so basically there's this guy i really like and im dying to finally meet him, we met about a year ago on a dating website we talked for a few months then things went rough between me and him so we stopped contacting each other. Two months ago however we started talking again, i was going through depression then and just talking to him made me feel 100 times better that even my therapist was happy with my progress but advised me to be careful not to break again. Today he asked if we could meet by the end of this month and i was so excited i immediately said yes however i can't afford to travel to see him nor he can he come and see me cuz i'm in Syria and it's not as safe what can i do? shall i tell him the truth or what please help
Um, well if you can't see each other he's going to figure it out sooner or later so yes you should tell him sooner that it just isn't going to work to meet currently. Tell him you were excited when he asked but you've realised you can't afford it, and try to offer an alternative (that shows you actually do want to meet). Being honest is best.
Yes you should tell him the truth. I'm sure he'll understand due your circumstances which is beyond your control
He'll obviously be disappointed that you never told him sooner and may even decide to stop pursuing you, because he is so eager to meet you. It may be a dealbreake for him knowing he has no way of meeting up with you.
Regardless, he deserves the truth. It's unkind to lie to him when he is so interested in you and genuinely wants to see you.
Its very sad and unfortunate , because you both like each other a lot but have no control over the situation. So It's impossible to meet up at this moment in time. He needs to know that
