You know, it's interesting...I actually don't want to live with someone right now, I like living alone. But I'd like to know that there's a possibility of it with someone, and my partner right now even says he doesn't think he could ever live with someone he's in a relationship with. He says it would be cool to have separate apartments in the same building or separate houses on the same street, but not living together.
I feel like what you said that I quoted above should be possible. I feel like we should be able to do that kind of thing, but it's a huge mental hurdle to get over when you're the one who isn't happy with your "status" with the other person...how would you do it? Just not see each other for a while and then decide to start seeing each other again but taking it very slowly?
