For whatever their reasons, people can be slow to trust. Maybe they've been burned, worked over, pushed under, beaten or broken. Or maybe you're just coming on too strong. Best friends aren't made in a day, but they all begin somewhere, and that just may be today. Our lives amount to the sum of the connections we've made in them, for what is a ripple but the outward thrust of one water molecule upon another, upon another, upon another...So make the first move. Don't worry, his bark is worse than his bite.
