Men: an unknown kind of the human race…

Men always say us women are complicated, but probably they don’t know themselves at all.
I used to have an opinion on somebody I didn’t know at all, but then we started talking and we became sort of friends (at least that was/is what I thought it was, now I don’t know anymore). I loved the chats, at the end he wasn’t that scary as I thought. We (women) think that when we create some sort of bonding with a man then we’re done, they understand us, we’re happy, end of the story. WRONG! At some point they start drawing back, leaving us astonished at the thought of “hey, what’s just happened?“. That’s pretty much what happened to me. I thought we were good and all of a sudden things changed. I don’t understand it anymore. He’s taking back things he said in the past , I really don’t understand what’s happening and I think he’s avoiding me… I thought it might be because we’re mind-alike and he feels threatened. That’s the big difference. I like the talks because I find them challenging, I like him because for once I can talk to somebody younger who understands me, but he doesn’t like it at all because he’s the man, and no way I, a woman, can be as strong minded as he is.
Gosh, why men have to be such children?? I feel sad, angry and disappointed at the same time.
I really hope things will work out, because all I can think of is that I might have made the biggest mistake of my life…
