Why had he left? Why was he not ready for a relationship? This, after being the one pursuing her! Sure, it had only been a month. But his actions showed he was into her. Unless he was a great actor.

Little did she know how scared he was — having fallen in love with her.

    Love can be scary… And to commit to the one we love scarier!
    Loved your take on the prompt. Very nicely done πŸ™‚

      Welcome here Pixie and thanks! For some people, their feelings can be quite scary — plus the fear of possibly being rejected or abandoned makes them end it before they can be hurt! πŸ™‚

    Guess, first love?
    But anyway, initially the men are always chicken…no one wants to commit.

      Surprisingly, not necessarily! I know of people who have feared rejection and consequently to avoid getting hurt themselves, would prefer to end things! Go figure… 😐

    Maybe he was not sure of himself…………..

      True that Kalpana…sometimes I think people need to figure themselves out before they can commit…

      Haha…seen it happen Mi. 😐 I personally reckon it’s fear of being hurt that underlies the fear of falling in love…

      And thanks… πŸ™‚

      Thanks Vishal…sadly, this happens to a lot of people. Fear of being hurt results in preferring to end things before even trying. 😐

    Love happens…If it’s planned or conditional then it’s not love at all…

      Thanks Shellymona! I agree…and sometimes, if one party is not ready even if it is out of fear, well, the time is not right. You have to let the universe take its course with this…

      Thanks Richa! Yeah…the fear of being hurt sometimes is so much that we think we are better off ending things!

      Totally agree Suzy…comes from a fear of being hurt I suppose. Thanks!

      Thanks Shilpa…it is sad and unfortunately, does happen more often than we’d like to think. I think our fear of getting hurt probably comes in the way
