@Sassyromantic Hi people. I am a Pisces woman and have had a connection with a Taurus man of similar age for several years (late 30s). Intially he asked a v simple favour of me which I had no problem doing but he came back shortly after with chocolates and a thankyou card which seemed totally over the top. He later started texting me out of the blue a while later ( must have got my number from our mutual friend) with flirty texts. We had lots of humorous texts back n forth which cracked me up regularly as we both have similar dry, sarcastic, imaginative senses of humour. He emigrated for a few years where there many emails back n forth, always long, funny replies..but at a certain point I realised it was always me initiating contact so I pulled back to protect myself as I had really fallen for him and he may never return home. He also lent me a couple of items while he was away when he became aware I was in need of them and has gone out significantly of his way to help me with car trouble etc several times when I have asked in the last couple of years. We have had several v personal conversations over the years where he has shared several of his deep hurts with family situations etc. He told me I am a great listener. He returned home eventually but was in a bad place for 2 or 3 years, which he seems to be coming out of. More recently he has been such a help to me with a particular project and has spent 2 or 3 hours during his busy work day to help me and ensure I am not shafted or bullied by people..his protectiveness is making me swoon. We have had some v funny banter in texts and some v long conversations lately while working on the project. I have noticed he regularly smiles in my company and seems to not want to end the conversation. I gave him a thankyou gift recently for helping me and he has since showered one other little gifts for no real reason- even making baked goods for me. He has never said anything directly to me that he is interested romantically ...but is highly complimentary of my character. .....I really like this guy on a v deep level and have for years but have always been afraid of rejection and never seem to realise when men are actually into me and not just being nice..plus I am v poor at flirting directly. He has been through an awful time emotionally for several years. We live in a small town which piles on the pressure. What should I do ? I really need to find out one way or other in the near future but don't want to blow it!
