When a person leaves one relationship they will carry some feelings from it for awhile.
Just take it very slow. There is no way to know early in the relationship. Each relationship we have is a risk and there just aren't any guarantees.
Put it this way, by worrying and not trying to understand this woman you may miss out on a very wonderful and fulfilling relationship.
If in doubt, communicate with her.
It's time to sit down and talk! None of us can answer for your partner. It's best to get the goods from the horse's mouth. This person could be depressed, have a lot on their mind, or they may like to make the first move. You are only going to find out if you ask. Good luck Marcy Above all else, you stop. It may be difficult, but respect your partner's decision. You used the term "always", there may be more issues deep down. Try to communicate, neither one of you can stay in this situation forever. Best wishes!
