This is in follow-up to my previous thread from a month back. http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=2749855 *BTW sorry for the long post* Basically what happened is I continued to talk to her off-and-on in September and she asked if I wanted to take Ballroom Dancing lessons with her. I always wanted a formal instruction on how the whole thing works, and plus it was like a chance to get to see her more. After I accepted, she was all "I would so love to be your dancing partner" and was pretty excited about the whole thing. So, two Fridays ago, our first night in class, we made it a point to go out after class for dinner, and I believe she called it a date. She touched me, my hands, arms, and sat next to me for dessert. She even said that she liked me because I didn't once try to look at her chest that night. (In the previous thread I was contemplating on when to kiss her for the first time. I was planning on doing it this night.) After dinner, it was late, we took a drive and then ended up talking in the parking lot from where we left dance class for about 2 hours! I finally kissed her, and she kissed back. It was a very sweet experience . Next week, after our 2nd class, we go out to dinner again at a more casual place, and she grabs my hand a few times, calls me "honey" to get my attention (she also calles me honey, sweetie, and babe in emails), and we have great conversation. We then went to see a cover band at a club with a few people she knows from work (the band was nice, but I just couldn't socialize with the people she knew). She went up to the floor to dance with a few other girls. Anyway, afterwards, we left, and while she was driving back to my house to drop me off (I was car-less last week) she tells me that she may have severe depression, as her doctor said. She pretty much opened up to me at that point about what goes on her head, but she's only human...I have had some of the thoughts that she had during her rough times. She's a fairly fast girl and I think she may stress out too easily. At the end of that night, I told her to park on the street when she was dropping me off, and we just chatted for a while, I kissed her again and in the midst she said "you're sweet", and I just tried to make the moment last . After I got out of her car, I remembered I had her Drivers License in my pocket. I gave it to her through her window, and gave her another kiss. The next morning, she sends me a text message saying "Hey I just wana thank u 4 listening last nite. Sumtimes thats all it takes 2make me feel better. If I didn't feel sick 2day, then I would feel happy." This made me feel good that I was there last night for her. Now, I'm just trying to figure out what is going on. I know she's a busy woman, she has to take care of her mom who had a stroke several months ago and I think she has a pretty social life, and she might not have any time for a relationship. I've texted her on Sunday about how she was feeling, with no response, and I sent her an email Tuesday, with no response. I tend to get a little attached when I start to feel things, but I know I shouldn't get too needy or desperate. So I will just wait for her to contact me. Am I coming on too strong? I know many people would tell me to steer clear of this drama and let her do her own thing on her own time, but I am very curious what could come out of this. I really do enjoy being around her. Also, what would be the best way for bringing up what could be happening between us? Or should I even bring it up at all?
