Dear Roe,

I’m a 31-year-old woman and I’m in a situation that I thought I’d grown out of since my 20s, but here we are. I’ve been seeing a man for six months. He’s 38 and divorced, and we met on a dating site. After nearly a month of great dates, we had a conversation about where we “saw this going” and he said that he was still confused about what he was looking for after his divorce, and didn’t want to commit to a relationship.
