i like... a lot!
Hmmmm....Why does it seem so many people want 'Instant Gratification!' Too many games and too much instant gratification. What happened to the getting to know people. I tend to believe this is why we see so many heart broken filled relationships. I completely agree with many points of Carhill.
I'm pretty introverted, so you may have to message first, I tend to put others before myself, and I always make a significant other my.
Wonderful in every way would repeat over and over again and will best money spent in ages lovely to be treated so well. After some bad experiences cannot praise enough!
Personally, it's not really our call if she was used or not. She is hurting. and she wants to be liked by a man she likes (or liked), I think. And that doesn't seem to be happening. Arguing about whether she was used or not doesn't help anything, I don't think.
She unreliable, disrespectful and uncaring about your time and your feelings. Why do you lament this "friendship" which offers you nothing but letdowns, broken promises and the subsequent resentment that you expressed in your post.

Again, I disagree. That's not a logic I would apply in my own life. Your rationale doubtless is aligned with the way Kat is seeing it, and thus you are better able to address her in this than I am.

After recovering somewhat from that horror, I began to dabble in the world of dating. I was actually afraid that if I felt real attraction towards any man, it would be a sign that I should RUN. That led me to date a few really nice men for whom I felt NO attraction. I was trying with all my might to change my self destructive pattern. If the man was nice, a good person in the world (not just with me), had values and a lifestyle that I respected, I decided to give him a chance. That entailed some significant dating without any attraction. I was NOT "emotionally abusing" the fellows (and I am thinking of one really good guy in particular). I will say that it was not an ideal situation for them; they were being experimented with - but isn't dating experimenting anyway? I truly hoped that something would "grow." Well ... nothing did grow. When I knew that was an absolute, I stopped "dating" him.
I've been giving online dating a try and I'm trying to keep an open, positive attitude about it.
