I myself am actively working toward maintaining a relaxed approach to dating the Artist
(so Seie you are not the only one trying to chill out and not over think). Things between he and I are so rich and bring a wealth of happiness! I am quite smitten with him and love the way he treats me and how we interact together ~ everything is just so effortless!
I do still feel my insecurities creep up on occasion especially since we are not to the point of being exclusive (and I think we are both still dating other people), but in taking things slow I really feel like I'm allowing myself the opportunity to build a deep friendship....... in fact, possibly growing a best friend, which will be at the base of anything we become beyond that.
In dating the Artist
I have come to see that I truly want my future husband/boyfriend to be my best friend
. I did not even think this was possible because I already have a male best friend but I am realizing there is room in my life for an even deeper friendship than that of myself and my childhood friend and it appear the Artist is trying to build toward that.
So we have been dating since November and still no political conversations but I'm still smitten...... boy does it feel good to know my feelings are not (yet) clouded by the physical. We will see where it leads but overall I am happy in the moment!
I am still conversing with the Agent and 2ndHusband an occasional dinner or lunch here or there but only because I care for them too! I know they are not right for me but I do still care and I like the attention, LOL!
