He will either leave or claim you. Sometimes it is real good to have a buddy from the opposite sex that you just get on with. If that man wanted to be in a relationship with you then he would make it happen. My divorce-in—progress status is a red flag. Should I suggest he contact me when the divorce is final? And I came second after everything, even the laundry.
If you are in more immediate danger, call your local police department. If you see a pattern of frequent lying, this could also be a sign. I have been mostly optimistic about dating.

Which meant that this situation would be at his convenience only, and he had no intentions of sacrificing any time and energy for me or catering to any emotional needs or concerns that I might have. Too invested in mr fun, go find mr future. As you point out above, the 'rebound' here can actually be a means for trying to extend the past relationship through a jealousy move. Get to know each other better first as friends before going deeper.
I broke it off, simply because I deserved better. You wake up with regret, but know full well that you'll probably commit the crime again — after a bottle or two of Pino. And after the bad news comes out, the relationship usually fizzles. Some people like to come around on their own time. This man had all the accessories: nice looks, good personality, owned his own business.
By the end of my tenth month of dating him, he was checking out other women whenever we went to restaurants together. Thank you for sharing your story. It is odd that he does not want that moniker. Anyway… I remember when I was getting frustrated by his blowing hot and cold and him not wanting to spend certain periods of time with me.

What people will do really isn't that big a mystery. Maybe this guy is not forever, but enjoy the moment and realize that sometimes folks come along when we need them. You will find him—but you have to know you deserve it! He doesn't ask questions about your family and friends.
So if you want a relationship, then of accepting less than that man officially making you his girlfriend and behaving as he should in a relationship. Eventually, you have to reveal your feelings.
