I think nice guys finish last, because girls who get their hearts brutally smashed, are so afraid to fall in love again.
I'm guilty of that.
But it helps when the guy trying to woo you, is understanding, and patient. My being honest about having to take baby steps so far, has been a very good thing!
Too much too soon is scary! Enough, in small doses, is perfect!
I have never ever been put on a pedestal before, and it's kind of weird. But that is where I am right now. I am trying to enjoy the moment, and go with the flow. When someone sees the real you, when you are trying to hide it from the world, it's kinda scarey.
I don't want to look for ulterior motives. Or pick apart every sweet word or gesture....but he certainly treats me like a lady, and I am enjoying every minute, at my own pace.
I do know that I deserve to be happy, and treated well...but allowing it to happen, is oddly challenging.
Why is that?
