Learned tonight that a friend has a kind-of new boyfriend. Kind-of because he feels it more strongly than her, and because she'll be leaving the area in two months, which would make it hard for him to keep in touch.
I was glad for her, and sorry about the keeping-in-touch part, until she mentioned that he's a Muslim.
And now I'm a little scared for her. Glad about the idea of a relationship -- she's had a tough time -- but -- scared.
