The Question Club
Lets say you are still trying to get over a bad breakup with an abusive boyfriend (that happened about three months ago, but it was very traumatic, and it involved a lot of emotional/mental abuse). And to take your mind off of him and all your troubles, you are visiting a friend in college and you end up making several new friends. It soon becomes apparent that one of these friends has a crush on you. Physically, you are not attracted to him whatsoever.. and he seems to act more like a child than an actual college student, but he's supposedly a very smart and a very nice person. He reminds you of your cousins, and he reminds you a lot of yourself. |
Your other friends encourage you to go out with him based upon the fact that he's "just like you", in more ways then one.. personality and appearance. But the problem is, you don't want to date yourself, and you are having a lot of problems feeling any emotion towards anyone at the moment. He starts to follow you around like a lost puppy, and your friends give him your number.
He tells your friends he wants to get to know you better, which you don't mind.. since he's a nice friend and a good person. But you REALLY don't want to hurt this guy's feelings, and you really aren't sure if you feel anything towards him or not and you don't want to lead him on. He's a very sensitive guy, and part of you feels that this is your last chance at a relationship with anyone, and this guy seems like a guy who will not hurt you in any way, shape or form. But again, you are not physically attracted to him at all... you are kinda weirded out by him because he looks almost exactly like your brother.
1.) What do you do?
2.) Is it normal to be attracted to one race (that isn't your race), and one race only?
