Battered And Beaten

I am scared to love because it seems like I always get hurt. I don't know how many guys post on here but I've definitely had my fair share of heartbreaks over the years. Mine mainly originate because I always end up moving around so I fall victim to long distance relationships or i just get cheated on. I won't lie....I am a classic "nice guy" so I don't know if that has anything to do with it, I'm one of those guys who would never cheat on his gf but has been cheated on. Sometimes I wonder if just one relationship could work out the way a healthy relationship should be, the damage is getting unbearable and I don't know what to do because I don't want to get hurt again. It's even gotten to the point where I'd meet a girl and we would both have feelings for each other but I'm so afraid of something going wrong that I just stand by and do nothing, with my heart breaking. Then I guess she gets discouraged and finds another guy to move on to, which I think is even more hurtful because I stood there being afraid instead of taking a shot at what could have been something good.

On and off again; that is how I am feeling right now. I have met someone but unsure where she wants to go at times. I met her when she had just gotten out of a bad relationship with her future husband a few months before and almost going to graduate college. She tells me she wants to be together, just not now. Sometimes I do think she does want us to be together based upon what she says and does and other times vice versa. I wonder if I should move on or stay and think something will happen. I want to believe her, but don't know if I can.
