so about 5 years ago there is this girl I was just friends with for about a year. At some point we went out on a couple dates. On the second date I drove us about 45 minutes to see a band play. it went ok until the end of the night when she very politely asked me if I wouldn't mind if she stayed there with some friends. And I ended up making that seemingly endless drive home alone....also way before this she called me up one night drunk and crying at 2 am. She was sitting in the middle of a traffic lane with a flat and needless to say I went there and changed her tire and got her out of there before the cops showed up.

Well I soon thereafter learned that she was never interested in me. She just used me to get a ride when she needed a ride and get her out of jams because she knew I would come. This has left me somewhat scarred and weary of women.

So I'm going to see her at a friends party tomorrow and I'm hoping for some advice on wether I should forgive and forget or not give her the time of day. Any thoughts?

I had a similiar experience with a guy like you.

We hang out as friends and I have told him many times that I like him as a friend only. I thought he understood.

She could have handled the situation differently. The important thing is to realize that she behaved as most immature girls do...it wasn't anything personal so, don't take it that way. There are nice girls out there. Don't give up.
