Advice for a friend.
My friend has had some bad luck when it comes to dating, and she feels she is ready to just meet her person and settle down. However, she also still has a lot of stuff she wants to explore in herself and about relationships. She went out on a great first date with a real gentleman — lots of chemistry, he treated her just right, etc. — but she already knows he’ll be leaving for a job abroad (army-related) in September.
Should I advise her to go for it, and see it as an opportunity to learn more about herself in a sort of risk free environment (because she already knows the limitations), not to mention enjoy a lovely summer of dating, or should I say she should cut out now, knowing how easily she gets attached and how sad she will be when he leaves?
