Or..he's just not into you.
Or..I just don't know what's up with him.
Yup, I choose the last one.

LOL Norty, you're a very verry smart man! CYOA!

Silver.....Its good to catch up with you again.....Men and Women can definitley do things together and keep it that way.....I do many things with my male friends and that's where it stays.....If it went anywhere else it would change these beautiful friendships
and you know what... they always have your back no matter what....keep it for what it is your sensitive right now....if it is going to be something else you'll know!.....but enjoy the relationship for what it is right now......Mo

I have a number of lady friends that would ride a t a moments notice,but you have to define your relationship so theres no confusion between friends and more than friends.you can sleep with anybody,but friends are hard to find .

I think it is a bit jaded to assume everyone that wants a friendship has an ulterier motive. Many do I am sure.

But, not to sound too sophmoric, but if something develops between friends/buddies, what is wrong with that?

Myself, going through a split after 13 years of marriage, I want to meet new people and forge friendships.... spend FUN time together. Sort of at a place right now that that is the limit I set.

NEver know though. Every day starts a new beginning and every night closes the curtain til the next day.

Silver... As long as you both like each others company, enjoy it for all it's worth. He may be shy or have bad experiences. Let it flow naturally, Just be thankful you have each other for right now. Life comes in seasons, don't pass up something good with worrying about the small stuff

I seem to have found a riding companion that is interested in just that. He's a doll. We go to rides and functions, he's a gentleman, calls when he says, etc. We always laugh and have a good time. He is MC mech. I had tires put on my bike when I ran into him(I had seen him before)when I was married, but now I'm divorced. I asked him if he was married, he said "no", I asked him if he wanted to go riding sometime, he said "yes". We met, talked more, he gave me a bunch of flyers with events and wanted to go the next day. He just hasn't displayed much affection. So far, I'm willing to let it go because it's better to get to know someone. When I see him, I just want to ride everywhere! I told him I had to start school and couldn't see him so much. He seemed bummed out, and said he would look for events around the holidays that we could go to. He is tall, dark hair, beard, handsome. Could it be that we just get along and he just wants to ride? He is also 13 yrs. my jr. That kinda bothers me, but he has never asked my age. So hey guys, what's up? I'm thinking I should just enjoy his company and let the rest go. He is a saving grace right now in my life.

Silver, from a male point of view: Myabe the guy's shy, maybe he himself has had some bad relationships and doesn't want to rush into anything. Don't analyze it too much, just enjoy today and worry about tomorrow........next week, lol.

When it gets to the point that you just can't stand it anymore........then just ask him. Hell, by that time he may be asking you...relax sister and enjoy the ride.

and you know--the best relationships start as friends--and commonality

so whatever the future brings will be a surprise--you never know what is in store

and i do understand--my 24 yr marriage ended 3 yrs ago--and believe me the 1st few dates i had were somewhat terrorifying(sp)

i have many male friends that ride and there is nothing more to our relationahip than friendship

i don't know if it happens as much in the non-rider world but in this one we all have a common ground that binds our souls
