So, I'm having a difficult time deciding whether or not to date this guy that asked me out. He is one of my close friends and we've hung out for a while and he asked me out last night. I've thought about it, and I just don't know if I truly want to. I feel like I want to give him a chance, but if things don't work out between us I feel like we'd both be torn apart emotionally. I've had problems with my first boyfriend, who I really fell in love with, but then we had a really bad falling out, and I still miss him. But this new guy is really sweet and I think that he could really be good for me. But help me out: what are some ways to decide if it is a good idea to date someone? I need something that will help me decide clearly. Please Help!
