood. Sadly, if you don't think you're good enough it may happen that you act in a way that leads others to confirm your expectations. That is why finding somebody who treats them right is very important for this type of people, and therapy as well if it comes to that.
