So, here's the latest. ..
I have been on about nine dates with a man. He is very nice, but rather "boring". I know he is trying and I keep hoping I will start to have feelings for him...but I'm just not there.
He is very busy and I only hear from him once a week and then just to ask me out. We go out and have fun, but he is not much of a conversationalist and if I'm not talking he doesn't pick up the conversation thread...ugh!
I don't want to lead him on and have anybody get hurt. Sometimes dating really is hard!
I have heard from a couple of other men who I might have more of a connection with. I am trying to keep my chin up. Here's the run down...one is a naval commander of a air craft carrier, one is a real estate agent and one is an executive. The commander and the executive are fairly close, but one of us would have to move and the real estate agent is a bit farther away. He is thinking about moving.
So, here I sit thinking and thinking and thinking...did I mentioned dating is really hard?
Oh and then there is the one dd guy who can't seem to leave me alone, even though he spends a lot of time criticizing me. Apparently to want to have my needs met is selfish. Oh, and I'm Catholic, but he thinks he can talk me out of that, and I won't tell him which town I live in, so he wants my area code because that would be respectful. I told him trust and respect are different things and I'm not going to do something that makes me feel unsafe. Guess what? He didn't like that.
I have told him when I talk to him he doesn't make me feel good and when he said he feels the same way, that was my cue to tell him that clearly we were not a good match and God must have other plans for us. He deleted me from the chat feature...and then amazingly he was back the next day...go figure. At some level, I am laughing at that guy...we are SO incredibly not meant for each other.
Anyway, I keep trying.
