I was messaging a colleague of mine, who I think might be interested in a job listing that I came across. I wrote:
Not that you're necessarily looking for a change, but this sounds like something you could be interested in
I want to convey that he might not necessarily be looking for a change, but this could be interesting to him. Somehow the construction of my sentence seems weird, and not completely correct to me. Of course I could easily write it a different way, but can anyone suggest why this sounds wrong (or right?)?
Or in other words, is there any way to convey the same using that sentence structure (Not that...., but...)?
