To cut the story short. We were both in the process of getting to know each other, but I wasn't certain how I felt about the idea of being relationship and whether I liked them romantically.
I suppose part of the reason is that they are extremely different to what I thought I'd in a partner. In the sense that they like lots of things that I'm not so keen on (I know it sounds extremely shallow... judgement based on hobbies/interests. That's got to be worse than judging someone based on their physical appearances.)
So ultimately we decided it was better that we should stick as friends, and I could easily see myself becoming extremely good friends with this person.
But since we made that decision. I still find myself thinking: Does those hobbies really matter that much?
And occasionally wondering if we both made the right choice...
Am I just suffering withdrawal from my friend?
Would you pay less for a humanities degree?
