Honestly, this isn't my situation, but I am at at a loss as to what to tell my friend. He received this email from this girl he likes, and what's my input. I've told him all that could come to mind earlier, which wasn't much. He wants more feedback and how to respond to this. What would you do or what advice would you give to your friend regarding this: You will not believe what happened today. I was at work taking some guests to their room and my cell phone fell out of my pocket onto the rocks. The result? I have no picture on my screen, and none of my keys work! This is the 4th time I have broken this phone, its a good thing I have a warrenty because otherwise I would be paying out the ass! So I don't know if you were sending me messages or not, but until tuesday, I wont have a phone. This actually happened at the worst time, because I really wanted to talk to you today, and I hate that I have to write this, but I don't want to wait until I get my phone. First of all, I had a great time last night. Even though I got hit with that branch and the movie kind of sucked, I had alot of fun lol. But something came up last night and I should have said something then, but I didn't. I have a lot of fun with you, but I am not in a place where I have time to devote to dating and potentially a relationship. And I felt really bad last night after I kissed you because the last thing I wanted to do was lead you on, which is why I needed to say this now before the next few days go by. I don't like doing anything half-assed, and thats what it would be like if I agreed to a second date and beyond that. As it is, I don't have a lot of time to talk, or text, or go out, and don't take this the wrong way, but I have alot on my plate as it is, and i don't want to add something else and have it all go to hell. This all just kind of happened at the wrong time, and I should not even have agreed to the first date knowing all this, but you and I got along so well, I just didn't want to say no. With all that said, I really hope you understand, and I hope you and I can still be friends and hang out when we can. I'll understand if you don't want to, I feel awful about getting this kind of started and then throwing on the breaks. But I just have to focus on some other things right now before I can think about having anything serious with someone. I'm really sorry *****, I hope you understand. I'll give you a call as soon as I get my new phone, but I'd like it if you wrote back.
