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.


  1. I'd better go see Bridesmaids. I really could use a good laugh right about now.

    I'm glad the door is still open with sh/cm. :)

  2. Maybe I'm way out of line, and I don't know the back story but why would you want to be with a guy who doesn't seem to know what he wants. He's seems to be treating you like the second choice. Again I don't know the whole story, but you seem like a really nice person. Too nice for stuff like that.

  3. Thanks for your comments and support. Did you see that movie, M, and if so what did you think?
    NTR - Appreciate your caring. :) He's actually a bit over the top with his affectionate expressions, missing me, doing super nice things for me. Also talks about the future with me and things we will do together, etc. But that almost makes it confusing, harder to keep my own emotional distance and keep it in dating mode. We actually are starting a conversation about that today. .
