pulled heartstrings

so the ad-man and i have been chatting on IM for hours practically every day. he is a joy to talk to and there is no denying that we get along fabulously.

the problem is that i'm the sort who tends to get emotionally attached when i talk to someone more. and admittedly, as i'm finding out more and more of the ad-man's quirks, his past and his beliefs, the more i like him and the more i'm getting emotionally attached.

i suppose this wouldn't really be a problem if i knew that he felt the same way. but i can't tell interest... what does it look like? it can seem so much like just good friendship.

i'm not even saying that i'm sure that he's not interested. i mean at the moment we're still in the whole getting-to-know-you stage (though with far less initiation of face to face meeting ups than i would like) and he seems to be taking it really slow. in fact he mentioned that he's really liking being single. especially since he's been in relationships for 9 out of the last 10 years. and he admits that sometimes he's been told that he unknowingly gives out mixed signals.

i guess maybe that's my answer? maybe i've just been too caught up and reading him wrong. maybe i need to find a new guy to get over him.

but i can't help it... especially after our IM conversation on sunday night. it was at that moment i knew my heartstrings were being pulled and i found myself really wanting it to work out 'coz of the true possibility i see which i don't believe i've actually seen since many many years ago... but what's the point in all that when maybe he doesn't even like me back?

Me too. Esp if I tell them more about myself.

but what's the point in all that when maybe he doesn't even like me back?

isn't it terrifying to think about telling someone you have mushy feelings for them and not knowing what they'll respond with???

oh man! for sure! half the time i worry that the person is gonna turn around and tell me... "you? YOU??" that would be mortifying! haha!
