My hunch is the last two weekends you went on dates. I could be wrong but have seen our chats be less, and focus elsewhere. This woman will get attentive, caring a great conversationalist guy. As things progress if you feel she wouldn’t accept you doing our hobby platonically with me. Or if you want to start sharing your hobby with her, just tell me, I will understand I don’t want you to feel uncomfortable to have to tell me. You have been a really cool friend over the last several months, you have been supportive, and I want to support you back wherever I can. This weekend I watched one of my hobby friends have a complete blindsided breakup by his girlfriend, devesting to him but all of us around him. They were a couple I looked up to and watched them believe there is still hope for beautiful connections. So now that they are not together anymore, maybe you will become that person I can say, you see they have it, he found it, it is still possible, and look forward to that day for me.
Hey, your hunch was right. I can’t believe you figured it out. She is really cool and I like her a lot and easy to talk to. Lives out in LA area but doesn’t do our hobby. Maybe I’ll be able to teach her one day. I was going to tell you when we do our hobby next. I told her I went to do our hobby with you last Sunday but will have to see how things go. Hopefully, we can still do our hobby together. That sucks about your friend. I hate hearing that stuff happening. I hope he is ok. You will find it one day for sure when you can move on.
