Day 5

Schrodinger's girlfriend

One thing I'm pretty good at is reading people. It's a bit of a natural skill that has served me well professionally for quite a while. As part of my job I have to teach or train people occasionally, and motivate them. Working out others motivations has always come relatively easily to me, but there is a catch. I have a blind spot, that spot is potential interest in me as a partner. I'm blind to it, which is frustrating, especially with confidence issues as mentioned forever ago (in real time, post wise we're in single figures).

So, there is a girl we flirt a lot, have done for a long time. She'll message me and just chat for hours. Ask my opinion on what dress I like best, send me pics from her new pole dancing class. Every time something seems like going somewhere though it doesn't. It's like she gets cold feet, but then will begin the cycle again within a week or two and I'm completely clueless.

    Well it sounds like she is keeping your interest anyway . . . . .

    Oh no doubt about that at all. I'm very interested, we have a lot in common, similar sense of humour, I like her very much. However is that reciprocated or am I just being encouraged because I provide attention she enjoys. Because I'm thinking it's either that or commitment issues (she hasn't had the best of luck with men).

    Could be a combination of both, maybe each cycle will bring you closer. If she is worth it and you are prepared to put up with it . . . .
    Softly, slowly, catches monkey.
