I could really use some input on the following situation please. I've been trying to get a girl to come and meet me when I'm in her corner of the world next (still a long flight for her). In another lifetime we'd be in a LTR but because of my traveling and her job, we're stuck long-distance. I thought she was completely into me but she's consistently been against us meeting up. Mostly because of "what else afterwards". I say nothing else and let's just take what we can get and enjoy being together when we can but she says she doesn't think that's enough for her... I have told her we're not being exclusive which I know hasn't helped things relationship wise but I can only be honest. What do you think of the last email I sent? Should I break contact at this point and come back when I'm 100% indifferent or send another which says ~"contact me if you want to meet me in future and we'll see if I'm still available". Yes emotionally I can walk away at this point but I really don't want to and I do like this girl and more would love to see her in a couple weeks. ----start---- Hi (her name), Tough email for me to write and not one I would have expected to be writing. Top line is that I miss ya (her name) and it doesn't seem to be changing. Bottom line is that I thought a lot about what you said tonight and you're right we're at an impasse. My lifestyle is not gonna change in the near future and a "take-what-we-can-get" isn't going to work for you and it's all i can give ya. It was really disappointing when you'd say you couldn't or didn't want to meet with me and in this way. I can understand of course but for me I don't want a pragmatic decision anywhere near one related to my heart. Where I'm leading with this is that I don't want to be in a situation where we watch our feelings for each other slowly decay until the point where we're both indifferent and no longer writing. Or alternatively and perhaps worse where one of us has to tell the other they found someone else. The lingerie comment caught me a little off guard today, I was like "shit, maybe (her name)'s already found someone else cuz afterall we did say don't kiss and tell". Anyway, I still don't want to know so don't tell me either way I do wanna be your friend but I can't be your friend right now. I won't tell you the specifics of why because then I'll be talking about kissing every inch of your body and it'll ruin the somber mood of this email. This said I also don't wanna end this email in a somber way either so What I'm getting at is that for me it is time to take a break from (her name). I care abouts ya and that's not going to change, but I want some time to chill things down to friends again. I dunno how long that's going to take to be honest but I'll send you an inflamatory email when I'm ready. >< I hope this is making some sense to you too... ~Taf xoxo ----End---- The only response I got was a quick one that she read the email.
