A very long story short, I was introduced to a Christian guy a few months ago. We saw each other a couple of times at get-togethers with friends, and I’m still in that stage of ‘could be interested but being very cautious’ (I was in a serious relationship that ended in February, and don’t want to ride that merry-go-round again). My mom thinks the guy is totally smitten because he teases me, makes outlandish compliments, and talks business ideas with me. (He’s something of a visionary, that much I can tell already.) I still don’t know exactly what to do about it, aside from deflect the more ridiculous compliments and keep things somewhat impersonal. He’s started calling ‘just to chat’ occasionally as well.
I still have no idea if he’s even someone I would want to consider for a variety of reasons (some of which have to do with myself and the previous failed relationship, and some that have to do with his more quirky personality traits). I don’t want to lead the guy on, but I don’t want to give him the smackdown either simply because I don’t know him.
