This guy whom I've been going on dates with (effectively dating I suppose?) for the past month and I had the DTR talk last night. I had just gotten back from a long trip and, given how much I missed seeing him, thought this needed to be done. After telling him how I felt he said this: "You don't want me, I'm telling you now. I feel the same way about you, but I'm no good for anyone."
I told him I'd leave that door open. Nothing else was said on the subject, we went out and had some drinks then said our goodbyes. Today I'm upset about it. He is a young man supporting himself, his parents and a grandparent, all on his own. I knew that it frustrated him that we didn't see each other as much as he wanted us to, but I was okay with it, I understand that he's got a lot going on and I've been supportive. I guess I don't feel like this is the end even though my close friends whom I've told this too say it is. I don't know how I feel, except sad, I want to see him, but I don't want to make this hard on him either. I care very much about him, have I lost him?
