I'm very much a home-body, so I don't go out much and meet a lot of people. In recent months I've been trying to reverse that and meet more people.
So far the pattern is this:
- Meet someone.
- Start chatting and talking.
- Notice a distinct chemistry.
- Attempt to move things to the next level.
Now this is where things get frustrating. Despite the two of us obviously having a good time with each other and there being chemistry, I always get the following line:
"I just want to be..." and then the dreaded "F" word: Friends.
What's wrong? Why do I keep getting shot down like that?
Anyone else keep getting this too?
