So I met this wonderful guy, and we hit it off right away - meaning we had a mutual attraction. He thought I was years younger than him, but I had to tell him I was older than him because he seemed so set on having a relationship with someone and I couldn't just live a lie. I tested him a bit to see his answers and he was not okay with dating an older woman. Still, I felt if I didn't say anything, and we were to get serious it would only make matters worse later. So I told him and he dumped me. I did offer a few meets just as friends and he did reply to the offers I made by claiming he was too busy "but it was not me". He is really set on finding the girl of his dreams, I know this, and have come to accept it - I rather have him in my life than not at all - and I do feel if he wasn't so determined on finding his wife, we would go out and be friends. I do not know if it's all that easy for guys to just toss girls they like aside. My question is, do guys like being pursued by girls they don't really care too much about, but liked a lot if all the conditions were met? Also how do you guys feel about a girl you did like, but was looking for someone better to come along? Would you still talk to her and get together with her just as friends? Is this even a good idea?? Help me out, I don't feel I am being pathetic. I mean didn't stalk him day and night. This was over a 3 week period. But good people especially ones that like each other are hard to come by!
