Is it possible to catch yourself before you fall in love?
I believe I have seen many young guys do this, where they are really starting to grow attached to a girl, but then they either get scared (out of their control), they become distant (by choice) and they do a complete 360 degrees and undo months of dedication and hard work.
I know a guy who broke up with a girlfriend who he claimed to adore, merely because he felt he didn't want to be 19 and in a serious relationship, he sincerely believes that she is THE one, but for some reason, he can't resist the temptation of the single lifestyle. He says he has missed it, the past 10 months he has been with his girlfriend, but at the same time he says it pains him not to be with her. I believe that the guy loved his girlfriend, but wasn't 'in love' with her. I believe one can be controlled and the other cannot, he took a quick detour before he arrives at the latter.
At this stage though it hurts to break, it is still emotionally possible?
What do you think? Is it possible for a guy to detect incoming 'love' and to block it so that he can do what he has to do, such as move to a different location, marry another girl to please his family, obtain freedom so he can chase his career dreams, obtain freedom so he can focus on becoming successful (without the baggage of a girlfriend he 'so dearly loves').
Or do you think that the guys never truly loved the girls, they simply were just very fond of them and just snapped out of the whole daze of pretending that the relationship would last 'til marriage?
What's the verdict?
