| RDG- I just got through reading this and a few things strike me. Do you realize how many times you put this guy on a pedestal and put yourself down? You mention it as far as intelligence and artistic ability. It's already like he is untouchable and you are unworthy and that surprises me because you are a woman with a hell of a lot of intelligence and have an awful lot to offer. In other words, honey, you ain't no slouch! I agree with a lot thats been said here already - I do believe that men like the thrill of the chase and anything made too easy is not challenging enough. Also, as much as you may be sympathetic that he has no place to stay, you are under no obligation to house this guy and his partner and should not feel bad about it either. I totally get that this man is fabulous in your eyes, but it's not gonna be right until you are fabulous in his eyes. Holly. |
Holly, I do feel that he's a hunter no so much interested in the prey as in the hunt.
Thank you for the compliment. But he is brighter. Not as handsome as some (in my eyes) - in fact the male Lovelies are a lot cuter, the one I met and the ones I've seen in pics. He just, you know, has that energy that I dig. He's traveled a rough road of his own making, and he's made it. and his work is fantastic. He had a rough childhood and a couple of tough marriages, and he made it through all that intact. Yeah, a lot of people have. But he noticed ... me.
However, I won't deal with breadcrumbs, not much longer anyway. Either he acts (or lets me act should I decide to invite myself), or I shall do what SP suggested, and block his posts for a while.
It's flattering when a man tells you you're an amazing, unique woman, and cites all your talents and what he loves about your personality. But although I like to move slowly, I don't like moving this slowly. And when he went silent when I asked if we could meet for dinner, I think I received my answer, hurricane or not.
Thanks again, Holly.
And to all of you ... for your earthy realism and compassion, both. I have a right to live strong. But, you know, I liked him so much ... . If only I had shut down when he first started to sweet-talk me ... but how could I have known then?
