FIRST post, so I’m expecting a lot from this =) Thanks in advance! First off this may be a pretty basic relationship question rather than a typical long-distance one. Background info: Met a girl through friends and we got along GREAT from the bat. She was visiting her friends/family from out of state and on the second day she asks to go to the zoo, and we had a fantastic time together, on the third day she asks if I want to see a movie before she leaves. The movie didn’t go through because the following day her sister gets real sick (cancer). We talk via email since my phone’s not operational until I get a new one (damn rain). Not long later she eventually goes back to where she came from, unfortunately never meeting again, but we’ve been chatting ever since via email. At first the emails were very long and fairly flirtatious/humorous and on a daily routine – that was 4 weeks ago. After about 2 weeks the emails cut down both in size and consistency (2-3 days instead of everyday) from both sides, me and her, yet the content is still there, meaning we’re still hitting it off really well. Not long ago I bought a new phone and have that as another means of communication, but don’t feel comfortable calling mainly because we’ve been relying on the emails and don’t know how or if I can introduce that. We do have each other’s number, however. Question 1: Realistically am I in any decent position to pursue her? I would if I could see some possibility; otherwise I’m no weirdo to be unreasonably chasing someone who lives way too far. I’m feeling 50/50 in limbo. Question 2: I stated this might be a basic relationship question because I’m also wondering if she’s into me still. I’ve admitted I’ve lost some attraction because we can’t meet and perhaps her too, hence the shortening down of the emails. So given the situation, that she’s far away, we’ve only been emailing, is there a way I can tell if she’s still interested? OK thanks all!
