It's like reaching into the fridge for a soda on a hot day excited to taste the refreshing cold carbonation, only to discover it's gone flat and is not even that cold.
How do you end something with someone you've only been seeing for couple of months? It's not quite a relationship, so what do you call it? A datingship? A summer fling? Though summer fling feels too carefree for this particular circumstance.
Circumstance being; I've been seeing someone for the past two months. During the first month I had been casually dating a few other people. However, our first date lasted 8 hours, and only increased from there, thus the rest were benched or faded away on their own accord.
We always have a good time hanging out, as we have quite a bit in common, and share a similar sense of dry humor, though simultaneously it's felt quite unnerving. He keeps wanting to hang out, but seems completely closed off emotionally, and covers any true feelings with a blanket of sarcasm and apathy. The conversations I've initiated regarding my above concern end up becoming circular and go nowhere. I've been known to disarm even the hardest of characters. But with this one I am completely worn out, to the extent I am at a loss as to how he feels about me, in turn making me question how I feel about him.
I want more, and by more I mean; more affection and more openness, and I am starting to wonder if this person is willing/able to give more, to me at least. We are both traveling this month, and I suspect if I do not reach out and open the line of communication, he won't either.
Which brings me back to my initial question. Do I persist and hang in, or just let it fizzle?
