It might not be cute for-long.

I'm getting close with a guy and he warned me that he likes to take things slow. I told him I thought it was cute and kind of refreshing because most guys just pressure a girl into moving too fast.

He told me that it may not be cute for long, but I hope I still think that later. If not, what does that make me? The answer is a bit unnerving.

Lastly, I hope this isn't just me being a teenage girl and just letting something develop with someone just because they for once have an interest in me. It's happened before and I don't think I could stand breaking another heart to be honest. ..That in itself may even sound far-fetched for high school. It's just high school, so do these relationships even matter? Are they worth it? who is really to tell...
