Hello my beloved nerds, in the vein of relationship-esque threads, I figured I'd go ahead and ask your advice on something. Background - I had a former relationship that was pretty serious and lasted a while, but we were both young and so it kinda fell apart eventually, as you might expect. It's a whole big situation, I've talked about it a little before but I won't go into it all right now, that part of it isn't important at the moment. Anyway, despite it ending before, we've gotten back in touch over the summer (she came to me first) and it got me feeling like I should ask if she'd like to try again, we're both in better places with our lives, we're both more mature, and all the good things we saw in each other are still there too, blah blah, it just feels right to me. I'd like a fresh start, no bullshit about the past, just try to see where it goes, if anything is there and if it could work. So, I got up the courage and just asked her, told her how I'd like to just start over with no pressure. All she said was "maybe." That was a week ago. I have no idea how to take that, and I have no idea how to handle it from there. I don't want to be pushy, I just figured I'll give her the space she needs to think about it, if that's what the issue is, but I don't want to just totally leave it alone if that's not the right thing either. So, I'm really hurting for some advice here, what in the world am I supposed to do now, if there is anything to do other than just wait to see if she gets back to me on it? I'll be honest, I was happy she didn't say no, but I don't totally have my hopes all the way up, I know it could go either way. Anyway guys, thanks for any wisdom you might be able to share, and thanks for reading, tis much appreciated.
