Well I am so ready for a child but don't want to get my hopes up to scared for failing we have been together for so long
babies grow up into children and then into young adults. it's not all fun and games and dress up. it's vomit, sleeplessness, stress, guilt, pressure and HUGE commitment! how at 19 could you be certain that you're ready for all of that when you've likely not even experienced all of it in any capacity that really matters?
how long is "so long"? do you live on your own somewhere that you're ready to settle into and raise a child? do you have an education/a job? you were still considered a child a little over a year ago. the fact that you think you're ready screams loud and clear that you're WAY not!
i hope, for your sake, that you're not pregnant. not yet.
Love is not an emotion, it's a decision.
