Luvslife, Thanks for your insight. I know im probably being a woman overthinker. I, just like him have been burned before. Not in just relationships, but friendships as well. I know sometimes i become resentful because i tend to Give, Give, Give and if its not reciprocated or im confused as to how they do, i feel as if im being used. He descibes himself as emotional. It seems as if he has a good heart that has been mistreated and is pretty tender so i am happy to help- like instinct, ...since i like him, i take care of him; much like i do in my relationships.. for now, im opening nervously, but Im guarded. I appreciate your advice more then you know. Thanks so much!
