I've fallen in like with someone.
Someone from another state, working in our office temporarily until our new venture gets off the ground, managing the launch. She's everything I like in a person, and we work together well and have a great rapport - talking with her is usually the highlight of my work day. I dread the day she leaves to go kick ass in another town, and one of my main goals is to try and cultivate a friendship that will last beyond these few months. Problem is, we're all so busy at work that there's very little time to have a personal chat. We discuss stuff and exchange emails on a daily basis, but it's all work-related.
We've even talked about hanging out for a beer after work, but it's just so hard to coordinate given both our schedules and of course my family responsibilities. I've even talked to my wife about it, hard though it was to find the right way to say it. But like a true life partner, my wife knew where I was coming from and is supportive of my desire to keep a very special potential friend such as this. Hard to say how much longer I have. I'm trying not to force anything, but I know I only have so much time. She's been around about 5 months so far (and I've felt this way since day 1) and will probably be around another 5 months. Just want her to remember me and keep in touch after she's gone. When you're dowwwnnnn.... and trouubbbbleeed.... and you NEEEEED a .ok nvmind
