Exactly about cross country relationship drifts into buddy area

Dear Amy: I got divorced about a 12 months ago after two decades. Soon after the breakup I began communicating with a girl that has attended my senior school. We’ve met quite a few times, we’ve experienced coffee and lunch together, plus some activities that are outdoor.

We’ve had a extremely fun time each and every time we’ve met, regardless if it is only for a short while. (I need certainly to drive 60 minutes from my city to hers.)

She warned me personally that she wasn’t in search of a relationship. She’s separated from her spouse (although not divorced) for just two years.

I had guaranteed her I could be respectful and never make an effort to make the most or make an effort to do something for her, and I told her so against her will, but after a few months, I realized I had fallen.

She replied that also before she wasn’t seeking a relationship, also to just remain once we had been, but that “maybe, after a seed that’s been planted – who understands so what can develop? though she knew just what a good individual I had been, she had told me”

That has been five or 6 months ago. Things stayed exactly the same; I had that little hope, but throughout the month that is last the interaction between us has diminished.
