Yes, something like that. Never completed and perhaps even never started. And it implies a one-time action. Here's an example from the Polish Corpus:
Nasza przyjaźń przetrwała dlatego, że zawsze miałem ochotę cię poderwać, a nigdy tego nie zrobiłem.
Our friedship lasted (that long) because, even though I always wanted to make a move on you, I (ultimately) never went through with it.
