We are just talking not dating
You would do best to look at this in concrete, black-and-white terms: He says he doesn’t want an exclusive long distance relationship with you. If you’re OK with it for now, while in the meantime exploring other options, then great … And so they waste weeks, months, years (and in some cases, a decade or two) trying to force the relationship to change.
Our afternoon of fun turned into a night out and me, my friend, J, and his friend bar-hopped, talked, laughed, danced, and played pool until the wee hours.Anything else he says afterwards is just to soften the emotional impact of the news. But make no mistake about it: He wants everything that’s happening right now and nothing more … Things are the way he wants them, and he unambiguously does not want anything to be different.Unfortunately, most women allow his “reason” to spark a glimmer of hope that it could work out if only one thing were different. If you’re happy with how things are now, then stay with it.I know it’s not what you want to hear, but I’m saying it because that’s my opinion, and giving my honest feedback is what I do…Well I firmly believed this for a while but now I’m gonna have to say that’s not always the case.
