i LOVE my friends!! we cant always hang out but we're always there for each other, and we always pick up where we left off without any drama/awkwardness/hard feelings!!! :D we are all very hard-working & busy but we always know we love each other!!!
That sums it up well. No matter how bad things look or are will you still be there? Stop the child's play and be a real adult if you want to have something real. If you want to be recognized and respected as an adult defend what you want and go for him
