I'm seeing this guy, but we aren't exclusive yet. When he asked me on a date I said I couldn't go, but instead went out with some friends. I told him that it was a special occasion and he completely understood. I still hear from him, but I feel like things have changed. Did I hurt him? Do I owe him an explanation or it shouldn't matter because he isn't my boyfriend yet, I don't need to tell him about my whereabouts. Is this just a bump in the road and since things seem to be going slowly in the right direction, I guess I should just wait it out. You time will tell, or do I need to make it up to him and show I care and give him an explanation?
