Yeah.You are not getting one right are you?
No to worry I had to go through an apology tour when I started on this forum.
I seemed to offend everyone
Oh of course.Depending ofc who the other person is. Not every one of them works out or indeed should be started up. That's were discernment comes in
That's a beautiful story you sound really happy. I envy you in a way but am sure all our times will come, it's just about being patient I guessOh of course.
But friendships... you get to find out a lot more facts if you don't go all "scuba" from the get-go
The adorable Mrs KP and I were best mates for years before we decided to give it a bash.
I don't associate with many outside of farming and that was our spark, both looking at managing dairy farms despite the age gap.
(I KO'd her first, for the record)
And here we are, living the dream
Patience is well rewarded, usually.That's a beautiful story you sound really happy. I envy you in a way but am sure all our times will come, it's just about being patient I guess
With risk comes the chance of reward...... or failure The truth is just being friends can be harder than being on ones own if you think that you want a chance of relationship but for some reason you think you will not meet with her expectations or if you think you are being prejudged and discounted unfairly because of a current or previous partner, ....seems to be the story of my lifePatience is well rewarded, usually.
I think of what could have been, and pleased that I didn't; when you know, you know alright!
The tricky bit is, when you've been friends for so long - actually getting the courage up to discuss the idea of going further, as you have a lot at risk.
We've all been put in the friend zone, right from the startI know this is a predominantly romantic sub-forum. Not looking for romance here, but simply for some friendly human interaction.
I recently got very interested in different breeds (cattle and sheep), and now have this weird (for a city dweller) idea of attending a livestock show / event, to see them live. So far have my eyes on the Winter Stock Festival (Peterborough). Problem is, I am suffering from a severe impostor syndrome - never had any experience with animals apart from a couple of pet cows and goats in my childhood. And pretty much no hands-on farming experience since the age of 16.
If anyone knowledgeable is planning to attend and is feeling bored or lonely, let me know - I can come along and keep you entertained with remarkably stupid questions / buy you a drink / admire your expertise. Gender blind, of course.
