I think this is about as good an answer as one can give to that question. Sometimes people are willing to make different choices to move a relationship closer. Other times it's best to leave boundaries where they are, especially if trying to move them in the past ended poorly.

Thanks for your thoughts; they definitely helped my thought process!

It's a shame there's no straightforward, silver bullet answer to these kinds of questions. Relationships, even good ones, are hard.
