You know, this used to be my thought, and then I went through a stage where I just didn't care, and my thoughts got very muddy. About half of the guys I hooked up with quickly were crazy about me after (in an emotional way), and the other half pretended to be emotionally in to me because they liked the hook up. haha
but, then i met my current man. and our chemistry...oh dear god. I have NEVER had that kind of physical and emotional connection with anyone. We ended up sleeping together the first night I ever went in to his house...oops. Afterwords, i was super upset, deathy afraid i had just ruined my chance at a really good relationship. He told me 'this only ruins things if you allow it to.'
Two years later, we are living together and he is saving for the crazy expensive engagment ring I have had my eye on for most of my life. Haha, so sometimes it all works out.
That being said, I wait until I can't wait...
