Follow your heart on the Matt front. You only get one life, you might get hurt, but then you can say you tried and you'll probably have fun along the way. He obviously cares for you, and I think you can maintain any kind of relationship with him that you want (this IS the 21st century) but do keep your options open while you're waiting to find out what he's going to do. YOu may meet someone along they way, you may not, but a least you didn't put all your eggs in one basket. I think life should be lived a little "dangerously," follow your heart, allow yourself to be vulnerable, but do it smart. Like you would an investment portfolio: it's fine to take a little risk, hell a lot of risk, just make sure your investments are diversified. wink, wink! :) And most of all HAVE FUN GIRL!
