Given: the following quote:
Am I looking for a father for my son? I guess in a sense yes. The person that I fall with will know me as a package deal and fall in love with my son and me.
The questions (I know, I am speaking of nuances here, but these shades of the meaning are of special ineterst here):
What do you feel is the most precise meaning of the second sentence?
1. The person
I will fall in love with will have to accept my child and love him as well as me.
2. The person
with whom I would have a long-term relationship will have to accept my child and love him as well as me.
3. The person
I may meet by chance will have to accept my child and love him as well as me.
What do the words "in a sense" in the first sentence refer to?
1. In a sense,
I am looking.
A father, in a sense.
I am not asking about what reading is grammatically acceptable, but what is your perception of this quote, as a native speaker.
