This was very interesting Kris Gage . I actually just came out of a relationship almost like this but my friend was “guarded” for different reasons. Our time was limited, it came with an expiration date. It was certainly a test for me to learn how to enjoy the moments and just be.
There’s a lot of personal growth that comes with this type of love that’s for sure! It’s about respecting the other person and knowing what you can and can’t handle.
