I'm going to skip out all the gory details and just say: steve and I are going to counselling. And I'm very pleased about it. That was my ultimatum and he's agreed.
On a different grain, I got an sms from Richard yesterday:
Hi La, how you doing! Have been meaning to get in touch with you for a while now. Am sorry for being a prick. Not because I think we should be together, but because I was unreasonably harsh to a friend...can't debate it now, but will be in touch. Rich.
I spent the whole day over-analysing this little gem of a text message. Does he mean he wanted us to be together? Or that he never wanted to be? Or is he protecting himself, or making me feel better? I realised later that he meant that he meant that he doesn't think we should be toegther. I am actually fine with this little statement. However, he's made contact! So I cannot help feeling happy about that?
From the pro's: WHAT DOES HIS SMS MEAN REALLY? Please be honest, it's totally cool.
