7 months ago I met a man on a plane. I was on a business trip and we spoke for the hour flight. He knew my first name and the business I was in and with that information alone tracked me down 3 weeks later. We live in different states and have seen one another over the last 6 months, including trips for me to meet his family in another state and spending Thanksgiving together. When we are together our times are wonderful. A month ago he let me know that he has continued to date other people and that he was not "in love with me"... but at the time he was also upset about me thinking we were in a relationship and kept saying "how are we going to grow old together if you ask me 'what the hell'". I had not heard from him and had gotten upset. From the beginning he has not been one to call often. He will call once a week or so and then about 3 weeks after we've had a visit want to plan another visit.
Here's my question. Although he is dating other people and isn't in love with me, do I continue seeing him or should I cut my losses and move on? I have fallen in love with him, but I don't want to hurt myself by hanging on to someone that has also stated that their life is "on hold".
Do I remain patient or am I avoiding a tough decision and acting like a love sick teen?
