Like I say, this is kind of hypothetical for reasons I won't get into as it's a long story and hard to properly explain. Basically, though "just friends," we both see each other as potential long term mates, but current life circumstances do not allow us to be together. We have spent a good deal of time with one another though, including a five day backpacking trip just the two of us. I think this alone allowed us to know one another better than we know most of our long term friends.
What are your thoughts?
