So tonight I had dinner with The Guy.
It was fine, at first. I didn't give him the cold shoulder treatment. I hugged him when he got to the restaurant. We hadn't seen each other since August, after all.
We had some good conversation, and the dinner was pretty good too seeing as how I picked the restaurant! If it were left to him, we would have ended up at either Denny's or an all you can eat sushi joint.
So, after dinner, he looked me straight in the eyes and told me he had something to tell me. He told me he was sorry for not having been clear with me about our situation, and that he should have done so. He was apologizing for leading me on. It was nice to hear, and it made me a bit sad. I'm not running back into his arms, nor am I helping him with his projects anymore.
Will we still hang out on occasion? We'll see. Do I even care if we do or not? Yes, of course I do. I still do care about him. I can't just cut someone out like that, and force my feelings to dissipate. I have moved on, however, and aim to continue to move onwards.
