My circle of friends has been talking about going on a trip together and one of my buddies suggested going on a real singles tour. I’ve never heard of such a trip and after they explained to me what usually goes on in these types of events, I was thinking of backing out. The thing is, they know I’ve been down in the dumps lately after my fiancée broke off our engagement a few weeks ago. All this has made me think this is all a conspiracy to push me to start dating again, with the guise of a group outing.
I mean I know that my friends mean well and that I should be moving on, but truthfully, I’m still not over her and our failed relationship. I want to just lie low for a while and move on naturally, in my own terms. How can I make them understand that, without giving off the impression that I don’t appreciate their effort?
