I have been getting over an ex for the past 2 and a half years. I have dated a lot but have never wanted to commit myself to anyone. A few months ago I met a guy who was in a similar situation and hasn't dated that much at all in the past 3 years. However, I have now fallen in love with him. It didn't take long but the feelings are as intense and real as my previous love (if not more). The problem: I told him. In a weak moment I just blurted out what I have been feeling and holding back for weeks. He said he knew on some level how I felt but he doesn't feel that way about me: not yet anyway. We have passed over that night and haven't mentioned the topic since. But it's there, hanging. He has since said all the cop-outs: I love being with you, I love spending time with you, I missed you all week...yet I can't even find the strength to say "me too". It just seems so empty. He has also become much more attentive and I want to embrace it but am afraid.
At a loss for love
