He has made it obvious to me that he doesn't have the same feelings ... "yet." He has also admitted that he wasn't prepared to meet someone he was so compatible with and has told me that he likes me very much.
What's so hard about this? He answered your question...you just don't like the answer...you want to read into everything he does to SEE that he somehow really wants what you want...he never did!
He wanted someone to HANG OUT with...you are IT and he likes you.
YOU wanted a LTR...he is NOT it...
No need to cut him out of your life..just keep your emotions in order...don't say you CAN'T...you CAN you just don't WANT to...
Enjoy the friendship...that's all it is! he whole reason you're in love with him is because you finally have a man's attention who enjoys your company without having to have sex.
to cathysaint - thank-you SO much! so far, you are the ONLY person who has expressed exactly how i feel!
So you just wanted validation and encouragement to do the CHICK thing and ruin what IS there and try to FORCE what YOU want? GEESH!
Women, like you, SAY you want men to be honest and not PLAY you.... YOU are gonna offer up sex to LURE him, he will probably go for it because you will LIE about the intent...then you'll come on here crying that HE used YOU for sex!
If the guy wanted any more from you than friendship he would have made a MOVE by now... on second thought....maybe you SHOULD move on...you aren't mature enough emotionally to deal with a relationship...even a friendship.
