He was trying to look at it as for the best but I knew that it was a stressful thing for him as he was very passionate about his career path and putting himself through school at the same time.
I realized that I could not expect him to be in a place where he would be focused on pursuing dating someone if he’s worried about his livelihood and I was prepared for things not to escalate and to give him the space he needed.
Later that night, Kelly asks her daughter who Bobby was.
Her daughter, blushing bright red now, explains that he’s “just a friend”.

If you break up tomorrow, would you end the relationship with no regrets about your physical involvement? On the other hand, no one should say "forgive me" when they really mean "accept my faults and don't expect me to change."
