“I don’t want to put anyone in a position where they feel like I'm only theirs, only to be hurt in the end,” he shared, adding that he really doesn’t want to hurt her.

“I know that in the past I’ve hurt people and said things that I didn't mean to make them happy in the moment. So, now I'm just more so looking at the future, making sure I'm not damaging them. What if Hailey ends up being the girl I’m gonna marry, right? If I rush into anything, if I damage her, then it’s always gonna be damaged.”
