A few weeks ago, I got involved very quickly (and unwisely) with a girl I met on the Net who just happened to live about an hour and a half away. To be honest, I was just thrilled that someone would be so immediately enthralled with me (I think she felt the same way about me–both of us were needy for someone, anyone). To make a long story short, we met for the first time, spent a nice day together and I kissed her without thinking about what such a gesture truly means. (I’ve never acted so impulsively in the past because I rarely had such an opportunity.)
About a week later, I start drawing away and politely suggest that we just remain friends. She seemed fine about it at the time and told me she was just feeling things out as well, but now I think she’s not taking it so well in the long run. I can see why she’d be irritated with me, but what can I do now at this point?
