But how do you bring that talk up without sounding like one?
I know he still checks the site we met on, although I deactivated my profile a few weeks ago when I got sick of dating in general, and that makes me wonder if he isn’t as into this as I am.

Physical intimacy is such a big part of knowing whether you have chemistry with someone, though, it
Well, as far as where the two of you stand, I think you already know the answer to that, right? You’re
