I'm in my mid-20s and have never had any experience dating - not even holding hands with a guy. Then along comes this guy who seems to genuinely think I'm wonderful and that I'm the one for him. I also think he's a great guy and I really like him too.
No one has ever been this interested in me and it IS a bit frightening. Sometimes I wish this never happened to me so I can stay alone - and safe. Afraid of being hurt. But part of me wants to give this a chance...and give him a chance to open me up. He has done well so far. I fear letting him in the whole way and make myself vulnerable...but I also want to. Aargh, sorry - going around in circles.
Basically, I'd appreciate some words of encouragement or just wisdom to prepare me emotionally for this.

Grab the opportunity. Give him a chance. He might be the guy you're looking for through all these years. Also, this can be a turning point in your love life. By experiencing a relationship, and if it fails, you'll grow more experience and be wiser for your upcoming relationships.2
