Back By Two People's Demand

I am too lazy to write a post about C.M. Here, however, for your perusal is an email she sent me over the weekend. From it you should be able to figure out how things are proceeding without too much trouble..."provenance," I believe archaeologists (and the French, it you believe etymologists) call it.

You're a really impressive guy, Big Tuna. The last thing I would want is to set up expectations that I cannot ultimately meet. If you want to have a conversation about whatever is going on between us, I think that is a fine idea. I would probably end up telling you that I think the feelings are relatively mutual. When I said I like you "quite a bit," it was more of my way of saying I like you a whole heck of a lot. The problem is that liking someone this much while trying to figure out an engagement is pretty scary for me. For the time being, I don't feel right acting upon it so I guess if that means putting things on hold, then that's probably what we should do. If you want to talk about anything further that's cool with me. You'll still remain the reason I get excited about coming to work!

Back by two people's demand and one person's longing. Or perhaps that's too strong a word...

I believe this means, "Hey, I'm flattered by the attraction but too scared to leave the other dude completely. I will totally cheat, but I don't want it to have been my idea, so if you're willing to take the blame if I go back to the other dude, or comfortable dating a cheater, by all means grab me, kiss me, and I'll front like it was your idea the whole time."

Sincerely,
