I have been dating someone for 3 months. He told me last night he has reservations because his feelings aren't growing as fast as he thinks they should and I am divorced with a child. He also is not sure how to introduce me to his parents, who are very conservative. I stated I would like to see where things go because in my experience when 'sparks fly' right away things inevitably crash and burn. We both agreed to give ourselves some space and time to think. Should I walk or hang in for awhile longer? How long should you date someone before throwing in the towel because the feelings have plateaued? I am divorced and he has never been married, so he also is unsure about getting involved seriously with the baggage in mind. We are both older and would like to find someone to settle down with.
