When I said it was precious I was referring to it being a rare thing to hear an eighteen year old speak that way about a girl. When I was eighteen the guys my age were…let’s see…how to put this?…dumbasses. (I’m sorry, but that truly was the kindest word I could find.) And, though I don’t know you personally, you seem like a very nice person. And can’t imagine the “little lady” saying no to go out with you. You are level-headed and thoughtful. I hope it all works out with Sam.
Sorry to hear about all the problems you’re having with your parents. It’s nice that you found a friend to be with you through it all.
