my response: was trying to ask you on a date, so is that a no?
he responded with: Honestly (my name), you're really great and deserve some proper attention and effort from someone. Unfortunately, you caught me at a point where I was pulling back from dating to focus on goals and personal stuff, and you're rad so I was drawn in, but it seems unfair to you knowing I'm not fully there. I'm really sorry if this caused you any grief, and I hope we can keep in touch.
I responded with: no worries, let me know when your design project is finished. i would love to see it! (we bonded over our mutual art form)
he responded: I will! If you want to check out my wood shop sometime, let me know
this was a week ago, and we haven't talked since.
should i take him up on the wood shop offer, or was he just being polite? will he actually message me when his project is done? is it possible he does like me but genuinely is too busy to start a relationship?
basically, what do i think/do?
