I have gone from younggrandma to just yg. Now,
I am using my real name.
I don't think anyone who knows me will have trouble figuring out who that is!

I have been gone a while dealing with things in my own life. I am back now to help once again. Do not expect answers from me that just tell you what you want to hear. Life is to short for nonsense. :)

So, I've liked a lot of guys before but never did I expect to come across one like this. He's smart. He knows that true love overlooks the little flaws. He's intelligent, witty, and very thoughtful. We've been talking every day for the past two weeks and I hear he likes to talk to me. I'm really scared though. He knows that I'm scared of getting hurt in any relationship, which is why I don't put myself out there. He's very optimistic about life while I tend to be somewhat on the negative side.
What should I do? I'm scared to like him. What if he's just being nice? What if he doesn't like me? I think I'm way in over my head?
I think I wanna cry.
Sorry for sounding so choppy. :/ (link)
It sounds like you've had some good conversations during the last couple of weeks! It sounds like you know a lot about each other.

First of all, you don't need to "hear" he enjoys talking to you. You know it already, right? Guys just do not waste time talking to girls about feelings & stuff if they aren't interested in you.
He's not just acting nice. He likes you. :)

I know you must have been hurt in the past. You may be hurt again in the future. BUT, we can't live in the past. If you want to find love and happiness, we have to take the risk and put ourselves out there.

My advice to you is to stop looking for bad signs.
Look hard enough and you will talk yourself out of any relationship. Give yourself permission to be happy. With luck you'll become more optimistic!
Stop worrying about what will happen later. Give the guy a chance if you like him, take it slow.

Good luck.
