Well I myself have been in that situation and it turned into a 4 year love escapade. At first we were just friends through mutual people and then it hit the fan and we were inseparable. The thing I found out is that he was not as mature as I thought he was and when it was time to let go it got violent and I felt like I had two kids. If he’s mature and has a good head on his shoulders then go for it. If he’s looking for a second momma then RUN.
