I started chatting with a fellow on line. I stated that I wanted to be just friends because it concerned me that he was 10 years older than me, but he seemed very nice. We spoke on the phone quite a few times, and I asked to meet, as friends, so I could put a face to my 'friend's' name. After meeting the man, we hit it off as friends. We talked for hours, he showed me his home, had we had a few drinks, and he gave me a peck on the cheek goodbye. I didn't feel the 'spark' that I thought was needed to continue seeing him, and I was just looking for a friend, anyways. I don't want to lead the man on, yet I want to see if I can develop romantic feelings for him. We still talk on the phone every day and share emails. We talk just a friends, and even talk about going on a short vacation together (going dutch, of course). He seems like a really nice guy, but it concerns me that I didn't feel the spark, and I think he is starting to want more. Do you think I can grow to 'want' him as a partner & lover in my life? I certainly wouldn't mind....he is such a nice person.
