I enjoy reading your blog very much.
I hope you don't mind me emailing you, but I thought you might be able to give me some advice:
In 2010, for 2 months I dated a Christian woman. We spent a lot of time together and things seemed good between us. Then she broke things off suddenly after telling me she was enjoying the single life too much and didn't need a boyfriend in her life.
Anyway, we went our separate ways amicably and I wished her all the success in the future etc. We had no contact with each other again until this week. I decided to email her to see how things were with her. She replied 2 days later -
1. Thanking me for my email
2. Asking 2 questions how things were with me and the work I'm involved with.
3. And she ended with the words "keep in touch".
I replied to her email a day later and in my email also asked her a question about her own work and what she was doing in it. (We both work in the same type of work).
I was expecting a reply maybe tomorrow or even two days time. But she replied 2 hours later with a fairly long email about her work and its challenges and her plans for the summer. She wished me good luck with my job hunting & said if she hears any job prospects she will let me know.
There were no questions in this email from her.
So, in short, I'm confused. One one one hand, she emailed me back very quickly. On the other hand, she didn't ask me any questions and & wished me good luck with my job hunting. My over analytical mind suggests she is not really leaving the door open for further conversation?
What do you think?
In case I didn't say it, thanks for reading! Here is my response:
Thanks for contacting me. She might be interested in you again, she might not. Unless you call her up and ask her if she wants to go out for a date, you'll be stuck in this lala land for months.
If you want her in your life even as a friend, tell her that it's fine if she just wants to be friends, but you are still interested.
Either you wrote to me before under a different pen name, or this is a very common problem.
Thanks for reading! Please leave a comment!
