I didn’t go on an online dating site because I want to meet new friends. Ultimately, I want to meet the man with whom I hope to spend the rest of my life. And I’d like to have fun doing it! I would like to meet someone to date, to have fun with, to enjoy a little romance.
And yet, the best relationships begin with a strong foundation of friendship…
So what does one do when there seems to mutual interest, and then one backs off and offers friendship?
It would be disingenuous for me to say that I’m looking for new friendships in this manner. Instead, getting the brush-off and then being asked to be friends feels more like being on “keep warm” or “back burner” status. In other words, not something I enjoy.
I want to be on the front burner, the burner turned to hot, feeling a little sizzle!
