I posted here on Aug 24 (“So, is he interested?).
Yes, he starts to appear interested. We’ve never kissed yet, but the hugging and touching affectionately looks promising. So does the fact that I have called him several times just to say I was bored, and he has jumped in the car and driven the 45 minutes to my house, just to hang around or take me to dinner or to drinks.
He played piano for me (he’s classically trained). We’re spending hours on the phone, or chatting.
BUT — for several reasons, I know we’ll never be a proper couple.
So I was thinking I should just simply tell him what I feel, next time.
He will probably say he doesn’t feel the same and he just likes me as a person.
I will die of a broken heart for a while, yes, but I need to KNOW. Pretending we’re friendy-friends is killing me.
I have never declared myself to a man. I am terrified. But I think sincerity is the grown-up choice here.
