Okay, so here is a thought, am I the only one who wants her boyfriend to be a little protective? I mean not overly protective where every little thing causes an argument but enough to show that he cares and that he is proud to be mine.
It seems as though there is only one extreme with guys. They can only either give their whole selves to you or not enough or some get so confused they vary from one to the other sporadically. It's like 'come on guys! Are we really that hard to understand?'
