Last week I met a guy who seriously, is too good to be true. like he reminds me of the dude from the notebook.no joke! He is very charming, handsome and tall, he has travled all over the world, very optimistic view on life, VERRRRY spontaneous, loves to dance and just loves to explore his surroundings. (he is in the Peace Core so it doesn’t surprise me) he is just an all around great guy who just likes to make the best out of everything in life. the more I get to know him, the more I am falling for him. usually this wouldn’t be a problem, but he leaves back to his home town in texas in 2 weeks. :/ this is very disappointing to me because I somehow ALWAYS get the guys who have to leave back to their state or country soon. the only difference with this guy is that he actually invited me to go on a road trip with him on his way back home! sounds exciting I know! but what happens after??? he also keeps saying that I am his “California Dream”. meaning he was hoping to meet a girl like me while he was here in California. which I don’t know how to take … knowing me, I get attached, so im trying to hold back but I cant much longer. I would like for us to still be friends because maybe its just not the right time for us but I feel that will drive me nuts. I want to know where to go from here! thank you for reading. hope you can help!May 4, 2013 at 10:07 pm #14159
It has only been a week. You do not have a clear picture or indication of who this guy is. Your brain chemistry is going off the charts driving the cart. Men can very easily live in the moment and he would enjoy being with you on a road trip and not have it mean anything for the future.
Take control of your emotions and don’t let them get even more out of control than they are. Take time to get to know him and see if he is a quality man in the long run and go from there.May 5, 2013 at 3:30 am #14173
Thank you Bedazzle, you are completely right. im not COMPLETELY head over heels for this guy, but I felt it heading in that direction. Good news is that he plans on seeing me again in the future. like he makes plans such as exploring the city together, going swing dancing, getting involved in a drum circle lol. I just don’t know if I should walk away now, or stay and TRY to be friends. I just hate how I met an amazing guy and he is leaving :/ I admired that he would force me to dance with him in public. lol it was COMPLETELY embarrassing because I really had to step out my comfort zone, but he taught me a valuable lesson: not to care about what others think of you, to do what you love to do with out the fear of others judging you. that is something I will always carry with me forever. just wish it didn’t have to be over soon.
