Why is it that some people affect you more than others? Over the years I’ve been on plenty of dates with guys and the vast majority have ended up nothing more than an entertaining dinner party story.

About 4 months ago I went on a handful of dates with a guy and it went really well. I have blogged about it in the past. In the end it didn’t go anywhere and he ended up ghosting me for a while. A couple of months later I ran into him and it left me shaken for a day. That was when he apologised for ghosting me. A few days before Christmas I finally got a long text explaining why he’d ghosted me. Again, I was left feeling a bit shaken for a day or two.

Why is it that some people get under your skin and make you want them or want to please them so much more than others do? I’m not sure he is interested in ever catching up again and 95% of me is fine with that. Sometimes these things just aren’t mean to be. That other 5% is still hoping for something to work out.

Is it chemical? Is it that for someone like me, they make me feel safe and I know they won’t cheat? Does anyone ever have the answer?
