I wasn’t expecting to have to have this conversation this soon but circumstances are once again beyond my control.
Little Red is moving away… Only 20 miles away but it is to somewhere that she wants to settle. My intention was always to move farther away but in the opposite direction to be closer to my friends and family.
I think I am starting to have feelings for her. Not strong, but strong enough to wonder about the potential for a future relationship between us and the willingness to work on it if that feeling is mutual.
I know that I’m going to have to broach the subject over our dinner date to see how she feels. If she feels the same way then I can focus on settling in the area and finding work here. If not, then I can focus on moving away and accept that I have nothing more than a blossoming friendship and make the most of the time we have while I am here.
This is a very different situation from Miss X in many ways and I will be happy either way however she feels. I am attracted to her but I’m conscious that this is very early days in a fledgling friendship that could go anywhere and either way.
I am concerned only with the potential futures right now. I don’t feel I want a full-on relationship but do want to understand whether there is that possibility for us. For now, I would just like to continue seeing her and take it one day at a time.
Should I basically tell her just that?
