..

The beginnings of a new relationship are so strange, are-they-not? Strange and somewhat tedious. All that senseless dithering, speculating about the hidden meanings behind actions and intentions behind words. It's an appealing miasma, but a miasma it be: this process of discovering, assessing, evaluating another human being. On so many levels the calculations start though completely unbidden. Even the most cynical of us wonder if 'this-one-time' will be an exception, and in that wondering drive ourselves mad. The most unnerving thing, I think, of this (inevitable) process is the tedious wait. The wait till he calls. The wait till he says what you think he should be saying. The wait while you wonder if what you're inferring in is actual fact what he is saying. The wait while you figure out if you're reading the signals right. The wait while you figure out if this is what you want after all...

Not all relationships work this way. If there's so much waiting, where's the understanding in the relationship?

I can totally relate to this, but would also suggest that you take the reins! End the waiting-- life is too short for too much of it.

yes, it's all so fascinating isn't it? Wish every tale had a happy ending :)

Hahah! Yeah true, but that's where the charm of new romance is, right? The playfulness, the entire sense of... tease! But at the same time it's very important not to let it turn into a kind of power play.. because no one wins at that :)

Good luck ustad :P

I can so totally relate to it, but sometimes it takes a little courage to stand up for what you mean by those signals, and if you don't have it then this is where happily ever after turns into memories that would keep hurting you all life long....
