Three months ago would be a good place to start. I suggest reading that first if you haven’t yet already.
It had been a month and a half since RockDaddy first mentioned wanting to talk – but not quite yet. I hadn’t want to push. He had said he wasn’t quite ready. But, I was starting to think maybe he was waiting for a bit of a push. Maybe I should push, gently. I was building up my nerve and decided I would bring it up next time we were together.
He beat me to it.
You’ve been really patient. Far more patient than I deserve. I still want to have that talk. It’s coming soon. Very soon.
He was going to be out of town again for a long weekend. He casually mentioned being “away this weekend” on Wednesday night. The lack of elaboration struck me as suspicious. People don’t usually say they’re going out of town and not say where. There was an awkward pause.
Where are you going?
That seems… random.
Hmm… I had not abandoned the thought of the other woman being a scenario but it had moved further into the background in my mind. But this seems familiar. It seems like NYC. He wants to talk. Soon. And is going out of town this weekend. Maybe I was right about the other woman and maybe he had planned to call things off last time, didn’t, but intends to this time.
Ok. I can wait another week for the Talk.
To be continued.
