Altho it's still in the early stages so who knows. I dated a guy last summer, didn't really appreciate how nice he was to me, thought he must be crazy or desperate to be so ga-ga for me so I let him go. A few months later (this was September) he called asking if we could be friends, said he knew he must not have been the right boyfriend for me but he remembered being able to make me laugh and he considered me a good friend and wondered if I'd be willing to be friends. (whoa run on sentence) Like a brat, I said, ok so long as you understand we're not getting back together. So a few months went by, just emailing back and forth friendship. I dated another guy in the interim who was an absolute bastard to me (I posted about that before, we just split about 6 weeks ago). Sometime early this year, I was feeling more comfortable in the friendship with this ex-boyfriend-now-friend of mine. I've never been friends with an ex before so at first I was skeptical it would work. We started actually hanging out together a few times and it was nice. He's very supportive, let's me talk about any subject without making fun or trying to "fix" it. I feel I can be me around him and he accepts me just as that. Anyway, we've been hanging out more and more frequently, the last couple times, I've noticed more romantic feelings cropping up. But he's been such a tremendous friend to me, something I need desperately right now, I don't want to jeopardize that. So I'm just taking it snail's pace. I'll let y'all know if anything changes. *hugs* ~Carol
