Thanks for your feedback. Upon reflection and seeking advice from those wiser than myself, I am pulling right back No attempt to contact until Easter then a call to say 'Happy Easter' She's probably scared and needs to get her courage back. I've apologised and can't do no more if she won't contact me which I doubt very much she will do at this stage. I am assuming an email or call NOT saying, "Shove off and die" means I have not been completely rejected but with you 5 types it's impossible to tell!

But if a five could say, "Well, we get scared but we come around" this would help!

Anyway, thanks.

P.S Sorry about the doubled up title. I don't know what happened there.

> Jedinovice,

> I totally feel for you, I'm a 7w6 who's been worried about the behaviour of my 5w6 boyfriend. And I don't understand the lack of reaction from 5s.

> I can imagine that she feels that you're overwhelming her. You responded, post-incident, the correct way, I imagine. What I'd do is wait for a few days. If she still doesn't reply, tell her that you respect her space, but her behaviour is hurting you, and you want to be happy with her. If she still doesn't reply, I honestly don't know what to say.

> My problem with my 5w6 lover is better now. I hope the same for you. My advice probably isn't as good as what you'd get from a 5 who's here, keep that in mind. What wing do you think she has, a 4 or a 6 wing? That may make all of the difference too, I once read here that a 5's wing determines the nature of their social behaviour, as the 5 point doesn't equip much for that.

> Wishing you well,
> Josie
