I think I may have come up with something. I'm not a risk taker with men- I never have been. Really, waiting on Joe isn't a risk for me at all b/c it's not like I'm meeting lots of guys, and my life is no different from it was before we got back together. It's not a risk because I'm not losing anything. If a suitable guy asked me out, I'd probably say yes and try to keep things casual. THEN I'd be taking a risk, and I'd probably go nuts with the decision.
So, whaddaya think? Are you a risk taker with love? Can you give examples of times when you have taken a safe risk with someone? (I'm not talking about moving in after a week or anything like that. Maybe a time when you kept a guy around when you weren't sure of the spark or something like that.)
