I've been lurking here for a while, but only now do I have a question that I can't seem to answer myself.
So on with the back story. I live in the US, but just got back from a multi-year run in Europe. As a result, American women are a major turn off. Since I returned, I've been gaming just about everything that looks even remotely interesting, but I haven't found anything I want to close with. I've never lowered my standards below what I think of as an HB8 (ok well once but I was young).
Anyway, we have lots of Eastern Europeans here, and I met a gorgeous HB9 from Ukraine. Had a great time with her, plenty of Kino, and sort of fell a little head over heels for her.
Sent her flowers with a quirky note attached, spent a few really great nights cuddling on the beach etc. But not even a K-close. I got curious to what the issue was, and she told me that she has a BF in the Ukraine.
I didn't let it get to me, just took her home like it didn't matter, and instead of getting out of the car she just sat there and talked to me for a half hour or so before inviting me to the beach, where we stayed another four hours, eventually falling asleep in a more than friends position.
While we are there she is talking about how she will eventually leave him, but that she promised him she wouldn't do anything with anyone else and how she does like me etc.
I don't have any AA, and have great rapport, but I feel like I am about to cross into the Friend Zone.
What would a pro do?
