I would never enter a relationship with a person that I just like.
I guess we view it differently.
Here is how I view it
>Neutral (I know she exists) >somewhat like (noticed this person) >Like (on radar, not doing anything >Like alot (might ask out on a date) >In love with (this is were I would enter a relationship) >Madly in love with (oh shit oh shit) >Fall out of love, relationship either goes to hell or I start loving her. > Love her, a different type of love than when I was in love.
I doubt you actually love her yet because your first instinct was about yourself and how to protect your fragile emotions. If you loved her you'd be thinking about what you could do for her and how you could make her life better by being in it instead of just worrying about your own hide. So nothing to worry about yet, especially since the more you worry about yourself over her the more likely it is you're going to mess it all up and break up anyway.
Not everybody enters a relationship when in love. True, deep, painful and terrifying love comes from experiencing life with somebody and then coming to realise that you love who they are, without any context such as what they do for you, or how they make you feel.
Real love grows over time and in many cases, it dies. But unless you are willing to put their happiness before yours because you care THAT much about them, and if they notice this, then you are in a true loving relationship.
Yes OP, the thought of hurt is terribly frightening. But make sure that you aren't feeling this way because you, as an individual, feel incomplete. What i mean by that, is first and foremost, be happy in yourself as one entity.
