However, the idea of him starting something up with someone new has got me a bit nervous, though Im not sure why.
Mentally and Emotionally I feel okay about it, but I've been tight chested all evening.
Has anyone else felt this? Totally fine with a partner's pre-established relationships but uneasy about new ones?
(It could also be due to the fact that we've just established our feelings for one another and are finally becoming comfortable with the idea that 'yes, this is real, and yes this is actually happening after all these years' and maybe I want to hold onto that for a little bit?
Its still throwing me off though. I told him I was nervous, but that I wanted him to have fun and wished him luck.)
Um, yeah-too funny. Maca's "first date" was Friday as well. Yes, I was tense. I slept with my phone in my hand all night (had reserved them a hotel room). I was up at 8 am (was supposed to pick him up there as I kept the car).
"She" is a friend of mine. I had no lack of trust or confidence as far as her knowing "her place" or "my place" or WHATEVER. I also have no concern as far as Maca goes-but yes-it was a change and it was new and it was a little emotional.
In fact because it's a "change" even if it's a good change, it's still stressful.
You are definately not alone in that feeling.
