You're right in that if you try to push her she will most likely push you away. Maybe you could just open up communication and try to understand why she wants to take it slow and why she's afraid of getting hurt. Maybe you could set up relationship goals or talk about what it will take for her to trust you.
yeah i know
i'm 22 she's 20, i'm not waithing for sex or physical intimacy, when that happens it will happen, no pressure there...
i guess my biggest problem is that i understand what she means about being scared of being hurt again. this is the first time i've decided to let my heart open since my messy breakup, not saying i love her or anything, but i'm open to the chance of love again. i'm ready to risk the heartbreak again, becaues she's worth it. but i opened my heart because i felt ready, and judging on the way we interact i thought that it was worth the gamble, but then she'll bring up her insecurities in falling for me and that panic's me i guess. she'll say things like "what if we're too different"... i guess i'm waiting for the "it may not work out, but i'm willing to try"...
if any of that makes sense
