Hey guys, due to the fact that most people in the situation are minors, no real names (except mine) and no real ages. Okay so theres this guy, Whose named Dusty (see the rule above ^^^^^^^^^) Dusty and I are close friends. We hang out and mess around. But My friend Gail is involved with his best friend Alex. And Gail thinks that me and Dusty should go together. Thats fine with me, and him, but I'm kind of worried. Dusty is a little older than me I'm within a two year age range, and Dusty has some issues. Now, He was brutaly abused as a young child (I know, I witnessed it) so thats the true root of this problem, but he does drink on occastion, He has done drugs in the past, and he smokes. Now before you judge him please hear me out, Dusty has a heart of solid gold, but he has made some bad choices. I've never seen him high, or drunk, or anything, as he is so careful around me. I know, I KNOW, Dusty would never hurt me. I know. But my family is very... my dad refers to Dusty as the "little delinquent" and such. Dusty gets into fights offten, because he's so protective of his female friends and his little sister. And he gets in fights defending us. So. You can see my delima. Help?
