Holland, I am so guilty of logging in and out without always talking to someone. Partly it is that I hope he doesn't notice I am online so much (really don't want him to think I live on-line, and don't think it is necessary to explain to him about being on every time I nurse, kwim?) Besides, sometimes I just don't really want to talk to anyone, but that doesn't mean I am not interested or whatever.
I think 4 days is really good to go between some conversations. At least he isn't wating weeks or something. I really think this pace sets a nice slow get to know you time that could be really healthy.
I was noticing that about myself this week. I start dating someone and it becomes exciting. So then I want to get more involved NOW. I want more calls, more IM"S more e-mails....I don't want the very sweet hug, I want a KISS, NOW (or, well, you know
Did I mention he smells incredible
) !!!! But, sitting back and looking at things the way they are, no I don't want to rush is. This is very nice the way it is. I didn't want something serious right away, and I am lucky enough to have found someone that wanted to take his time too....if I had found someone that wanted to rush head long into things I probably would have too, and seriously that isn't what I need right now. I need to be able to sit back and analyze things. To make sure I am staying healthy etc, kwim?
Anyway, maybe it is a blessing that he is taking his time. ENjoy it, and enjoy the time it gives you with your son and with your new friend, and the time it gives you to explore other options if you would like
And especially the time it gives you to just be YOU with YOU!!!
