B-locks and I (finally) had our lunch date. When I heard my phone ping with a text an hour later, I just assumed it was him. It wasn’t. It was you-know-who. “Whatcha Doing?” I didn’t know how to respond or if I even should. No matter how much I want it otherwise, if he is conflicted about taking next steps with me, then we are back to friends – nothing more or less. I decided for honesty – “I just got home from a lunch date.” That was over an hour ago. He hasn’t responded.
