Ok here is an update, I will try to post more info on each event later on.
So she has been seeing her friend for over 3 months now. She has taken well to it and enjoys his company 1-2 times a week, with her going to his place where his roommate knows, or him coming here. She is very open with him and to him, offen on hikes they will cut off the trail for a nice quicky.
It is not uncommon for her to spend the night at his place or him at ours.
I will post more soon and will see you all in the chat room.
