    the feeling that this man is the one has not left me. He's definitely not ready for commitment, due to my past with my male friends(who I treat like female friends, and this leads to language that seems flirtatious when it is not.) and a manipulator that was bent on ruining my...

    It's honestly becoming an issue!

    I'm obsessed. It's all I look at on pinterest, and for some reason I'm so concerned with the fact that all of our close friends are already married or engaged. I don't know why it bothers me so much because we've only been together for a year. help :/
