Hyperskeptic, I think you're doing so so well, and I see no need to try and figure everything out now in order to prepare for any sort of outcome - stay present. You both obviously appreciate and respect each other and are able to acknowledge your feelings for each other without needing to make that mean something or to make it have to go anywhere in particular. You're enjoying each other's company and deepening your friendship and becoming more intimate emotionally. Metis trusts you. It sounds beautiful to me, and I think that your calm and thoughtful approach sounds absolutely perfect and appropriate for all of you.
The world opens up... when you do.
Oh, oh, can't you see? Love is the drug for me. ~Bryan Ferry
"Love is that condition in which another person's happiness is essential to your own." ~Robert Heinlein
