Drafting this conversation was like drafting a letter, no- it was like drafting the romance novel I’ve been writing forever… I’ve got the main idea of what I want to say and how I want things to go, but somehow putting the proverbial pen to paper is proving to be a difficult task.
I want to be honest, but I don’t want to hurt his feelings or bruise his ego. I don’t want to come off as someone who just wants to go around sleeping around with just anybody, I don’t want to lose him as a friend. Then I thought to myself, as painful as it might be, isn’t it better to lose him and feel that sadness for a little while, then to lose myself and live a sad and unfulfilling life.
This is what I’ve got so far:
Hey, so remember last night when you skilfully brought up the subject of me dating? We kind of made a joke out of it laughed it off and moved on, but I want to make something clear. I know we’re not dating, just sleeping together and hanging out, which is okay, but I want to date now 😊 not you don’t worry you can breathe easily lol. I also want to have more sex! Shocker right?😂 We’re still young after all, and I know I’m unlikely to be able to have sex everyday like I’d like to, but I don’t think that a few times a week or at least once a week, is too much to ask for.
For the record, I’m not sleeping with anyone other than you, but with dating, opportunities are likely to arise at some point and I don’t want to wait until that time comes and then feel like I need to come to you and have this talk so I’m doing it now. I still want to see you on Thursday, if you still want to meet up. We can keep doing what we’re doing too if you want, but I’ll understand if you don’t want to. As I’ve always said, I just hope we can stay friends 😊
How does it sound?
