Received an e-mail, an unexpected e-mail.
I had to disappoint somebody in a big way. Somebody who put a lot on the line to ask me a question.
It was a question I was surprised that she asked, though in retrospect, I probably shouldn't have been.
I am disturbed by this.
In an attempt to be clear: I am not by any means ready to get involved with anyone on any serious level. I doubt that I will be for some time to come, probably years. I have a lot of stuff to work through yet.
That doesn't mean that I can't be friends, or date, or just do fun things together. But if I don't want to get serious, it's nothing personal.
