Ryan probably would have ran right into that circle and tried to protect me as much as he could but who knows what would have happened if he did or if you had tried to do that. You are not a fighter, Kevin, and you are not Ryan. Which is perfectly ok. If I wanted to date someone like Ryan, I would be dating Ryan and not be engaged to you.

He just needs time to adjust and realize that this is not some flexible decision."
Being single doesn't make you weak, it means that you are strong enough to be on your own; Being alone could be a good thing, because there is no drama involved in your life, no pain, and free to do what ever you want. Life is too short to be chasing those who aren't even worth fighting for, you are worth more than that.
