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.

he sounds like he doesn't know what he wants and is looking for reasons not to commit. Everything you said is correct but you shouldn't have to convince someone to be with you. I personally would be insulted by the comment "he's not sure how to introduce you to his parents".

It makes you sound like some sort of wild woman or something. What would be nice is if he was PROUD to introduce you. I don't think that you/daughter deserve this kind of uncertainty in a relationship. Best of luck in making a decision. Hugs Bella:)

Well, if he is not interested, there isnt much you can do about it. I would not be happy either if he didnt know how to introduce me to his family.

I really feel that you are just looking for some good attention, and this guy isnt giving it to you. You deserve better.
