Europe and heart ache.
I was recently backpacking in Europe in an effort to discover more about myself and to get as distant as possible from the hectic life style I lead. While I Was in Poland, I met this gorgeous funny girl, and we hit it off right away. We spent a lot of our time just talking and talking. We connected very deeply, yet non of us dared to make a move on the other. After 5 days I said my goodbye and went on my way. When I got back home, we started to exchange emails, and flirting started to be the norm. Things moved quickly from there, and we started liking each others way too much. I am considered by many to be a sweet guy, so since I like her a lot, I am usually sweet with her. She on the other hand seems like she is not used to such things from guys and started to fall for me right away. We were once talking on skype, and she confessed her love to me. To be honest, I know I am at fault for this, but I wasn't just able to turn her down and ended up telling her I love her anyway. Ever since, she has been so demanding and falling for me deeper and deeper. I like and respect her, so even though I am not happy, I always get pressured into say things with her. She made me promise for example to never hurt her. Now, I don't intend to hurt her, but I am fed up. I like her a lot, but I don't want to be in a long distance relationship. I don't know how things will be in the future. So could you guys please advice me on how to let her down gently? She keeps telling me that she never felt like this before, and can't believe what is happening. She is so in love with me that it is scary, and I can't just hurt her since she told me that I changed her views on guys (she used to be very skeptic about relationships and guys) And I don't want her to be even more skeptic this time. I am really torn as what to do, and I would really appreciate any advice.
