Just to be clear - these are pre-emptive questions.
I am a chess player. I see things 3-5 moves ahead of where I am.
This gets me in trouble sometimes :P
Yes, there are people I'm interested in, but I haven't figured out if I'm interested in them as friends or more. At this time - I'm content to enjoy the friendships as they are - and see where things go.
If they go down path A - we'll continue to be good friends.
If they go down path B - I'll be having those ^^^ conversations.
But in the meantime - I'm just chillaxing
