Well, all the little interpersonal alarms have been switched back into their accustomed position. We have in fact talked things out; I wasn’t entirely wrong, but I wasn’t entirely right. Things are largely back to normal. One difference being a renewed confidence in open communication, in spite of my romantic inexperience (p.s. the poll has been unhidden, now that it wouldn’t render itself moot) The other difference is that I’ve discovered I have a lot of issues to work out before I could really enter into a relationship anyway. Some of those will hopefully be worked out here, over time, to prepare the way for future opportunities.
