I've been attempting to practice acceptance, both of my interest and her lack of.
I'm noticing the most difficult part is when I want to show affection, I then feel guilty, for wanting to show some, for the implications that it could mean. Which is more ego.
Also, my emotional connection seems to desire a phsyical expression. Not unlike what I consider Steve wrote about of poly lifestyle. Which is where everything begins. Wanting someone to have both an emotional physical connection with.
Then feeling unworthy despite all my attempts to 'show' by my 'actions'.
