It didn’t happen. The date that I’d hoped would be the start of a wonderful relationship wasn’t. The man I fell for has told me that he is still attracted to me but “not ready for a relationship now.” Where have I heard that before? I’m disappointed, but I’m glad it ended sooner rather than later, or I would have been hurt so much more. I feel rather foolish for expressing my strong feelings so strongly. Still, I’ve got to be honest, although diplomatic, in expressing my feelings and everything else. It’s the only way to start communicating honestly. He used plenty of hyperbole (a “good line”) in talking to me. I don’t understand these things at all. I know that I’m tired of going through life alone, and I really hope that changes soon.
