Sorry, Anushua. Sounds like you stumbled upon a guy with major commitment issues. That seems to me like the most logical explanation for his behavior. What’s crazy to me is that the guy is 32. At his age, he should know better than to get involved with someone without first making it clear that he isn’t looking for anything exclusive. Sounds like he wanted to have his cake and eat it too. His loss.

But kudos to you for handling it like you did. It sounds like you surprised yourself with your reaction, but those are (usually) the best kinds of surprises. :)
