This guy I like works with me at a major retail store part time. He’s a firefighter but 2 days out the week he works retail for extra income. I’m attracted to him. He found out from a friend of mines, that I’m attracted to him and he said that he just got out of a 6 year relationship (no kids or marriage) and he just wants to stay single for awhile and focus on him. I get that 100%. He also told me that we could work on a friendship and build that first before anything romantic and I agreed. However, it doesn’t seem like he is trying to get to know me in order to build that friendship and get to know one other. I’m starting to just leave him alone and ignore him from now on but apart of me wants to see if he really just need more time.
