I've caught that look a few times ... I blush and give him my I love u face and he gives me this wow! Your mine face. I might Jst be a hopeless romantic but one thing is for sure our love for each other has grown to be what we need it be.
I have found that true friendship is a rare gift. There are very few people that you can completely rely on so when you find one you should hold on to that person, appreciate everything they do for you, and strive to be someone they can rely on as well.
Playing the "best friend role" only confuses children. Be the parent even if no one played that role for you. Have some self respect and teach that having a man is not the important thing. Having a future is the goal and an education can ensure that.
