I was afraid this was going to happen. As I talked about in this post, I asked a girl out on a date. But that never went anywhere. She kept saying she was really busy, and thus kept postponing.
Well, she finally gave me a straight answer. A couple of months ago she got her heart broken, and she’s not ready to get romantically involved with someone else just yet. So while she was interested in being friends, she knew I had romantic intentions and didn’t want to hurt me. Thus the excuses (of course, she really is very busy, so the excuse was somewhat valid).
Of course, I understand, and I’m not hurt. I figured something like this was probably what was going on. But I think we can still be friends, so it’s not a complete loss.
