If you remember to let emotional intimacy and friendship precede the physical stuff, moving on when it’s not right will be so much easier and friendship after the date will certainly be possible.Whether you’ve gone on two dates or have been dating for six months, when ending a dating relationship, it’s best to be honest, up front, and kind.Their friendships told a different story: we don’t have to be afraid that love and dating tried and failed will end bitterly.
Sometimes you’re at different places in life, or you want different things for the future.
Or the mysterious “it” factor of attraction just isn’t there.
Similarly, just because you want different things from life, doesn’t mean the other person's goals are bad.
Speaking from experience, just because a particular man isn’t for you doesn’t mean he’s not for someone—maybe even someone you know!
There is nothing wrong with saying, “I’ve enjoyed getting to know you, but I think we’re best as friends.” If your date has the same courtesy as you, it won’t be awkward in social settings, and friendship is much more likely to develop.
