Thank you! I had a chance to meet with him last night and it was a good meeting. You gave me very good advice. I asked the same question on Quora (although was not able to provide much details). Most everyone said let him go. Hard to give any advice without knowing the details and even then, no one can predict the future but I think you are closest to what is going on. Yes, I don't feel I will fall into the "friend zone". I think he cares for me very much. We talked about fun things and he is very good about sharing his thoughts (as good as a man can get). I feel we are close. I think he enjoys that closeness. I was calm and shared my thought, fears and told him that I just want him to be happy. My heart was warm when he left and he seems to be looking forward to running with me at this special place we like to go to when he returns from his business trips and visiting with his kids. He told me that since Dec, he has felt "colorless". He was not able to see his kids and that is what triggered it. He said that comes from when he when he looked up at the changing leaves one autumn day. He was on the East coast and the leaves in the fall are spectacular with vibrant colors. He said he looked up and felt "colorless". He got divorced a year later. He says it's not me. I can feel he cares deeply, maybe even feels love for me. I've dated a lot (am 48) and have been in long term relationship as well as have short term dates fizzle out.So I will be his friend for now. Thanks for your reply! Wanted to share with you where we are at.
