Remember how I had that master plan to tell Arash's mom that I'd be open to dating him?
That never happened.
I found out from Adi that Arash had already nixed the idea completely. He was never really sure how he felt and decided that giving it a go with me would just be bad news.
I switch between thinking we should try (aka makeout) / steer clear and stay best friends.
We still do absolutely everything together. For Halloween, I am Wilma he is Fred Flinstone. We plan parties, cook meals, grocery shop, and now we even workout together.
One night we were watching a movie when he starts in on how his ideal relationship would look.
Arash: "I'd like my own space. A girl with her own friends so I can hang with mine. I don't need her to be a part of every activity I do. I like to have space."
Elle: "You do realize when you get married, all friend groups get jumbled together? IE you and I have the same friends and it works out just fine. You'll do EVERYTHING together, much like we do right now. You don't get to dictate when and how you get space. Arash, every single thing we do together on a weekly basis is what married life will look like and you don't seem to mind it much with me."
Arash: "I love doing all of that with you, its different than it'd be with a girlfriend. I don't have to be in boyfriend mode with you."
Elle: "Arash, you have to be YOURSELF in a real relationship. No different modes. You get that, right?"
Arash: "IDK, I just like all of that stuff with you, I don't think I'd like it with someone else."
OOOOOOKAY Peter Pan, let's get our head straight, shall we?
I just can't even handle delving into the mind fuck that all is.
What are your thoughts? Do I make a move or do we let this one stay as it is?
