So I started dating this girl about three weeks ago. She's very fun and cute, and I enjoy spending time with her, though the relationship is obviously fairly young and significant bonds haven't really been formed yet.
Last week she spent about four days out of town visiting friends from college. She had fun and whatnot, and I was glad she got to see her old buddies.
Then last night, she says she's going back to the same town for the weekend, only this time on a business trip. I don't know a WHOLE lot about her job, but from what she's told me it's not the kind of job you'd go on a business trip for (she works in an airport). Throw in the fact that this business trip takes place on a weekend in her old college town, and my "...wha?" flags went up.
It's entirely possible I'm just being paranoid. Working life in Japan is MUCH rougher than it is in the states, with unpaid overtime being a norm and whatnot, so it's not out of the realm of possibility that she'd be sent on a business trip.
But at the same time, if she has a boyfriend back in her college town she didn't mention to me, I want to know about it so I can end this before I get too attached.
What I want to know is, how can I ask her something like that without seeming like a clingy freak? We've only been going out for a few weeks, and I probably AM being a clingy freak, but if I don't find out one way or the other, it'll probably drive me mad.
