You're special, Captain!
I don't know how you did that but your last paragraph seemed to describe my guy to the tee. I want nothing more than for him to have his freedom but I also want him to realize just how much I care about him. He seems to need me to tell him that I do in my own way and I love doing just that. He's proven to be someone that I can trust fully. He's been so good to me.
I hope that one day my dream will come true with him. Maybe my feelings weren't wrong at all. Thanks to you.
Good luck to you! I hope you have a happy life.
