Yes, it's nice to have someone to hold your hand. It's also nice knowing you can stand on your own. Pull your own weight. I like being able to stand on my own. I like not focusing on a guy.
But when you fall for someone it's hard. The key is when you don't know if they will hurt you or how they feel towards you. I shut it off... Should I shut it out? I'm still a great friend to him. It's it better that way? I've already lost 2 best friends cause i have dated them. Is better to leave it alone?
