Believe me, I know. I jumped so fast one time because I felt the need. I did not do my homework and I landed quite abruptly. It took me a good while to untangle myself and it was also quite painful.
A well placed 'no' can be a blessing in disguise. It can stop you from going exactly where you do not need to be and with exactly who you should not be with. While I will admit that sometimes being in the wrong place with the wrong person can be fun, it usually doesn't end well in the long run.
Anyway, I am ready for a honest-to-goodness 'yes'. One that will be in the right place with the right person. Will I be able to tell the difference? I hope so. But if not, it will make a great blog post.
