New Experiences

So on Wednesday I went on yet another first date. Things went well but now it seems like this new guy is getting really clingy really fast.  I went out with him again on Thursday.  Friday he had something happen with his daughter so he never mentioned us getting together then but I did talk with him for awhile Friday night.  Of course Friday night he seemed disappointed when I told him that I was going to be too busy to see him today. I usually want to spend time with someone new a lot but at the same time I like to have my own time too.  I haven’t dated anyone in a long time that just wants to be with me all the time.  I’m used to having my own life too.  I have friends that I like to hang out with and I enjoy spending time with my kids.  I am starting to wonder whether or not he’s the right type of guy for me.  I think he may crowd me just a tad and I’m really not used to that.  I spent quite a bit of time with my ex last weekend but I still had time to myself.  I had time to do what I needed to do. I am trying really hard to give him a fair chance but between the other guys I have met and my feelings for my ex I worry things with this guy are just not going to work out. I want to believe these feeling are just about my ex but I’m starting to think I am getting a gut feeling that I should listen too.  He barely knows me but he was asking me if I missed him today.  I feel like that question puts me in a trap because there is no good way to answer it.  I had a really good time with him on Wednesday but I’m just not sure how I feel about him now.  I feel like he’s pushing me to completely know how I feel and I’m just not ready to make that kind of decision.  He also has a strange view of things because he basically thinks that you shouldn’t go out with anyone else if you have gone on a couple of dates.  I don’t believe in making a commitment to someone after a date or two.  Actually that’s not true, I think if I really liked him then that wouldn’t matter to me.  I know my ex and I decided to be exclusive after a very short period of time.  The paramedic and I weren’t seeing anyone else and we only went out a few times over the course of three weeks or so,  I guess I should pay attention to my reluctance to commit. I just don’t think I am that into him.
