Dating or not Dating, That is the Question

P and I have entered into that slippery part of a relationship between friendship and dating. We’ve sort of been doing this balancing act, carrying on as usual, even though we both know it’s a little strained. My little cousin asked him if we went together and he says, “Ask your cousin.” When people ask me if we go together, I say, “Not yet,” or “We’re just friends.”

Somehow, though, those answers are becoming more and more inadequate. I can tell that P really likes me, and he’s a real hard to find kind of guy, but I still don’t want to jump into dating him, possibly ruining our friendship, and have nothing to show for it. Then again, I don’t want to be his buddy, the one he shares every aspect of his other relationships with while wondering what might have been.

Dear readers, please answer this question for me: What have you done in this situation, when you were in that slippery spot? Did you go for it or did you sit back and pretend like everything was the same? How did it turn out for you? Please help your fellow almost grown-up. Peace Love and Hair grease. Reader the footer.

Stay tuned for another misadventure of this almost grown woman…until the next time, keep it true, no matter how many feelings truth hurts!
