Here is a video of a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly, to accompany the description in the previous post. I am trying to find a video or animation of the actual process within the cocoon, but no luck yet.
Last night, I went out to dinner and came to an agreement with sh/cm. To create mutuality, we will be "dating" until November, and I will actively seek to date/be dating other people. I fully intend to do this and even updated my online dating profile today. He, on the other hand, will be keeping the door open with his ex during this time, basically dating her too as I see it, even though she lives in England.
I feel okay about doing this for the limited time of a few months, so that we can continue to get to know each other and see how things develop.
Today we went to a yummy Thai lunch - continuing to appreciate how uncommonly easy it is to be/talk with him - and then to the movie, Bridesmaids. If you need a good laugh, I highly recommend it.
