So I'm a single gay woman and I got speaking to this older woman last week. I didn't think much to it at first, just having a nice chat.. But then the conversation between us suddenly became very intense which I have never really experienced before. Speaking everyday all day/night for a whole week. Telling each other how amazing,sweet etc one another are. We were so into each other that we decided to meet at the weekend. So, we met Sunday, I jumped into her car and we drove off.. then all of a sudden she started becoming very anxious and nervous/shy. I knew she was somewhat shy as she had told me before but I told her I would try and ease the situation. Anyway, we got so far (we were meant to go to hers) and she asked if we could turn back round and take me home.. So I did and she apologised alot to me saying that she felt so overwhelmed and didn't realise we would get on so well.. And that she doesn't think she was ready for the next step yet. So my feelings are quite strong for her, I can't seem to get her out of my head. I have told her I like her etc but at the same time I am giving her space. But I don't know what to do now? Will she ever be ready? Or is she just telling me nicely it's not going to work?
