When I was at university there was a guy I liked. It took me a while to find the courage to ask him out but eventually I did and he said yes. We went on a few dates & then he said he wanted to see other people. I was crushed but moved on.
Many years later I bumped into him at my workplace. He happened to be working at the same company I had just started working for. After we’d talked a few times he asked me why our relationship had never worked out. I had to remind him that he didn’t want to be in a relationship with me. He said he’d made a mistake and asked me out but now I was in a committed long term relationship with another guy & no longer had any feelings for him.
It was nice to feel wanted though and a reminder that sometimes things don’t work out due to timing.
