He isn't quite ready for MC yet, but he said that he wants to find an IC for himself soon. I'm still trying to convince him to do the EN Questionnaire.

As far as the joking goes - we have kept it light and about OP, not each other. I guess having some humor about it makes it a little less serious all the time.

Last night, he mentioned letting things be for a while ... no pressure on the M. This is what he feels that he needs to see if we can make a go of it. Which I completely understand. We've enjoyed each others company for the last week - which has been the first of that in a while. Becoming friends again is probably a really good start, wouldn't you say?
