In the three years I've known him we've gotten fairly close and I've begun to fall for him. He seems to enjoy snuggling against me, tickling me, etc. Also he has the habit of being over-protective of me. I took this to mean that he was attracted to me, too.

Birthday Faves: 21 Things I Learned in My 21st Year

Senior Files: I’m Graduating as a Single Lady

In high school I was a boyfriend kind of girl. I was never single for long, but instead jumped from guy to guy. I went through every relationship possible.

Coupled. Girls Night!

Last Friday night, I decided to have a girl's night because, let's face it, living in a one bedroom apartment with a guy can take a toll on one's femininity.
