Business vs Pleasure
He's rich, high profile. We met at some dinner. He went overseas 2 days after we met so now he's back and wants to meet. From phone conversations I think he is romantically interested in me. I suspect he is married and would not want to be his mistress and he's probably +- 20 years my senior.

I wanna set up a business and from that night we met I was excited and knew I have just met someone with contacts who might end up helping me. Well I did not see this coming. He just called and would like to meet. How do I handle this meeting? I want to make sure that no matter how it goes I can still keep him around but I dont want to sell my soul. I guess I must just pray about it.

Any ideas. I hope I am not being presumptious but I have seen men like him before. If they cannot get what they want there's no point in sticking around.

Hope*'s response is excellent. You want to use him for business and financial purposes, without allowing yourself to be bought by him or to feel a major obligation towards him. He sounds very much as though he wants to use you sexually, and especially if he is a married man ( it's a really bad sign that you don't know that yet ) this only means trouble for all of you. So I agree with Hope*'s suggestion for handling this. And if there is any financial agreement, have it put in writing and enforceable, rather than leaving it open for him to use it to put pressure on you
