"Friendship can turn into love," they say.
Yes. I'm pretty sure I figured that out BEFORE you recited it to me a dozen times. I'm keeping my mind open, I'm not pushing the guy out of my life, but I'm not going to fall in love with him just because you think it's about time that I found someone. I know you have my best interests in mind, but I promise I'm not going to become a crazy cat lady or witchy career woman who winds up forever alone.
While it might not seem like it to you, what I'm doing right now is in hopes that, when the right person does come along, I will also be the right person for them.
