She didn't want to make her boss Callie angry about her actions and stalled him.
Eventually, they decided they were better as BFFs and let the whole thing sort of pass. The two hit it off and began seeing one another casually. At this point in the series, Alex was a bit of a dog, which is something that George would learn the hard way. Karev and see what might transpire with O'Malley. In the case of Mark and Dr. Teddy Altman, neither wanted the same thing and it ultimately doomed the relationship.
Teddy wasn't looking for something serious, but Mark was more interested in a meaningful, long-term relationship. He was pushed by Callie to go out with her for this purpose, but Teddy wasn't interested in that.
Eventually, they did become involved and Teddy ended up getting what she wanted, but Mark saw the writing on the wall and knew there wasn't a long-term situation happening. It wasn't a regretful relationship for the series, but more of a hiccup for these characters that most people simply forgot about and moved on from.
He had come to the hospital to provide counseling for survivors, but never treated Teddy as a patient. She eventually started a relationship with him, but spent most of her time talking about her problems When it came time for him to leave, she detached from him when she realized she fell for unavailable men.
Eventually, they got back together and planned to move to Germany together, but when push came to shove, Teddy decided to stay behind so she could be close to Henry Burton, whom she married so she could get him on her insurance.

While they were together, George got involved with someone else and they fought constantly. It was a constant struggle when these two were together and they never had a good chemistry with one another.

It was hard on her, and frankly, entirely unfair.
