Hi, I just read your blog, and I wanted to share my experience. I am married to an Aries. When they want something, nothing stops them. My Husband was engaged to his ex for 6 years, and never Married her, and we were married within a few months after meeting. Everyday I see my Husband go for something he wants, and does not ponder it for long, or at times, not at all.
I would say that your friend is just not going any further with this, sorry if that is blunt, but that is my experience..good luck..
