Recently I met a guy
i am probably going to be thrashed for this.... however... If there literally is NOTHING THERE.. no spark,,, no possible friendship down the road..
I don't think you're being selfish or picky or have too high of standards.
Thanks for your answers, they helped a lot.
I've been called picky - that I haven't met a man that measures up to my 'exacting standards'. It's a group joke to the point I have it as my 'welcome message' on my cell phone on start-up. But I keep thinking it's trying to connect to the network when I see it!
I'm actively trying to work away from 'type' and just see - at nearly 35, there aren't as many men around! I'm semi-working to a book called "The Program - How to Find a Husband after 35". It's simply based on meeting as many men as possible, even if they aren't your 'type'.
One friend, who's a great bloke. He wasn't regarded as a catch in our 20's. He's a bit over-weight, and he's 'nice-looking', but no supermodel. At a lunch recently, he says it gives all us normal blokes a go at meeting someone because either all the studs are off the market, or women have cottoned onto the player personality and are more willing to overlook the package to get to know the guy underneath. I really liked hearing his perspective.
So I say great for meeting someone. It doesn't matter there simply was no 'click', you met someone different.
What I find frustrating that people don't get there was no 'click'. Would you continue to date someone you had no chemistry with? No? Then why do you expect ME to???!
I think my friend was thinking this could be a big deal for me then
The concert's today, I am going, it would be rude of me to cancel like another friend suggested.
I hope you enjoy the concert, and yes meeting him is a way of keeping it light and keeping yourself safe.
