I love a man who feels he can't love
I'm in love with a man and I'm pretty sure he loves me too, but he won't let himself go farther than friends. The thing is, he's very sick and has a short life expectancy. That doesn't matter to me at all... We can be happy now and I could always have those happy memories to cherish. We also happen to live on opposite ends of the Earth, but that shouldn't matter either, though it seems to matter to him.... The worst of it is that..... he's unable to be intimate.... I'm not really sure how to tell him that I'm a virgin so I can't really miss something that I've never had. I don't need intimacy to love him, but I know he's afraid of making a connection with someone and then leaving them behind. He wants me to find someone else, but I just don't know if I could ever give up on him.
