Things didn’t work out then because I wasn’t in the right place emotionally, and I hadn’t carved out any real sense of identity for myself. And although we lost touch after graduation, I never stopped caring about her. Now, here we are nearly eight years later and we’ve become intimate again. On Tuesday she expressed developing feelings for me, and I wasn’t able to return the sentiment. Not because I don’t think of her as somebody I would pursue a relationship with, but because I’ve become comfortable being alone and I’m not sure I want a companion right now. I’m just worried that by passing on what could be a good thing for both of us that there may not be another opportunity in the future. It’s a selfish way to look at it, I guess. I just want to get past this uncertainty.
