Is it worth my heart and my happiness to try and be with the guy I like. Should I risk every part of me to make him see that not all relationships are bad? Tell me your honest opinion, I want to know...
Yes but know that it might take time. But then again no good things come easy. If you really like him don't give up. Maybe he's been through shit. Make him believe you and remember actions speak louder than words.
If you feel that strongly about him, put everything out there about how you feel. If he is not wanting to give it a shot with you then you need to leave it be. You can't/shouldn't try and convince someone to be with you
The eff do you think your life is, a sappy teen romance novel? You can't "make" someone be your ideal, nor should you have to go sacrificing everything just to get some guy. Find a guy who is actually into you and wants a relationship. Guys are real people, not fictional characters to be adjusted at whim.
