I say, I do say dear fellow, you most certain intrigue me.
This is not to say I like you, for I cannot honestly say for certain if I presently do or not, however I can say this for certain, that, for whatever you might think we have together, we do not. Not yet, that is.
Our relationship began far too early, before either of us could have gotten a chance to know the other, which I do regret, for I feel we have only just met. As such, for the time being, I must declare this relationship, that of a romantic nature, must be put on hold until such a time is that we do better know each other.
And so, I ask, if you would be quite alright if, for the moment, we could start over again, however, this time, just as friends.
If you need time to recover or consider my proposition, that's okay. We both need time, and that's all I'm asking for.
