He Entered Rehab
Dear ASK REAL GUYS: I’m a 28-year-old single mother of two boys. I recently met a man who is 27. He is single with three daughters that live out of state. We started communicating a couple of months ago, through texts and e-mails. And we met about two weeks ago, when we hooked up and hit it off pretty well. We have the same sense of humor and enjoy each other’s company. We have been sexually active, but he asked if we could just spend time together to get to know each other so it’s not just about sex, which I understand. We agreed it would be good to get to know each other better so we both know what we are getting into.
Well, a couple of days after this happened, he texted me that he entered rehab for alcohol and cocaine abuse. This is where it gets tricky … he signed himself up for it, knowing he needed help. I want to stick around to be a friend, but I also fell for him. I don’t know if I should still be his friend or if I should run for the hills!
I think once he gets clean, it may be different for both of us. But I also know people need support while going through rehab. His going through this isn’t really a problem; I just think a lot of things are going to change.
Matt: I don’t believe he is that interested in you. If he backed out of having sex with you, that raises questions. Further, if he wanted your support (and friendship) while going through rehab, he would let you know. I would suggest moving on.
