I just don't want to get in the middle of anything between this young woman and another person. I'm sorry, but the other day I got the distinct impression that any effort to get with this young woman would amount to just that. In better times than we have now, I would say that there's plenty of fish in the sea, and that I find no need to do something like that. My last post touched upon the idea that any attempt to work stuff like that out during this time would prove inappropriate and too difficult to accomplish.
But, again, I emphasize how honored I feel that people want me to try and get something going with her. In my memory, which to me feels not too long ago, people definitely DID NOT see me as someone who might hit it off with someone like her. In fact, people tended to see me as more of a threat to someone like her than anything else. Again, thanks to all the well wishers, I wish I felt as if I could follow through on your wishes, if that indeed proves to be your desire. But, one should remember, this young woman is an adult as well, and her wishes need honoring too.
