Do you remember how it felt to be inlove?

I've been in love before, but i guess i was hurt so badly that i cant remember what it feels like, I think that I'm afraid to feel that again. I met some one that is just wonderful, and i care about him a lot, he told me how he felt about me, and i didn't know how to react to that, i wanted to tell him that i felt the same way, but it just would not come out. I just want to be safe, i don't want to have my heart broken again, but at the same time i don't want to loose this person because of my fear. What should i do? Has anyone been in the same situation?

I don't believe in love for myself, to be honest I have never truly been in love, the relationships I have had in the past were based on convenience and I don't think love ever entered the equation. I just don't want the risk, I just don't want the commitment either, I play it safe in that I don't look for love, it's too much stress, heartache, jealousy and hard work, life is complicated enough without adding to it. So I am happily single, always will be, I have accepted that love is NOT for me, and I am fine with that, least my life won't be complicated or I won't suffer pain.

I've been in this situation over 5 years ago. I was hurt by my ex-boyfriend and I was affraid to commit to someone again, affraid to be hurt and perhaps even more affraid of what I was feeling. I chose to take the leap into insecurity and I am glad I did. I have been happily been together with my boyfriend ever since. This september we are together for 6 years. It's all about regaining trust. You can only win if you are willing to take a chance; play the game and who knows what beautiful things might come your way. Don't give up on this person because of what someone else has done in the past. I know I would've been sorry if I hadn't done so. Good luck!
