I met this guy off a dating website which I had no intention of taking seriously. After being persistent and asking for number, I finally gave it to him. We exchanged texts back and forth for a month in which he always would ask me out. Being skeptical (my previous blind dates turned out to be disasters), I declined every time. We continued to text and one night I finally caved in because he told he'd be leaving the country. By this point I was curious, so I decided to let him take me out on a date.
To my surprise he has a great sense of humor, is polite, and I could tell he genuinely enjoyed the date. It was a typical dinner and movie kind of night. During the movie he got very touchy. I was uncomfortable not because he went there but because I didn't want him to see me as that type of girl. The night ended with a very steamy make-out session (I'll spare the details). He texted me the next day which I wasn't used to having a guy doing after the first date.
We continued to text and by this point, I'd already become attached. Great, that's the last thing I wanted to be. Like I said earlier, this was the week he was leaving the country for two weeks. We met one more night when I was studying late at the library. At this point, things are going well and I find myself liking him more and more. Yesterday was the day his flight left for Nepal but he wanted to see me one last time which I thought was sweet of him.
We decided to keep in touch every day that he's gone. So my question is, why won't he establish where we stand?
Maybe I'm thinking too much but there is a 6 year age difference between us. I'm only 20 where he's 26 going on 27. Now age is nothing but a number but I feel like we're at very different points in life. I'm a junior in college and still unsure what I want to do with the rest of my life, and he's graduated college long ago and now owns his own business. Wouldn't it make sense that he's not into this whole dating thing anymore? That he might possibly want to settle down?
I merely just broke my teenage years and I'm still naive. I guess that's why people with age differences dating are frowned upon. Could it possibly be that he's using me just to hook up? Or maybe he didn't want to discuss anything until he came back?
