Little update, we are getting together for the first time in weeks, the 3 of us for dinner at our place, and some movie. Things are moving slowly but surely and hopefully this all works out in the end. I am tryng to let this flow naturally. While we have had individual dates each week...dinner, movies, communication and snuggling. Its been nice.
We have had a lot of opening up emotionally and talking. Not what I am particularily strong at, at the best of times. But I try. Opening up is something I fear and need. I love getting closer emotionally, but as the perenial "friend", I am always worried it will head in that dreaded direction. When I was single, being the "friend" was sometimes a curse.
