lisamill, i'm still not sure that your information and sdl's are mutually exclusive. my questions are not about the truth of what you know, but more how you define things.
1. what do you mean by commitment? wouldn't a commitment be something conclusive and binding, such as he IS the bachelor? but you say that he is not. so what sort of commitment do you mean? do you interpret their having made an offer as having made a commitment to him?Originally Posted by lisamill36;3661095;
4. you suggest that you know a bit about what others have been offered to be TB. was reid's offer in line with those? moreover, might they interpret his counter-offer (so to speak) as "reluctance"? meaning, he's hesitating (refusing) at the current terms, but there are terms he would meet.
i hope you receive this in the honest search for understanding in which i intend it. sometimes coming to an understanding in the english language is like playing a piano while wearing boxing gloves
