I've been in a relationship for almost 6 years. The relationship is great. My boyfriend is the love of my life. However, a month ago, I met a much older man at a bar and have met him up for drinks 3 times.
I told this man that I didn't have a boyfriend and my boyfriend doesn't know that I had drinks with another guy. I'm attracted to this man because he is much older but overall, I'm not that attracted to him. I basically show up, laugh at his jokes, and have a decent conversation with him. He has expressed that he really likes me and texts, emails me and wants to take me out to dinner. It is flattering.
My boyfriend has been the only person I've dated so when the opportunity to socialize with another guy came, I took it. I want to stop communicating with him because I don't want to be a cheater. I'm not into him in a romantic way. I love my boyfriend. How should I let the man know? Do I even need to explain myself or can I just stop returning texts and calls?
