Thats how i work too. I have very little experience dating nd being in relationships but from what i understand, i hold on so as to obtain that closure too. like you said, till i know it is absolutely done. but i'm wondering, if that is more damaging then it is worth if the waiting is too long...i mean, how do you know if you are waiting too long? you know?
