You Make Me Feel Normal?

"My boyfriend says, 'You make me feel normal.'  What does he mean?  Should I be flattered or afraid?"

I was asked this question recently.  He means this:  Most of his life, he feels uncomfortable and out of place around people.  He feels weird and different.  Your love and acceptance of him makes him feel like he's part of something, like he fits in.  He's not sure, but he imagines "normal" people feel that way all the time. 

Should you be flattered?  Yes, of course.  It's a lovely compliment.  You should also be afraid.  I suggest you find a romantic partner who says that you make him feel special or loved or even just good.
