SadPanda78 Posted March 15, 2017 Share Posted March 15, 2017 First off, thank you for reading my post. Here's a synopsis of my situation: I've known this girl from our social circles for about a year and met at random social gatherings. A little over a month ago we saw each other at another social event and exchanged numbers and started texting pretty regularly. (Important context: she had just gotten out of a 4 year relationship at the end of 2016 ) After about a week, I decided to ask her out which she accepted. Dates were fun, things were going well and progressed to physical intimacy. After about two weeks, she had left the country for work for ~10 days or so. Upon her return, we saw each other two more times, but things between us didn't seem the same...there was just a different vibe. So one day she mentioned she didn't want to be in an exclusive relationship, (which was her way of saying she needed some space, but was not apparent to me) Outcome is that I was moving too fast with my emotions and the frequency in which I planned too see each other whereas she wanted something more casual and got the dreaded we're looking for two diff things, so let's just remain friends text on Sunday. So we only dated for a little over a month, and while it is a short period of time, she is someone I really liked and enjoyed spending time with and ultimately it still stings. So given the situation, I see this as bad timing. She came out of a long term thing, probably still trying to get over it (esp if you go by the rule of thumb one month for every year you were together). Am I a complete fool to think that I can stay friendly with her and attempt to revisit starting this back up in the future? Appreciate any/all feedback. Link to comment
