You always hurt the ones you loveWatch
sounds like good advice to me
This is the reason my current boyfriend didn't want to go out with me for ages - he fancied me but didn't want people thinking he was going out with a slapper (the cheek of it! I wasn't that bad!).
Anyway, we talked it through and I assured him that it didn't matter. We've now been together for ages and are v happy.
If what the guy said was true (about not wanting a relationship right now) you might not get what you want, but at least you'll have tried.
