I am just starting out in a relationship that has the potential for turning into something long term. We were friends first; I tell him everything and he does the same with me. I care about him deeply, and am afraid to let the relationship progress any further, because I'm afraid that in some way I'm going to hurt him. I saw how much pain he suffered when his last girlfriend hurt him, and I don't ever want to do that to him. I have no intension of hurting him, but we are so close. Another problem I have is that I've never been in a serious relationship before. I'm afraid to commit. I know we both have very strong feelings for each other, but it hasn't been until recently that we've acted on them. Things are moving fast. I care about him so much that I just want to make sure he's happy. If I care about him as much as I do, why am I so scared to continue with this?
