I'm not sure what's going on, but any advice or suggestions you may have, I'm open to anything at this point.
A few years ago, I met this girl. I didn't really pay that much attention to her until a mutual friend bought us closer together and I actually got to know her as an individual.
I can't pinpoint when it happened, but somehow, in the space between then and now, something has changed the dynamic of my relationship with her. The way I can best describe it is that I can read her as easily as an open book. I know how she'll react to a situation, the motives behind her actions, when she's lying, when's she's truthful, I know when her emotions are real, and when she's hiding them. The thing that scares me the most is that I can tell if a situation will put her in danger, and it feels like it's my job to accompany her. Not only to protect her or guide her, thought that feels to be some part of it, but mainly just to help her stay afloat through everything life throws her way. And, as cliché as that might sound, it's the truth.
My point is that this seems like more than your average emotional bond. It feels like there's something that ties me to her, and I have no idea what it is or why it exists. It scares me, because sometimes it feels so strong that I know I'd follow her anywhere, no matter where she went. And when I'm close to her, there's a warmth in my chest. Not like a fire, but more similar to the heat that comes off of it.
I have no idea what this could be. The only conclusion I could come to is that perhaps I am some form of guardian to her, or something similar. If anybody has any idea what this is, please let me know.
