Following up on my last blog entry, I thought I’d give you all a little update on how things are going with my “friend” and I. First, thank you to those who left comments on my prior post. They were beautifully written and you both made very valid points.
After much thought, I decided to give it a chance. We are going to “see what develops.” But, yes, we will be going niiiiiiice and slooooooow.
Currently, we are simply talking on the phone more (pretty much everyday or every other day) to get more familiar with each other. Sure there is flirting thrown in there, but I want to make sure we don’t ruin the friendship we already have built.
I have yet to have a more serious conversation with him about how exactly we’re going to take this, but I plan on letting him know that we both have to come from the same frame of mind, such as:
- If we see things going sour in the relationship, let’s stop it before it gets worse, so we don’t hate each other to the point where we don’t want to talk to each other ever again. Maintaining our friendship is No. 1.
- Let’s not make this a “hook up” just for our curiosity. If we are really going to see what develops, let’s take it serious. Let’s see if we are relationship material.
- We should be open-minded. I’m sure we’ve both changed a lot over the years that we’ve known each other. So, as we become more familiar with our lives, let’s keep our minds open and communicate and be honest with one another.
