What exactly does a man in his mid-40's(divorced, was married for 25 years to his high school sweetheart, who was his first girlfriend) want with me? I thought it was worth exploring until, on our first date, he expressed wanting to be in a close relationship with me. I didn't know what to say and kinda' brushed it off. I could tell he felt a bit offended/rejected?
The truth is, it put me off and made me wonder why he's such in a hurry, or if he's only after one thing. It's been a week and today, he sent me an SMS asking when he can see me. I'd love to go out with him again, get to know him better, but I'm afraid he's going to bring up the relationship thing again...and it's something I don't even feel comfortable discussing with him at this stage.

TALK TO HIM! Be up-front and honest. At his age, he can handle it and will appreciate you being honest. The worst thing you can do is feel wrong about something but act like it's okay. Even if it means that things don't work out between you, telling the whole truth means that neither of you waste any more time if it turns out that you want different things, or have radically different time-tables.
He probably has no idea how you feel, and it's very possible that he's willing to adjust to accomidate your needs and feelings, but he can't do that if he doesn't know how you feel.0
