Mixed signals? Keeping expectations real.....
Can-Can Woman and I text a lot - in fact, I was working from home today, so we just went back and forth all day as I did what I had to do... it wasn't annoying, because it gave me needed breaks from the work I was doing.
And we made a date for the weekend after next to travel upstate and visit a town, and do some strolling in a museum - in other words, we planned an "all day" date....
...which signals to me that she wants to spend time together, and maybe make this into a relationship? Because these things are so tenuous; maybe at some point she'll just decide, "okay, this is as far as I want to go with this guy. I think he's a good guy, but in the back of my mind I keep the possibility that one day it may just be "look, you're a nice guy, but I'm not feeling it."
So I've just moderate my expectations, hope for the best, and if that day comes, I'll just say, "well, it was nice meeting you, and I had fun spending time with you. Good bye...."
And I'll be disappointed, but not too sad.
