Space - re previous posting:
Thank You all.

I gave the man "space" as you said. I just sent him get well sms's. Gave him the name of good flu meds and he got it at the pharmacy. When he phoned me one nite late I said let's not chat long you are sick you need rest. I'm did not push for a next date.

And this morning when I woke up I got a sms where the entire screen was full of kisses and he phoned later to say he's feeling so much better and a little bit of space every now and then is good but not to much.

So I just want to thank you. I have found that relaxing and sitting back DID work where usually I'd get paranoid and clingy.

Thanking you so much for the good advise although at the time I thought you were being a bit nasty.

Well done Koeks ! Its interesting that its often when our advice seems nasty ( i.e. isn't exactly what the person is wanting to hear ) that it works best ! So, trying less hard can sometimes win more.
