I scoured websters, merriams, google, about everywhere for the definition of “awhile”. Everywhere I looked “awhile” was defined as “a short time”. I also looked up “a little”. I found “a little” to be defined as “small amount, size or degree”.
Am I being a pain in the the ass? Is she trying to compromise? Shouldn’t I compromise as well? I have told her many times it’s a two-way street. I feel I owe it to her to try regardless of whether I want to do it or not. Maybe I am the anchor dragging her down. Maybe I am the crazy one she is worried about.
Short, a little – they are both relative. I am looking at it from her side. I have to do that and figure out how I can give “a short time” if that is what she wants. I just don’t know how to stay away because I gravitate towards her. I naturally look for her without knowing what I am doing. She is what I want to see and hear.
