Like any girl I have a guy in my life right now that makes me feel like I'm on the top of the world. He knows my past and accepts it. I showed him the scars from when I used to cut and he kissed them, told me I would never have to feel that low again, and hugged me. When I cry he holds me and listens as I tell him whats wrong. He is a complete gentlemen and at the same time a complete child. Now here's where I need advice. My mother doesn't like him, because in her words, "This family is full of nurturers, which means we think we can change people. Thats why we get stuck with losers." He is currently working for a internet company and is not being payed because his boss is having finance issues. In three months the company should be ok again and he'll make about 2 grand a month. He doesn't have a high school deploma because his mother pulled him out of school after 8th grade, but he is going to start working on getting his GED. He doesn't have a DL or car, since he can walk to everything. Mom hopes nothing is serious, but I just can't help myself. When I hear from him or see him I get a big grin on my face and just relax. This is the first guy I've been 100% me with and he still wants me. Now I've only known him for a month, so maybe it's only puppy love as some call it. Should mom be worried? Should I be more cautious? He hasn't tried anything and he loves hanging out.
