She stated that she would still be happy to see him, or be his friend, or cuddle with him, but for now, she’s taking time to overcome the “romantic feelings” he does not share, which includes dating other guys.
“He got really upset, saying that I was manipulative and toxic, trying to “force” him to call me his girlfriend or I would go sleep with others,” she said.
“He also said that I was pushy for wanting a definition of the relationship this early in. This made me feel really bad, and I am now questioning my decisions. Maybe part of me wanted to see his reaction when I told him I wanted to go on other dates, not to “force him” to be with me (I wouldn’t want that anyway if I know he does not want it) but to show him that I am not just a silly girl completely in love with him and that I do have options.”
“Maybe that was super toxic. But at the same time, I am just being honest. I don’t want to be in a one-sided relationship. Gah, I don’t know. I need an outside perspective.”
What do you think she should do next?
