I'm always asking myself, what's the catch? I can't allow myself to believe the best about anything. I was cheated on in a relationship twice before, and now whenever I make an effort to meet someone new, I find myself full of doubt and skepticism. The man I find myself currently dating does indeed have a pretty large catch to deal with - he's a secret lion shifter, specifically. However, his honesty with me, and his willingness to trust me, has given me new hope that maybe trusting isn't so dangerous after all.
