I came out of a 19 year marriage 10 months ago after my wife went off with another guy. I wasn't really expecting to get into any kind of serious relationship just yet and was quite looking forward to a bit of time being a proper single guy hanging out with mates, dancing with pretty girls at gigs and maybe even occasionally going a little further...
But about a month ago I met this absolutely fantastic woman. I love almost everything about her and she seems to feel the same way about me
we have so much in common and so much chemistry it's ridiculous.
But even though we've only been together a short while she's already dropping not unsubtle hints about being together long term, maybe even living together soon.
I'm not really sure how to deal with this. I don't really feel ready for it at all but I am worried that I've led her along somehow. I don't want to hurt her or lose her as a friend but I feel that I'm in out of my depth and I don't know how to backtrack gently.
I'm also not completely sure this isn't what I really want. Maybe I'm just scared after my marriage went so horribly wrong.... maybe I'm just disappointed I didn't get to 'play the field'...
Any suggestions for a confused bloke? Cheers!
