Happy belated birthday. and Congratulations to the both of you. As an older woman who has been where you might be going, I think the advice that Pat Roth gave you is great and worth listening to. Best of Life to you, and God bless you and keep you in His will. Karen

Best wishes, take your time and ovserve him in challenging situations, how he treats his mother, or clerks in a store. Or try to do a project with him. These things should bring out his true colors and help you to feel comfortable with feeling happy! PR

That is wonderful advice that I totally agree with and would recommend to everyone. Ricky and I have been together for a little more than 3 years. The kindness that he showed to those around him is what made me notice and fall in love with him. He worked at a convience store when I met him, as well as being a volunteer fireman, and also taking any spare time he had trying to organize fundraisers for the voluteer fire department, and if someone came in the store where he worked and didn't have enough money for their things he would either pay for it for them or let them charge it under his name until they got paid. He put his own life on hold for about 5 years to move in with his mother and take care of her when she had trouble taking care of herself. He is by no means perfect but no one is. The best thing is how he takes care of me and I really don't have to do anything if I don't want to. He will do all the cleaning, dishes, laundry, everything if I allow it. With my health some days I don't feel like doing anything and that's okay with him. I married my first husband in 96 only a year after meeting him. The only good thing that came out of that was my daughter. He was mean and cruel, almost like he had multiple personalities or something because one minute he would be sweet and kind and the next he would be a monster. So, needless to say, I have been very cautious this time around. I do appreciate all the kind comments and the advice. I have definately learned to listen to others…they usually know what they're talking about!! :)

Is this guy a really good friend or someone that you admire from a distance? If he is a really good friend then just tell you have something you want to talk to him about. Tell him how you feel and that you totally understand if he just wants to remain friends but that you just wanted him to know that if he's interested in more then so are you.
