Yes, that is truth. Sometime love can hurt. But the good feelings of it will almost outweight the bad.
I am glad you had someone who cared enough to call you and talk with you, and help you through it. He is a good man also. And I am glad that you and your friend worked things out.
Selfishly, I know, I am also glad that this means you aren't leaving.
I have more to say, but not here. Later.
