Helpmesavethis Posted September 30, 2019 Share Posted September 30, 2019 Background... known this guy for 9 years. He was a former boss but we no longer work together. We keep in touch and would do lunch and things from time to time. He was married. Wife got ill and after 18 months she passed away in July. They have 2 children together. We went out a few times in a group setting, no big deal and had a good time. He went out with my friends and I a few weeks ago and wound up kissing me at the end of the night. The next day he kept saying he hoped he didn't ruin our friendship or make things awkward between us etc. I assured him no worries and let it go. We saw each other again this past weekend and well.... It became more. We were both drinking etc but he definitely wants to continue having more of a relationship with me than friendship. I adore this guy. He's a great person. I am attracted to him etc but I'm afraid it's too soon after his wife's passing to really become anything... He keeps telling me not to worry about it blah blah blah. I don't want to scare him off by harping on this. I want to let it go but either need reassuring it isn't too soon and is ok or someone to tell me to put the brakes on now and give him more time to cope with the death of his wife. I don't want to just be filling a void in his life temporarily etc. Help!!! Link to comment
