(quote) Lina-796057 said: One should look before one leaps. However, he who hesitates, loses. But, "the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all."
Sometimes, you can be as careful as humanly possible, and still, you get burnt or you wear out all the romance through your delay. Sometimes, you can rush into something--and it be the best of times or the worst of times. That's the dickens of it--you just never know. But, one thing is for sure, you will never know "what could be" unless you take a shot at it or stab at it. Er, I mean, unless you try.
It may be a shady character, or it may be a man of character standing in the shade.
Very good Lina. Perhaps the man just needs the warmth of the sun.
