  • No it is too hard to fake chemistry and interest. It wouldn't be real if I dated him because I felt bad for them. I don't like leading anyone on either.

  • I have been on several dates like this. I am usually upfront about my feelings. i usually plan something like mini golf or bowling. All have gone home after having a good fun night out!.

  • Initially I will say no, but it might happen in the future, eventually if I don't develop feelings for someone, I might give a chance to someone who likes me, maybe with time I will start to like him back.

  • No, I wouldn't. It would be a waste of mine and his time, not to mention super cruel to that person. Oh and also not fair to myself.

  • I actually hung out with a guy a bunch of times because he was so persistent and I didn't know how to reject him without being mean. It was a horrible experience for me.

  • nope, I wouldn't like to hurt that person in the future, if you give false hopes, it ends up being worse.

  • No. I've befriended someone b/c felt bad, but it would be unethical to date and lead on emotionally if I wasn't attracted to them.

  • A woman 6 years older than me recently felt bad and cried for me when I was distressed and near death. It meant a lot to me because nobody around me including my family are caring about how I feel etc. I said Hi to her after the event but she didn't even respond and turned away, not even considering the slightest friendship. I saw her again and she attempted to hide, just staring at me when I noticed her.

    After a while, I sent her flowers showing my appreciation because I just had to do it mentally.

    I still really wonder why she didn't even consider talking back to me.
