Things are Moving

Was starting to feel apprehensive about seeing MM in 5 weeks. First time in 7 months. Pulled back a bit. Did not send any e-mails over weekend which I always do. Sent an e-mail expressing state of relationship, in a serious tones with dashes of levity. Then waited to hear from him. Hoped he would call and started thinking he was backing off. Then he called to tell me his agenda on the job. Takes him away for periods of time. It is the nature of his job. That he would be away and be in touch next week. He loved my e-mail. Asked if he wanted me to book separate rooms when we see each other. Haven't gotten physical yet. He said that was not what he had in mind, but we would talk next week. We are still definitely in sync, but this took me by surprise and I told him I thought he wanted separate rooms. Anyway, he said we would talk when we see each other, more about the whole relationship and how to proceed from there. I told him I didn't want to crash and burn and were we being realistic if we wanted to stay in each other's lives. We both want the same things for each other. Question is, can it be done? I am always optimistic, but need to be real about it. He is an old friend (over 30 years). We are both married.
