Most Helpful Girl
Give him a a Final Fair warning, @Meredy, that if he doesn't stop 'Always trying to hold me and stuff,' you both will Have to go back To... Decided to end it.
He may feel that even with being a bestie from the restie, you Enable him to feel comfy enough to do this 'Stuff.'
Be firm, be your own straw boss. However, I also believe, that even if you told him "Hands off" tomorrow, your own broken heart would hold a lot of sorrow.
Try and get on the same page. He loves you here, dear, and that says a mouthful Where... Actions on his own part speak More volumes.
Good luck, xx0
