Ahh yessaa , that one.
Welllllll, l've certainly tried but that's on the go slow plan to damn it, ouch.

Although l sorta don't mind too much, sorta, because my brains fly out the window once that starts , and l would prefer it to be really special too.

But they were in the house separated no same room or any love though for 5 yrs or so before she moved out finally, just trying to stick it for the 2 kids.

Well , since she's been out she's finding her feet and enrolled in courses and started hobbies and has her kids part time , then l come along.

She wants us and me , but she also wants to go really slow . See each other every week or two, few calls , she seems quite happy at that pace so far but in between we hardly message at all. She says she always hated messaging and would rather just call then she's happy for us to call only once or twice a week.
We get along really well and talk for hours when we do call or in person and she says she's never talked like this , but then later she's happy to just go off back to all her stuff.
And doesn't seem to fussed if even a week goes by until we talk again.

She says she's just too buried in all her course stuff and new things she's only just started up and then having the kids and just wants to build up slowly and that's all she has time to squeeze in right now anyway.

She's 48. l get pretty frustrated because really l'm ready to rock and l'm never had anyone wanting to move at this pace before.
Any time l doubt her she has a beautiful way of just putting any worries or doubts out of my mind about how she feels , but then she; seems quite happy to just ho back to this once or twice a week thing.

TBH , l dunno wtf to do with it.
On one hand l feel absolutely blessed having found her and to be given this chance again in life but on the other l just dunno if l can trust it and all this go slow stuff or the reasons for it.

Maybe she's just not feeling enough , maybe we go on like this for a year or longer even then she drops out anyway .
Not sure .

Any thoughts. ?
She doesn't like messages, and the time to meet the time to do phones all depend on her schedule?
it's unfair and drives me crazy, hehe.......

I hope she won't just use u as a backbone to build up her own confidence ,

but if she is really special, then u need to find a way to keep this one,
and u also have your free will to talk to others.
(u both r not into any commitment yet,
so it is okay for both to talk to others.)

just my 2cents.

It's a bit soon. It just is. She had a helluva time getting unattached and still has kids to share with him, so she's still probably feeling pressure from that. You haven't know each other long enough to be making big steps, even if she wasn't just divorced and has kids.

I say enjoy your time with her but put no pressure on her to hurry. You could both regret it. She IS enjoying her freedom. Jeez, being tied down for years and raising kids is downright oppressive. She wants to be free and she may get to liking it enough not to couple up again. She doesn't want anyone else pulling on her. So just be your fun self and enjoy this for awhile and see how things are going in six months to a year. Good luck.

Yea, I've got thoughts... first, be careful! You two are in different places. You're ready for something real, ready to dive head first into the deep end. She's just dipping her toe to see how it feels. She's still married. The chances of her going all-in with the first guy she dates, before the D is even final, are low, low, low. I'm not saying it's a flat zero, but I think her reticence to have more than occasional contact or to engage in a physical relationship is indicative, and you should not allow enthusiasm to turn into blind optimism.

Most people need a transitional relationship coming off of a divorce. The ones who don't will be primarily driven by emotion, overtaken by feelings. She is measured and calculating. Having a guy who is more into her than she is to him is probably meeting her need for reassurance, but that doesn't translate to depth.

I think you need to become less available, act less invested, and see if she will step it up and pursue you for a change. Don't allow yourself to get too far ahead of her. Easier said than done, I realize, but I'd hate to see you broken hearted just so she can test the water a bit.

u don't sound quite like capricorn, hehe, must be influenced by your rising sign a lot, I bet.
but Capricorn and leo actually a match. I have a friend works great and said it was the best thing ever happened.

the thing is, Capricorn and leo r both leadership, both wants to be the leader. they r hard to compromise. both wants the other to listen to them.

Just a little report for anyone interested.
But in short , it's a no go l'm afraid.
She has stuff , just stuff , it's too much.
lt's all stemming from the ex and men she's met since.
Her and ex were living separately same house 5yrs but both been meeting other people 4 years and living their own lives separately also.

So she's actually sorta been dating you'd call it 5yrs now all up.
She's got it in her head no man out there want a serious relationship because none have and this is on top of yrs with ex and big drama there too.
And that no matter what l do , l'm the same as the rest and anything l do or show or say is all just bullshyt.
So it's been showing more and more that this stuffs the real reason why she won't invest into us and there's self sabotaging going on too, she just doesn't trust it or me or men and it'll probably take some guy yrs to get past it with her.

l just can't take that kinda gamble right now or spend years dealing with more head issues.
Soooo, unfortunately l've decided l can't go there.

Like it's weird , at least she's given me a chance it doesn't sound like anyone else she's , well not really dated as such but met, has got even that.

So l don't even know how she's got this idea she can't trust any man, not even me, or they don't want a relationship but it's a total pain in the ass to deal with.

Sorry to hear that. Sucks.

But better to find out she is damaged goods before you are fully invested. Itís disappointing to be sure, but it beats the hell out of a failed relationship.

Me? I would lay it out that you are in fact ready and tell her to ever call you if she changes her mind and never ever call her again. But honestly, if she comes back it sounds like this chick will give you nothing but drama.

Bullet dodged.
