"The fact that you are asking these questions gives more evidence that 1) she's not where you are emotionally 2) you understand that....so align your actions with that. That does not mean, more attention because you have to keep her, rush the…"

"I don't want you to lose what you have by smothering it. Listen to your gut here. It doesn't seem to be blinded by your attachment or emotions. You are more invested. You have more invested. That is not an attractive quality. A month is…"

I typically dress in slacks and a nice button down shirt or polo shirt for leadership meetings at work or for the monthly meetings held by the county affiliation for the party. Would this be fine, or should I at least wear a jacket; or maybe even a suit? Any advice is greatly…See More
