Have Relationship Questions? Ask a Counselor for Answers ASAP
I recently started dating a girl. I knew her in the past as an acquaintance and i know she liked me then but i was in a relationship. It's been years since we've seen eachother and I have been single for about 2yrs. Recently our paths crossed and we have started dating, however it is difficult because our work schedules clash horribly. We don't get much time to talk or see eachother but can text while at work when time allows. She says she's really into me but if feels like she was making more effort to at the very beginning than she is now to see me. It's been a short time, only about 3 weeks, since we started dating. What is bothering me is that when there are times when we could spend at least a small amount time together she doesn't seem to want to try to, but when we talk though texting it still seems like she likes me. She told me she was in a few bad relationships in the past and that she wants to make changes in her life. She used to spend a lot of time in the bars and partying. She says she really wants to make it work with me because she feels being with me will help her do that. I know I'm a different sort of guy than she's used to and i did talk to her about what she's feeling because i got a vibe like she wasn't sure about us, but she said she really wants this but is nervous. that was about a week and a half ago. But i'm still feeling like things are "iffy". Am i just jumping to conclusions? or need to back off a little and be more patient? I just can't help feeling like she saying one thing but feeling another or that she is unsure in what she wants but is afraid to tell me that. An added note, I did get a chance to hang out with her for a couple hours before she had to go to work a couple days ago. she said we'd have time to talk and hang out but when i was there she spent more time talking with her sister and mom and we maybe got about 15 min to be alnoe and talk, i was very frustrated about that.
