K, so I talked to Tim on my lunch break today and cleared up a few things about our “relationship”.
First of all, I have to say that I detest conversations that start with “we need to talk” or “can I ask you a question?”…I wish you could skip that part and just launch right into the actual talk. But somehow topics like “where you stand in a relationship” seem like they require some kind of warning before they begin. Like enough time to light the fuse and get a safe distance away before detonation.
BUT I DIGRESS…the point is that I began the phone conversation with a “can I ask you something?”…which translates to “This is serious. Get ready.” He got quiet, and then I asked if we were allowed to see other people. For some reason, I was SURE he would say no. I mean, we’ve been seeing each other a bit, and it’s been soooo good I kinda figured…(this might sound really bad but…) I thought he might want to keep me to himself. BUT NO. He seemed really relieved, and kinda laughed actually, and then said:
“It’s probably too early for us to be exclusive at this point. No, I’m totally cool if you want to see other people.”
Okay. That’s good right? We’re taking things slow, which is what I wanted.
I don’t know why I feel so weird about this… I wish we had had more time to talk it out, but since I was on my break I had to go. Now I just feel crappy. :(
