Jesse85 Posted April 20, 2019 Share Posted April 20, 2019 I’m 33 and a full time single dad of two girls. I’ve been divorced for a little over 7 years and been single going on 5 five years now. There’s a woman I’ve know for about 6-7 years. She’s a great person and a single mom to her son who attends the same school as my oldest does so our kids know each other. She has pretty much all the qualities I look for in a woman. We’ve talked on and off throughout the years and had an attraction for each other before but never went any further then kissing on a date. About a little over a year ago we had started talking again and seemed like something was building up towards a relationship. Unfortunately around that same time my kids lost their mom in a car accident. That woman started to be present more in mine and my kids life just because she cared for me and my kids and was there for us in that time of need. My kids never knew about me and her seeing each other or talking about relationship. They only knew her as a friend. Two months after that she said she didn’t have those type of feelings towards me and wanted to be a friend. We didn’t talk as much after that but she still always messaged me at least once or twice a month. Over the last few months she’s messaged me more and calls me more and we’ll still talk. She’ll suggest now and then to get together and have our kids get together as well since they know each other and get along great and has bought them Christmas gifts and little things here and there. She’ll message me every week and doesn’t go more then two or three days without texting me. Mainly tells me good morning and hope I have a good day and we’ll text throughout the day about work and how her days goes and I do to when she text me. I get the gut feeling like she is attracted to me but also think she’s being really friendly. Now to be honest I’m not the best when reading signals from women especially when they seem like mixed signals. Now I asked her a while back if she just sees me as friend or something more cause I felt like I was getting signals like she sees me as more then a friend. It caught her off guard and she seemed really shy about telling me so I didn’t push it and said she’ll tell me later. I still haven’t gotten an answer. I honestly am still attracted to her and she’s different from anyone else I’ve ever met which draws my attraction to her. I want to ask her that question again to see if I am just a friend or something else. I feel if she doesn’t give me an answer again sees then I’ll take it as I’m only a friend. And even if she does see me as only a friend I would rather not stay as friends just cause it wouldn’t work with one friend being attracted to the other. This has been bugging me and not sure what to do and if I should even ask her again. Has anyone ever gone through something like this? Any advice on this whole situation? Link to comment
