- One commenter says she will let him go because she wanted him to find happiness – even if that happiness does not include her
"What if he falls for someone else?"
"The moment I let him explore things outside our own little world I knew right there and then, a situation like that or even more may follow. And if you'd ask me if I'm scared of the thought, no, I was way beyond being scared.
"But I love him freely and locking him up just for myself is complete selfishness. And I don't want that. The world has so much to offer and if I let him grab the opportunities, he'll get what he truly deserves. I know, he'll do best and I want him to understand that I won't pull him away from his dreams.
"I want him to grow independent. We need to grow apart sometimes. And if letting him grow means walking in temptations, then I'll take the risk.
"After all, a relationship is about trust. And I trust the love he has for me. I trust that it will always be me over any temptations."
What if he falls for someone else?
This is probably the hardest question one has to answer. Netizens share different takes and varied replies on this.
Roxanne Legarto says:
"I trust him once that it will always be me over any temptations but suddenly, everything has changed. He took the risk of leaving me just to be with all those temptations."
Kyla Schulman says:
"Set him free if he's meant for you he will come back to you no matter what. Love is to be shared and cherish not prison."
Bernadette Siao says:
"And if one day he finds that our love isn't enough to keep us together anymore, I'll let him go. 'Cause although it breaks me into a million pieces, know that his happiness is what I've always wanted for him, even if that happiness doesn't include me."
Sharmaine Lina says:
"Outside world may seem so scary but if that person is truly in love with you, he'll be more afraid to lose you."
