ok well first off he wouldnt be my first boyfriend. i have dated before. thing is, i like this guy "jake". he really likes me too. he has asked me out alot and we talk all the time. he is the same grade as me. we will be soph. next year. i have told him i dont really want to date him because of my schedual. im on varsity basketball, school is gettin harder by the min. he said he would wait for me. i told him i want to wait until next year when im a lil older and stuff. i know he probably would wait. there is something about him, that makes me feel so safe when just talking to him. he calls me eight times a day literally and i call him too, we talk for hours. on the weekends we talk all night. i dont feel like dating because, i think he could be something special. i know it probably wouldnt last because now it would be considered "puppy love" right. but there is a small chance it will. and i know he would make me happy. i want to be old enough that when we do date, its something i can handle. i want to be able to say no, and what is okay to do. i know with him it will be a long lasting relationship. and i know he will never make me do something i dont want him to do. he has a lil anger management problem, he likes to fight guys, i think maybe an ego problem, like he wants to act macho you know. I dont necessarily believe in love at first sight, because a the relationship would be based on looks only,to have a healthy relationship looks dont matter, you have to take a deeper look and really know that person. i have taken a deeper look, and maybe he isnt the hottest guy, he still is someone im starting to fall for, whether it be, puppy love or an actual heart throbbing love. its all love, isnt it. i feel like i have known him forever and i know he will wait. i told him not to, he should date others, and he says he wont date until he dates me. he says these things, they are so... i dont know incredible, but his words capture me. i just wish i could kiss him, and not let it become more of a friendship yet. i want to "know him" but i dont want it to go beyond the extent of a platonic relationship. Do you ever kiss a friend, and just a friend. is it ok to do that? someone help me please with what is ok and what is not okay for a platonic relationship. there are all these different guys at school, he just happend to cross my path one day and catch my eye. my friends dont like him too much. "hes not hot, hes a F*g" but i like him and thats all that matters. so if you could help me to know whats crossing the like, i would appreciate that.
