How to tell if he wants more than a hookup

he told me that he didn’t know if he could give me much at the moment because he just got a new job in a different state and is graduating so he is freaking out about life. but i don’t know if it’s just wishful thinking on my part. i would like to keep him interested, and maybe it would progress into more than sex? so i texted her about a party i knew about the next night and she agreed right away to go excitedly. tell him you would appreciate his honesty and that you don’t want anyone toying with your feelings. i’ve known him for 3 months now, and in the beginning, he told me that we could only be friends, that he likes me but his “gut” tells him we could never be together, that there is a difference between liking and being in love. we cuddled and watched movies if i came over at night. susani was in an relationship which was not working i meet another guy online talked for about a week or two before meet seem to get along ok was alot of physical chemistry between us and could make me lauth seemed nice meet a few times ended up having sex with him he know i had boyfriend explained situation to him that we was pretty much over for years and that we was like friends and that i was going to end it though meet up about 5 times before i managed to end with bf seemed still to get along ok but most times we meet up ended up having sex would go for odd walks,watch tv, kiss after sex etc talk abit seemed to be going ok still was asking if i dumped my bf yet and when said no i want to but it very hard to said i was a big chickens though i had ask him to meet up most of times and only talked to him on msn and if i would txt him he mostly txted me back. i want him to show me that he likes me more than just some girl who comes over and now probably has sex.  we chatted some more, then he said he had to leave and would text me. if it’s a relationship, then continuing fwb is a bad idea. she wants to hook up with you, she’ll play hard to get but not too hard to get. tell him how you feel and see if he feels the same way. i don’t ask him if he’s dating anyone else or how he spends his time (i really don’t want to know). i waited a couple days she didn’t text, so i texted her asking how she was doing and by the end of the convo we determined that after her midterm on thursday we would go out and have fun. the next day was a weekend,i didnt have any plans so was he and he asked me to come over again but in the morning which it surprised me but hey………i said what the hell so i went for it and things were different. he even brought up to me in front of his friends something like, “if we were living together, would you do this ______”. he suggested we could go ‘somewhere more private’ but i declined; i said i really wanted to be with him but i implied that i wasn’t really used to doing these things on a regular basis and i needed just a little more time. long-distance relationships are very difficult, and many people don’t want to do that. it may signal a desire for something more, or it may be his idea of heaven just as it is. you should do if you wake up still feeling exhausted after a nap. he was a life guard at my pool at that time. will tell you that i think your chance of being happy in a fwb relationship is about zero. i also told him i was confused because he didn’t want me with anyone else and he could get that ‘jealous’ tone if there was any guy and how he kept in contact with me all these years and i didn’t know what that means and i felt like i deserve to know something because of that. do they seem like he cares as more than just fwb? generally speaking, the “hookup” standard is anywhere from a tick to a massive chasm lower than the “dating” standard. he said that when he finds out if a sex buddy is falling for him that he cuts the sex off and concentrates on being friends., i’m still distrustful of guys (after my ex) and don’t know if i’m capable of being in a relationship. apparently she didn’t take him back because of his upset facebook posts and the fact that we started hanging out again. now i am second guessing and wondering if he doesn’t think i’m as pretty in person, or the chase is off now because he got the prize, etc…. is how every zodiac sign ruins their own life without even trying to. but if he can’t seem to walk with you without walking at an abnormally brisk pace, standing 20 ft. he’s been divorced for over 2 yrs, and claims i’ve met him at the best point he’s reached in his life. we live in different countries, so one of us or both fly.” the simplest conclusion is that he’s operating on a different “love plane” than you are. i don’t know if he said the truth or if he is just pulling away.  we had a great weekend together this last weekend and it seems we both want it to be more than it has been so we will see what happens. have been emotional in the past and he has given me nothing , and it feels like the tables have turned, i ignore him when he gets emotional it ends up being that awkward silence till his forced to change the subject, i know it’s immature and mean but i feel like if i ignore it it’s not there. he asked if it was okay, and i joked that it was only because i hadn’t conquered this room yet. we talk more…he texts me more…if he happens not to be at my apartment…always tells me goodnight.[…] read this: 25 men answer “what’s the difference between a girl you date and a girl you just hook… read this: why women don’t want careers read this: 17 little things attractive girls do differently cataloged in […]. you ask her to hang and she makes up excuses, then chances are, she’s not swooning over the thought of kissing you. if there’s no real possibility of a future, and he is deciding to keep it casual for that reason, then falling for him is a bad idea. he’ll bring me my favourite candy on a study date) he is territorial – much of his facebook has to do with me, which is more or less a public indicator of all the time we spend with each other (his ex has taken note 🙁 she has expressed her dislike at the situation – shes not over him) most importantly, if another guy starts flirting with me he will get concerned and interrogate (and plays it off humourously – “designed to elicit information” hits the nail on the head perfectly) i have a best guy friend at university who’s girlfriend happens to be my best friend back home (the three of us are really close) i have to convince my guy frequently that i dont have feelings for my best friend, and the one time that the two of them chatted with each other, my guy acted rather hostile to my best friend. so i texted him, telling him that it made me feel unsure of things when he was dismissive in person on occasion and that it made me worry that he didn’t mean the things he said about caring about me. he asked if i was taking classes and said maybe he’ll see me around campus. can’t tell from your description if he is a good guy who got very frustrated or a player who got impatient. i took that he was seeing if i would relocate. the reason for me to choose someone far away from here is because i know that casual relationships are not for everyone, so if things can go wrong,then it`ll be easier for me to get out of it and be free knowing that he wont be close by to remind me of my mistakes.  he proceeded to apologise and ask if i could forgive him, i replied that i would but that i was not sure i could mea meaningless f*** anymore as i had developed some feelings and thought we should end it before i got hurt. the things that make me feel as though he is indeed falling for me are more like him going out of his way to come see me at a wake to make sure i’m ok… granted he lives a few blocks away from where the funeral home was but he came by and called me and said ” i’m outside, would you like to take a break and a cigarette with me? it doesn’t need to be hostile, just an honest statement that the fwb is not working for you anymore.: haha night 🙂the next night he texted me asking if u wanted to hang out, i went and hung out with him and his roommates at 8:30 (his roommates are really nice and cool) and then the two of us hung out by ourselves in his room 10 till 12, talking at first, watching a movie, and then the night ended with us making out for the first time. i kept asking myself the same- i don’t know if i hurt/confused his feelings or he was a player who got impatient. if he doesn’t agree or tells you that he is unready/unsure if he wants to be in a relationship, you might just have to let it go. and he gave me that heavy flirting, that interest, and now, more formal. contact between us was way more strained and awkward, but we hung out a couple times in the month following the breakup. and i said, i don’t want you to but i you should go because that’s what your heart wants and you don’t want to live a life full of regrets.. i dont know why i am telling u to i really dont know’ i didnt reply and he kept messaging me saying please reply and then he called me but i told him i dont want to argue and fight and to please talk about any thing else but not why he keeps encouraging me to hook up.: yeah kinda haha, come hang out if ur not busy:)., came into my life… i am so heartbroken, because i don’t know what a wants. he says i would be his girlfriend if these thing were different.” a wise young woman who attends spelman college, a great feminist accomplishment, once told me, “if a man can text you at 1:40 a. but i bring it up because if your man is openly asserting his desire for sexual variety it’s going to be a long time or a lightning strike before he will work out that instinct to the point he’s comfortable with marital sexuality. if you are dry, lube can help, but if you are anxious and your pelvis is contracted you are definitely not ready. nothing in your story indicates he is interested in a love relationship, nor is he willing to make a relationship with a woman a priority in his life right now. may do all this hooking up and stuff, which is fine, but if they dont care about a girl, they are really making it harder on us and make us feel worse by playing with our emotions. he always asks who i’m texting, and asks if it’s my boyfriend. the girls who sleep with me right away and expect me to wife them up always end up disappointed because i simply can’t bring myself to respect them enough. i was at the mall, and he asked if i wanted to see a movie. it sounds like he is definitely more than fwb, but he also sounds like he is slow to commit. my only concern was the age difference with me being a very mature 26 year old and him being 23 but i figured what the heck why not give it a shot. would really appreciate some feedback as it appears i cant think rationally anymore even though rationality was once my strong side with men. you need to let him know you are looking for more. more has happened and guess what i am still confused. if i had to guess i would say that he is confused or ambivalent about his ex, you, all of it..)im not going to text him bc i cant tell what is going on. even though he hasn’t said it i get the feeling she hurt him. he can’t tell me he sees me in the future but he also doesn’t deny it. if it’s not really ok, then it’s his job to tell you why. it's not that if all guys who would be interested in dating you will automatically be put off by this if it happens to them (though some will be), it's that these guys who manage to get into your pants on the first date and are also so pushy to get here probably aren't interested in anything beyond that. my facial expressions can be easily read and he could tell right away if i liked or didn’t like something and he right away changed it up and made it better. but yes, you are right, susan, i should tell him to get lost. i wouldn’t give it more than a few weeks, though – maybe a couple of months. he tells me that sex isn’t the only reason he likes me, and thinks i’m a good person. he’s gone out of his way to make clear that he doesn’t want anything more. the beginning it was kinda on and off, i stop talking to him for 3 weeks, i ignored his text messages until he called me and ask me for a second chance that he really miss me and wants to be with me so since that time its been steady. he said he cared about me and my feelings and that if i ever felt unsure of the situation all i had to do was text or call and he would reassure me.. i’m scared, what if he rejects meeting me, or what if he said he doesn’t know what to say anymore or anything. i have been in a 3 year relationship that was amazing, but then i came for an exchange program in a different country. if you enjoy his company and aren’t racing to get remarried, i don’t see what’s wrong with taking things slowly. susan i’m not sure if you are still answering post or not. he stopped me, introduced us, fixed us breakfast and told me he would like to see me “bond” with her if i was going to be “hanging around”. if you add sex to your strong feelings, it will be much, much harder if things don’t work out. over the phone is never a good way to have a serious conversation if you can help it. if he does not, i advise you to cut your losses. tell him you’ve been thinking about him, or how good it was to see him, and that you’d love to hang out again soon. if he found out that you have developed feelings for him, and he cut off the sex, that would be a blessing, because it would prevent further heartbreak for you. i wonder if i should let it go or tell him how i feel? we also have the most amazing sex i’ve ever had in my life…. that make me doubt:-he still tells me he isn’t ready for commitment (i know you’re set on the idea that if they don’t want to commit, they never will… but i feel like he will get there when he’s had time to recover. me and this guy were talking, hoping we could be more while getting to know eachother, i really liked him, i felt i more then liked him. don’t get me wrong we talk about everything and anything, he does tell me things like he had a lot of love for me and cares about me, i just got sick and he was calling and texting every five mins. he’s telling you he doesn’t want to get attached, and you need to believe him. but since we dated for 3 years, i feel like i don’t even know how to date anymore.“phone or not, i would think if he hadn’t lost that comfort, and if he was really interested in me, he would be calling even if from a pay phone. clearly you need to know the whole story, and you’re in the unfortunate position of having to ask him for more details, which feels like pressuring him, or waiting and wondering until he makes another move. he wants to give up but i don’t want him to. i don’t know what the outcome will be, or exactly what i am doing writing about it on this post, but if there is a voice out there that can offer my heavy heart and soul some words of wisdom, i would certainly listen. he tells me that he likes me a whole lot all the time. (of course he asked for my number so we could keep in contact about classes and such)i went to a party he was at and we danced together and he surprised me by telling me he wanted to kiss me ( we did ), then we all went back to the dorm together and hung out, just talking for hours. (there was some kissing involved as well 🙂 ) and he gave me some very nice compliments… *blushes*so for the next few weeks we would hang out and cuddle in his room and there was an occasional hookup or two- sometimes it would be after *some* drinking (no sex, i’m a virgin, but he isn’t- he knows that)then randomly after we sort of had a date(he asked me)- we went out to dinner and then hooked up completely sober- he stopped texting me. real problem with fwb is that no matter what rational boundaries are set, the hindbrain does what it wants, and odds are somebody’s going to want more. that said, if you get together with a guy who is not just in it for the sex, but nevertheless doesn't want any more from you than that, he just thought you didn't click. from my experience, if a girl is willing to sleep with you she’s at least curious about a possible relationship.@darleneof course it could be something more, and there’s a good way to find out. perhaps he is a catch, but that doesn’t do you any good if he refuses to be caught. susan,was wondering if perhaps you could help straighten out my thoughts. maybe it was his charger left home… a crazy week, i don’t know, but even the tone of his texts is more formal, yet interested. however here is the problem we hookup 3-4 times a week and each time it is hours on end like 12 bc thats when he gets off work until like 4 p.• tags: awkward, casual sex, date, dating, emotional intimacy, emotions, eye contact, fall, favorite things, friend, friendship, guys, hook up, hooking up, hookup, humor, hurdles, intimacy, open, perils, reassurance, relationship, relationships, romantic relationship, sex, sexual intimacy, signals, signs, talk, together.

How to tell if she wants more than a hookup

How to tell if she wants more than a hookup

i cannot tell you how many women have written to me giving those behaviors as examples of encouragement, only to have the guy say he doesn’t want a relationship. i saw him in a different light when he came back. if a girl is hot (which is determined by the body below the neck, if y’know what i’m sayin’), then i would hook up with them. difference is whether i feel guilty about fantasizing about her. i don't know if i should feel like shit because he turned to me as soon as he started having sex again, or flattered. tell him that you think he could be a very important person in your life, and that you are willing to give him time. how can he possibly know now whether he will want to commit or not…for some reason i have this idea that the more time we spend together, the more he will like me and he will magically end up falling for me. he started to pay me more attention starting where he had left off while in school. i took this that he was testing me to see if i’d respond or if i gave up on him. you’re young at 24 but you shouldn’t even consider spending a year or two with this guy if he’s not ready for something serious.“i just don’t understand what is wrong with me since he apparently loves so many things about me yet wants nothing apart from spending time and bed. the fact that she’s gorgeous on the outside too is just a bonus – i can’t help but feel a little smug. there is no way around the dreaded talk – that just creates a “don’t ask, don’t tell” situation – one that in my experience, nearly always works out poorly for the woman. i’m not sure if i was used for a ride or if he actually likes me and really wants me to move up there or what. more than that the truth is i’m overly analytical, like i’m the type to obsess over something and dissect it completely — like i literally cannot “go with the flow” — more than that i cant bring myself to ask him what is going on with him bc everytime the conversation moves that way he just avoids the question or manages to work around it. however, if we were at the same place, there is a chance of “something more developing” (whatever that might be). a girl i want to just hookup with i have no such problem and usually get down to business as soon as possible.[…] read this: 32 game-changing quotes about love and life that will make you feel better, instantly read this: 12 things you are

you can do is lead that kind of life regardless of whether he comes along – plays, music events, art shows, pep rallies, sports, mixers, you get the idea. so now he’s irritated because he wants me to tell him how much he means to me again like i did while we was in school.,i’m going to go in a bit different direction from susan, from the man’s perspective. we are both in grad school and life is very hectic)and you’re right. but she was only there for a few months into the start of our emails and i guess she left. i’ve seen many couples in similar circumstances find out a few months in that they had a very different understanding. trust me, if he liked you you would be on his mind constantly, he would be texting you for “maintenance”, as in, “to see how you’re doing” [or check up if youre hooking up with another brother] … id say see what the vibes are like while you guys are both on break and then see how it is when you go back to school, but in the end you should definitely stand up for yourself<3. if he liked you, he would be eager to make sure you know it so that you don’t get with another guy. patrick's day while he was under the influence of several different intoxicants. when i asked him if we were on the same page he said he likes me alot and not to worry about anything. if you like him, enjoy the time you spend with him, and let things develop naturally and without pressure. treating you differently than the rest is a sure sign of interest. if he’s able to pull girls whenever he wants, then he has options, and college guys with options rarely commit. first is our age difference, even though it is legal, i am 17 and he is 21. i’ve recently met his friends and he even mention that i need to come over more often in front of them (i rebutted by telling him to invite me over more). women don’t want it to be too easy – any whiff of eager or supplicating and our attraction nosedives. never defined our relationship, although he asked me once if i am using him just for sex and i said no. if he has feelings for you and fights them, he’s not emotionally available. that night i called and left him a voicemail asking if he wanted to see a movie. i really like him and want to tell him but i’m scared. they’re far more interested in investing their effort into sexual relationships. if he is looking to date casually and not let it get any more serious, then he’s happy as can be with the status quo. if a man can’t bother to talk to you during normal daytime hours, you have to ask yourself why is his so darn interested in you in the dead of the night, when he can hardly even see your face. i’ve been being chased by this guy i know, for a couple years now, and although, at first, i liked him, after a few months, decided that he was not for me, and short of telling him bluntly, “give it up, i’m not interested”, i’ve dropped every subtle– and obvious– hint that i can think of. material on the other hand, insofar as my subjective notion of it applies, is a girl who is creative, intelligent, fun, sweet, interesting, etc – all the things my girlfriend is. last night he almost didnt meet up with me to get food and when i commented that he seemed like he was still annoyed with me (from a tiff we got on on wednesday) he was like no i am just fine with being friends or soemthing like that…i do the same thing to him because i told him when i was hooking up with this other guy a month ago before him and i started having sex again…since we have been hooking up again i havent talked to the other guy at all. but they aren’t heartbroken, or even close, if it ends. how convenient that it matches mine 🙂 he knows more than i do about how guys operate – you’re lucky to have gotten feedback from him, so take it. if a guy likes you he should say so and be prepared to act on it. however, you shouldn't overdo it, because you may alienate an otherwise great guy who thinks you just string him along; and (question #5 above) if you have been dtf before but suddenly changed your approach, he may felt as if he was taken for a fool. i couldn’t believe how gorgeous she was and how much we connected. the only thing that

that if you have something casual with someone, stop and then pick up again at some future point, you should assume that it is still casual. reminds me… every time we’re at a party, the whole night his eyes are on me, and they oddly appear as if they’re smiling. friends saw me meet this boy at a small get together and tell me they think he genuinely likes me but i feel that its because he is a lot nicer than my ex. he asked lots of questions about me, my life, family and education, which he’s never done before. i could really use a different perspective because i’d really like to know what you think! we talked once a couple days after that, a basic “hi, how are you” talk and after that i didn’t see him at all for about a week during which time i decided i was probably just a failed one night stand for him, but this past week hes said hi to me a couple times, the first time i ignored him, then felt bad and the second i just said hi back, and i think he wants to talk to me. he’ll always text me and see what i’m doing and seems interested in my life stories. like i said before he places a premium on looks, particularly in his relationships (i am the first non-relationship that he has had) all his ex girlfriends were tall, goregous, blonde, blue eyed, classically beautiful. they’re like super bff and my friends think thy flirt etc bc she’s safe. he holds me as if he really cares about me. i now finally feel like i am very confident, happy, and at a great place in my life. i would put it on hold and risk this opportunity if it was more clear this is heading towards

i could get the best feedback from you as is possible!!i just wondered if maybe i could get a little insight on my current situation. if they hit on me, she tells me that he gets really jealous and the look on his face is like he’s gonna kick their ass. asked me if i’d flashed my breasts at him…. you’re smart to go down about 5 years if you can – those women are so fed up with players and guys keeping their options open, they’ll jump at a chance to be with an older guy if they’re looking for a relationship. i know you said that is better to have the conversations in person but if i don’t heard from him by next week, do you think i should call him and ask if i was just a fling for him? if he wants to make the commitment, that this is something real and serious, and that you are going to be in each other’s lives, you will embark on a whole new relationship that should include a lot more than being in bed together., defense, it has been one hell of a ride, but he stands challenged by judgemental society and his father’s opposition to it all, our administration counts on me to overcome this phase in my life, and wants me to stabalize, and a. making out was great but the sex was a flop from my perspective (i was clearly more experienced). he’s more than just a hook-up, but not a boyfriend. i’ve heard that means a guy wants the company of a girl but at the same time wants his distance. – can’t wait to tell your friends you met her. i'm falling for my hookup and i'm sure if he's falling for me. i don’t know if your still even answering this question but i came across it in hopes of answering my situation. im just confused i just wantvto know if he likes me and how i can play this right. regarding your list – if by “falling for” you mean falling in love, i think that might be a bit soon in my case. would he not want to define the relationship if i meant something more to him than just a companion and someone to kill time with? i found out he was on a dating website meeting other girls, but he would say ” don’t worry it’s not going to work out” i don’t know why he kept telling me that. if you want to know the answer, you’re going to have to ask the question. out of the blue he tells me  last week that he misses me and wants to come to be with me. now we are done with college both hanging out, still flirting, and eventually lots of sexual tension lead to a really hot hookup (w/ sex).@claireif he has said he doesn’t see any point in meeting, that there is nothing to talk about, then anything you try to do or say will just annoy him. step

was to him and he’s glad he lost it to me” he said he also had butterflies when we spent the day together and mentioned how he wants to see me all the time” oh and he had to go home one night for some family occasion and he said ”i dont want to go. would be great since you seem to be so good at it and i am so new to this whole “single” thing… it seems like every guy these days wants nothing but a hook up buddy. i’m assuming this is the whole friends with bennifits deal? topicsdating love dating advice dating in college hooking up in college random hookups. if a guy knows that the is not committed and can pull back at any time, or have sex with someone else, he may thoroughly enjoy your company in all the ways you describe. felt like i had soo many questions and decided to send him an email basically telling him that what i wrote before wasn’t what i meant and what i meant was that i enjoyed our friendship before and i realize that i can’t do the in between because i can’t handle it and i have feelings. you find out it wasn’t dating when he hooks up with someone else, which is his right if there was no official commitment. he plans for us both three months ahead, cooks for me all the time, tells me things he never told to anyone before, is eager to cover all the bills up and prioritizes me in bed always, suggested to meet my child.  he again started on about what we were doing, if everything was ok etc. my facial expressions can be easily read and he could tell right away if i liked or didn’t like something and he right away changed it up and made it better. we often flirted thru texts and had plans of meeting up just never did because of our schedules being so different. the circumstances, im hoping he’d decided what he wants and weighed out the options before even trying to get involved with me again. move on and give someone else a chance, someone who likes you and wants to be with you. reading this i was thinking about a guy i have been seeing, in a casual, physical manner (sporadically over long time), but last time i saw him things went different. and today understands what went wrong, but if i get too close to him, although he says that he wants to work on our marriage, he gets angry and lashes out at me. he sounds very confident, so if he is interested he will pursue. so either he feels that way, which would be okay i’d guess cuz it sounds like you feel the same, or else he’s trying to tell you he loves you but is using the word heaps to protect himself. moving along here, a, started to keep his distance from me after things got really difficult for me, and during a few life challenges. experience tells you that the prize inside is going to disappoint, but it’ll all be worth it that one time when the box has tickets to hawaii in it. if this is a case of arrested development, you’d be better off ending it.

my head was a little fucked before, due to being screwed over and hurt in the past (if you didn’t already guess that when i said i’d been single by choice for nearly a decade). him: i can’t tell how well his behavior correlates to his actions. (why she came to my room to cuddle i’d be massively confused about). if he really had respected me and had feelings for me wouldn’t that question not make sense? now, i know that you have been answering about alot of different situations, so i suppose i will ask about mine too (as brief as possible ;] ). it wasn’t in a drunk way all of a sudden, it was in an intensified and serious tone. you can call a guy your boyfriend, you should be able to tell him what you’re feeling.  a part of me feels like he genuinely wants this to work, but something else makes me feel like he might not be as interested as i am. difference is whether i tell my friends about our sex life. he would never admit to me that mary was his girlfriend, even though everyone said she was. which he always really wants to assure me that nothing will happen again. he is an upper classmen and has been heartbroken by a girl that he was with for a few years so i dont know if he likes me or if he is trying to play me. since then, he has been texting me consistently every day, showing a complete interest in my life, wanting to know everything thats going on, shows concern for my kids, sends me pictures of his kids and little projects they are working on around the house. with a girl i'm interested in on a deeper, relationship level, i always try to have a real conversation with her and try to get to know her a lot more than if i just want to hook up with her. now, we’re talking even more often, like we’re up all night. if things are going well and you’re seeing each other regularly (even if it is only for sex), she takes this as a sign that you want to see her, and things are progressing. he said that he was sorry if he seemed distant right now and that his entire life is changing, so that’s all he can focus on at the moment. but isn’t that the moment when you don’t care what others think anymore, and you say how you really feel? however, the bottom line is that it doesn’t do you any good if he is determined to remain unattached. if this is your boyfriend, he’s not acting like a very good one. even if you’re not sure how it will play out, you obviously want to try and make a go of it, or you wouldn’t be worried about scaring him off. they aren’t in a relationship but she’s romantically involved with him. so if he ever did cheat i would never be able to find out. of the most common questions we get from you guys is this: “how can i tell if he wants a relationship or just wants to hook up?'s of course – so he seems – quite mortified about what has happened (him not showing up, nor calling). is there any possibility this could be more, or am i just naive? know this forum is intended for girls, but i feel that you could probably help shed some light on my situation. do not look for signs that he likes you as a substitute for his telling you directly. i don’t know whether he used you and wants more, but it seems like he is asking you to make a big change without putting in any effort himself. i’ve been told that he does but he is ‘afraid of commitment’ or something, i understand he was traveling before and have always been understanding of that and that could be a reason why he was the way he was, and i’ve heard that if a guy isn’t financially/emotionally ready, he’ll push any girl away, even if he really cares, and who knows maybe he’ll come back when he’s ready. if he has feelings for you, that’s not the case, but you don’t know that. is it too soon to tell him i’m falling for him? he discussess that he is inlove with this same girl who is mu friend and she ddoesnt want to be wih him because her friends and family dont like him. they broke up two months later because she didn’t like his relationship with me and then cheated on him. i was worried he would stop hanging out with me when i gave him that answer … but if anything, he has been more caring and thoughtful since that happened.“it is like he wants to feel in love instantly.” if there is a more obvious way a man shows you his intentions, please enlighten me, because this is the smoking gun. it sounds like you are falling for him, so you need to know asap if he feels the same way. we have talked a few times and texted maybe once or twice…i don’t know if this guy likes me or what! if you do wind up in the same place, you can pursue the relationship. he’s even looking for some extra jobs now (i hope i didn’t get him all bankrupt) and wants to take me to a place i promised my granddad i’ll visit (far far, expensive expensive)… he wants to get a bigger flat as well for some reason.  i would like to try and talk to him over the weekend to find out how he really feels but not sure how to do this or even if any of this means more than just fb. well, every time i would tell him i’m talking to a guy he would say ” don’t date him” or always say something like oh he’s too old. if not, how can i keep him interested in me? you must ask him before you get any more invested, and be prepared to walk, because i don’t think the sex you’re having is at all casual for you. she was fine with it and we enjoyed each others company affectionately cuddling, kissing and talking for several hours.“how do i tell him i want to go on dates and not just hang out in his room. this may have played itself out by now, but in general i tell women that if you have to wonder if a guy likes you, he doesn’t. my problem is he seems to be giving me mixed signals, because we have such a clear communication on what is best for our situatuation, but he is acting and treating me differently than just a hook up. men don’t consider wife material until they’ve got the radar screen on. if he does reply, and wants to go out, tell him that sunday is now booked (at this point, he shouldn’t have a random-access claim on your time hours in advance). this guy just wants the ego reinforcement of knowing you like him because he saw you as a challenge. if he is into hook ups, and has done so in the past, why am i any different? i think you should tell him how you feel about him but that you deserve honesty and respect. at that point, ask him what he is thinking, and if he is determined to keep it casual, walk away.. and he did tell me he loved me once and keeps in touch. he finally called and asked me if i wanted to go on a date with him. thats what i got based on what you said) means he waited quite a bit to hook up with you – so obviously he invested time and thought you were a real prospect if hes going to wait that long. first few times together were kinda that “booty call” sex, but then it has kinda shifted to more passionate, almost intimate sex. i say i’m confused cause sometimes all he wants to do is talk about sex.[…] 25 men answer “what’s the difference between a girl you read this: 25 men answer “what’s the difference between a girl you date and a girl you just hook… read this: i’m one of those moms that’s breastfeeding her. if he doesn’t reply, obviously he’s a cold case and you have to let it go. he even brought up to me in front of his friends something like, “if we were living together, would you do this ______”. i have mixed feelings myself, but i want something more than casual- i would like to be exclusive, hang out more, and get to know hm better. do like him, but if there are not some other flavours coming through from him whenever he gets back to town, i will just keep liking him from a distance, and keeping it friendly, as you said! i said i would be willing to do that if it was the one (i don’t like my area anyway! by the way, it’s just rude that she failed to respond to an invitation to a concert, and you should hold that against her. about a week ago he left my place in the morning (and at thus time we hadn’t slept together yet) he texted me asking how i feel about him and if i’m falling for him. i like his personality and just the way he lives his life. he’s wanted more from the start, and now you’re starting to have feelings for him. on the otherhand i can’t decide if i should bring it up to him how i feel about him or just wait for him to come to me. unless he has specifically stated that he wants something different this time, i think you can assume he’s recycling the old deal. tell him that you want to continue to spend time together and get to know each other better. so i would be very surprised if he is not emotionally invested. who has known us since the beginning says there’s no way he doesn’t have feelings and that it’s obviously not about the sex if he rarely makes a move even though we see each other a few times a week. before we slept together i told him i wasn’t a slut and he said he wasn’t either, but if it feels right, let’s try and see. perhaps he can let you know, even if he can’t commit right now, whether this is something that you should plan your career around, even temporarily. men don’t say that if they don’t mean it. he very clearly tried to figure out how close i still was with my ex, and if i was with another one of our mutual friends., i like him very much; but i like me more. you already know he will commit to someone he is really into, so if he won't by your boyfriend, then…. if he doesn’t, it’s better that you know what’s up, so that you can decide the best way to proceed. the fact that he treated you poorly and kept his difference after you had sex tells you everything you need to know. the point is, we spend so much time together, he shows me he cares in numerous ways, wants to take me out, on trips, do everythign with me, his friends and mother know of me and he alwys tries to make me happy. there’s something unfortunate (and perhaps unfair) that the person who feels more gets blamed. he treats me nice and everything but i still wont let it grow to something more so i`ll talk to him about it and see how it`ll all work out in the end. is this guy confused, screwed up, not into me, the two times he brings up the conversation about us he trys to see whats happening and if all is ok etc but we just go round in circles. if he’s in tears he should be relieved and thrilled that you want to be his gf. she does something with you that she doesn’t do with other guy friends, she’s interested in you in a different way. i realized then that i don’t want to be that girl who gives years to a guy who decides late that she isn’t the right girl for him and leaves her and finds someone else. if he met someone tomorrow he wanted to see or have sex with, he would end it with you in a heartbeat, no?! but seriously, this highlights how men and women view marriage in radically different ways. it just doesn’t work to spend this kind of time together and have no idea what the other person is thinking, especially if you find yourself bonding with him. he has had many monogamous relationships, some of which he would classify her as a girlfriend and some not. if you have a date for wednesday, he will likely be in touch monday or tuesday to confirm and make arrangements. the other thing you can do is just let him set the pace, but if you like him, and you think the ex is a real factor, i wouldn’t recommend it. ”that was him telling you he wants to be in a relationship with you. you might say, “hey, i was wondering if you’re seeing other people. but he continued to text and call and ask if we can have dinner, i kept saying no. during the first few months, from what i know, he met up with different girls but since new years, it has only been me. so that kind of leads me to believe that he’s interested in the “hook-up” more than anything. if he isn’t suffering the same way, he’s likely to just maintain the status quo. if you want to do that for yourself, i think that’s great, but don’t do it because he tells you to. if you stop having sex with him, i predict he will vanish completely, but i hope i’m wrong. i assume he still has one or two on the side, which he doesn’t really tell me about, as he says its not important." you definitely need to know if he's hooking up with others girls, especially if you are having sex. if he says “no relationship” i advise you to end it immediately, before you get even more hurt..whenever we hang out he tells me how much he likes me. if he did get hurt by the previous gf, he may not be ready for another commitment. i asked him several times if this is what he wanted and he said yes.  he text me after he t to ask if i was ok and i said well, yes but you did upset me. in the beginning he would tell me that he is like this with all his friends and likes making them feel good. on the other hand, he may be falling for you and wanting more. wonder if you ever wanted no strings attached, that saying that was just a negotiating technique or a defense mechanism to keep yourself for getting too attached too early. if you are ok with just being friends, and you don’t want to risk that, you can continue to wait or just figure he’s never going to make a move. if i make a decision now i could 1- lose a good man because i’m afraid of getting hurt or 2- i could stick it out and end up getting hurt. up – can’t wait to tell your friends you fucked her. we got chatting online and told him if he’s not too busy he could come to my friends and the three of us could just hang out. if you don’t, then it sounds like the relationship would probably end. she has never said anything about not wanting attachment, and if her friend hadn’t told me that i would think we were heading straight for a relationship. he then said that he was a loser and going nowhere with his life and that i deserve someone better than him.

10 Signs That Your Hookup is Falling For You * Hooking Up Smart

if you act as though you’re down for being the booty-call, then darlin’, unless this man loves you like noah loved allie, you will be the booty-call. if he doesn’t want to nail it down, i’d walk and not look back. we haven’t had the talk but seem rather to make faint inplications of interest and intent; i’m not sure what either of us wants! if a guy considers you a booty-call, he will, more often than not, refuse to go out with you. there are so many guys willing to treat me right and take me out properly so if he’s not willing i dont want to settle for less- but i find it so hard to find someone i actually like… and i really liked/like him. if he does make a move, be careful that he isn’t just going for a one-time thing. i decided that i was ready to move on and meet different people. if he is settled down with his girlfriend why does he care about saying hello to me and passing hello messages on to his sister 3 years later? for the advice, i kind of think the same but one feels more comfortable when ideas are confirmed by someone from outside the problem, who sees it in an unbiased manner. the only answer is for you to tell him clearly that you don’t think the two of you would be good together. and the age difference is pretty large at your age. then life pulled us different ways, him to another part of the country for schooling and i with a 4 year relationship. currently, we have hung out a lot more, just the two of us, or with his friends, or mine.’m keeping my cool, i’m scared to tell him how i fee this early because i don’t want to lose him. i asked him if i were to walk away, if he’d care. i had a feeling that she wasn’t going to be there any longer or he lost interested. and if you do hear the worst, then cut him off 100%. i even heard him telling our mutual friends that he started flirting/liking his roommate’s sister.” however, there’s a very wide berth between hooking up and getting married, so there’s nothing wrong with getting a little deeper into things if you are feeling more intensity. he is always texting me, he tells me that he misses me through out the day, has a nickname for me, he comes over after he is done with work, picks me up from work sometimes, has introduced me to his daughter and close friends which he considers family. if he is not interested in a relationship, the sooner you learn that the better. in the meantime, it’s not realistic to expect chit chat texts, especially if he’s already said he likes to take things slowly. i’ve been told that he does but he is ‘afraid of commitment’ or something, i understand he was traveling before and have always been understanding of that and that could be a reason why he was the way he was, and i’ve heard that if a guy isn’t financially/emotionally ready, he’ll push any girl away, even if he really cares, and who knows maybe he’ll come back when he’s ready. kissed passionately…(no sex, nor did he pressure or ask me for it unlike our first date when we kissed and he sort of “tested” me and asked if wanted to spend the night). i’m not even sure if i want it to happen again (i’m looking for something fun, not serious, after that 2 year relationship. i’m a firm believer that if it’s meant to be, it’ll happen and be, and if not, i’m okay with that., you left a bolded sentence above regarding other indicators he has feelings, and i believe, though have yet to confirm, these are also indicators that a hookup is falling.“now i dont know how to take it back… im not sure i want a boyfriend but i want him to know not to be afraid to tell me if he likes me. r meeting this friday so i will let you know if i make the move hehe…thank you! it sounds like he was attentive when it was strictly fwb, and perhaps less attentive now that you want more? why can’t he tell me how he feels, instead of wanting me to put my feelings on the line and pleasing him? guys explain how to tell if he just wants to hook up and doesn’t want to date you.:oh im sorry didnt know u were on crutches :/ if i had seen u i would have offered some help. but i’m afraid if i ask, i will come off as too “much”…. if i decide to ask a girl out on a proper date in the first place i’ve probably already decided that i can easily see myself with her for a while. we talked more and got nowhere other than me being stupid and sticking it out still. i dont even know if the reason really was the girl. i sort of thought he would either go all in, in which case, i would and could include him in my life plans and find a way of staying in the country and we could work on being together, or all out, in which case i could do whatever i please and know i am free.: idk i feel like you’re avoiding my question — if youre not just say so and ill drop it. do you know when a guy just wants to hook up? this is unfair to you if you would rather move forward! this conversation went late into the night, until he finally asked if it would be absurd to come over. it’s like telling a game show contestant not to take the mystery box. if you don’t get clarification on this you are setting yourself up for a huge disappointment. real problem with fwb is that no matter what rational boundaries are set, the hindbrain does what it wants, and odds are somebody’s going to want more.  at what point do you stop giving the guy more chances? doubt it’s true that he had never thought about it when you asked him, but obviously didn’t want to get into a heavy conversation about it at that time, particularly if he was unsure of your feelings. just a couple days ago our “relationship” became more sexual … i am wondering if this is a sign that i could mean more to him, since i said before i didn’t want a sexual relationship unless it meant more to him. if i’ve been talking to a woman for “about a month,” and she and her friends invited me to a party, and then she refused to kiss me when we were alone, i’d take that as a serious rejection and that i had been friend-zoned.  he asked if i’d told anyone about us and i said yes a couple of friends, i asked him if he has told anyone and he said, exactly  “no i don’t think its a good idea to tell my kids as they would get upset and think i don’t have time for them or that someone will take time away from them” um i never asked if he’ told his kids and wouldn’t have expected him too, i haven’t told mine about him either. he is too, but let’s face it, a woman’s number carried more weight, and possible backlash, than a man’s. i really have no idea what this guy is on……we have all the hypothetical conversations and well what if this or that happened. after he left he limited conversation and to 2 times a week and he never start texting me and if i do he will answer with long delay or call me the day after that. i told him if it counted or anything i had spent all day thinking of ways to bond with his daughter and he told me that that meant alot.-he gets really jealous and sad if i text a guy friend. to tell if a girl wants to hook up with you, or just be friends. for the record, talking on the phone all the time is not any form of commitment or sign that he wants you for more than a f*ckbuddy. is he adamant that he wants to keep it casual? i said if things flow in a certain direction and it feels right and worthy, my life is flexible… hi smiled wide. the gap between “hookup-worthy” and “couple-worthy” is usually a lot smaller. fast forward 3 years later and i heard that he has settled down with a new girlfriend and about a month ago i get a message from his sister who now works where i do and she said ‘by the way my brother says hello to you! i mustered up the strength and asked him if we could progress and become official today and he said. he seems interested, so i guess i’ll find out one way or another about what he wants from me – other than the hu if anything. don’t take the flirtation as indication that he likes you, unless there are specific actions that back it up.. if you vocalize “i don’t want a relationship” you think you won’t fall for him. if he or you remain adamant that a relationship is not a good idea, then i can’t see anything but heartache ahead for at least one of you. if he is not willing to give it, you walk. similarly, your experience tells you that most drunken random sexual partners will range from “mediocre” to “above average,” but the fantasy of going home with the double-jointed gymnast overpowers that. i know i should be more open with him, but i don’t want to scare him away. i wouldn’t be surprised if he checked in on thursday or friday. he said he was fine with it but i could tell he really wanted to get close. yet i’m feeling unsure about things, about what i want, and what he wants. every girl is comfortable going after a hookup fearlessly and blatantly. but if you made a graph of the times he initiated, would the line be declining sharply? if he still says he doesn’t want anything serious, and says to let him know if you decide you want to stop, then he is clearly signalling that he has no intention of making a commitment. (if he broke your heart, that’s a different story. so we got together, and ultimately it ended in us having sex, really really great sex if i do say so myself! i don’t really have any doubts that he is interested in me, and likes me, but i want to know how to realize if he is in it for sex, or for more. you can’t force him into anything else if that’s what he wants (don’t get all alex forest in fatal attraction on the poor guy). he kept asking if i was ok and he brought me water & stuff after i got sick. i’m willing to take that plunge if there’s a sufficient amount of chemistry between us, but i am not the type of person who will date for the sake of dating. and he said we were exclusively seeing one another and only sleeping with one another)he wants to be introduced to my friends and hinted to me a few weeks ago “i think its really cool when a girl asks a guy out. it feels like she thinks she is out of my league. like honestly it needs to be jam-packed in a book because this is an excellent practical application to all of life’s relationships. i hope things will eventually work out with us and that at some point he will be ready to commit but i just dont know…can you please help me out and shed some light on the situation i am in? he hasn’t ever really declined unless he has other plans or something, but i am wondering if it could possibly be one-sided. i would like to be exclusive and start a relationship, so maybe i should just give it more time. she’ll usually get a simple majority of desirable traits, but it usually takes a super-majority to push into the dating zone. here’s why: if he doesn’t want a relationship, he will say so and you will be free to end it and find someone more compatible.: shutterstock one guy says he'll try to have sex right awaylithelmraspberry: if i'm just trying to hook up then i'll try to initiate sex upon first meeting you. difference is whether she has more than sexual chemistry with me. even bringing up stuff in the past that i told him because he remembers everything i tell him. he considers us friends, nothing more, nothing less and that he wanted us on the same page. he had a lot to tell me, but i guess never an excuse to talk again so i let him vent it out. i would say that if you can hang in there for a while and see where this goes it might be worth a shot. again i’d like to say before, during, and after the intimate time, we still had a full on conversation catching up and he was still asking me questions and questions still wanting to know more about me. when we are together he tells me that he is going to take me on trips away and says he likes me, and talks all about his family and gets excited about me meeting them etc. if he doesn’t seem to care, he’s not serious about seeing you again. and how can i tell him about my concerns without seeming like i’m blaming him, or scaring him off? in other words, he already knows if he likes you, and now you just have to find out. when he’s being super intimate, comment that he’s acting like a lot more than a fuckbuddy and see what he says. he smiles at me when i look back at him and it makes me feel quite embarrased :o also after we have sex he wants to hold me and kiss me, he wants to make conversation afterwards also. now, he was not married at the time he first began pursuing me- he broke up w/ his now wife, for a time, in order to do it, but then, a few months later, decided to marry her because he accidentally knocked her up. your friends may have a point if you two are holding back on going to full partner status due to anxiety, personal hangup, etc, but in my experience people who are “meant to be together” want to integrate their lives and bring each other into their social circles. guys are in different cities right now for the break yes? so either way, if i make a decision i see myself getting hurt so it’s much easier to have someone make this decision for me that way i can’t hold myself accountable. it is confusing because before i gave into hanging out with him, as more than friends, it was always him texting me asking to hang out. a month ago he asked me if i wanted to be “friends with benefits” i told him i didn’t want if it wasn’t going to mean anything more than that to him. i had a conference to go to and during the entire weekend of my conference we were texting back and forth, and he hinted essentially that he was worried i might catch the eye of another guy during my conference, and that he cared about me beyond a hookup level. the girls he flirts with he tells me that they are just his friends or are his friends girlfriends. girls need to make their wishes and expectations clear if they don’t want to fall into the fake bf trap. if he really had respected me and had feelings for me wouldn’t that question not make sense? difference is she makes you care about more than just sex. we emailed back and forth just once every while, while he was traveling just to see how he was doing and then all of a sudden i didn’t hear from him anymore. the only times i pursue it are if i’ve met a girl and we just seem to click in multiple ways. the more you know someone the more you know whether you want a relationship with them. first, i think i should tell you i’m 29 years old woman who has never had any kind of (romantic) relationship with any man. he is very attentive when i have life problems, and he listens and tries to help me come up with solutions. however, if you are really starting to fall for him, get out now. it is like he wants to feel in love instantly.), does not seem to care much about learning what things i like, does not seem to want to see me more than once per week, has never complimented me, and his profile is still on the online site (mine is as well…).

How to Tell if You're Potential Girlfriend or Just His Hook-Up Buddy

he then texed me that me and him have no future in bf or gf but if i would like a mess around with him then he would be fine with it. after that one serious conversation, the good signs he’s shown, and the short time we’ve been dating (7 weeks) i do not want to ask any more because it would feel pushy and i just want to let things flow and feel natural, but i get confused with some other signals and do not want to drive myself into falling hard for somebody who is not available… i’d appreciate your comments! work, his age, his indifference and the intensity of what i feel for him, and what a does not feel for me is soul consuming. if you’re reasonably attractive, not a total bore/annoyance, and interested, you can make it happen. he won’t give me straight answers, which if he was a normal guy i would know what that meant but he is not normal! he said our friendship is more important than anything so if i can’t have a physical relationship with him and be friends than we could just be friends alone. to elite daily's official newsletter, the edge, for more stories you don't want to miss.. what should my course of action be, at the end of the night when she kissed me we agreed we would see each other wednesday, since she will be busy for the rest of the weekend since she has another midterm tomorrow. i eventully dumped my bf and told him that asked if he still want be with me had suppose be meeting him that weekend as i had told him that planned to end it with bf which i did but then he said he was busy and said he had went to ireland on wesday was gonna be back on monday away as needed a break suppsely family problems was getting to him but did not tell me what so i left few msgs then did not heard much back until friday night had asked if i wanted meet him the next day near where i live and if wanted to be with him then that was fine so i said i did and went meet him went for a walk hold my hand and had kiss but ended up went back to his house spent weekend there sat watch tv offered to buy me food for dinner but did not know what wanted so got an takeaway things seemed fine watched tv ended up in bed still kissed and hugged me but mostly i had do it first said i should go home on fri night late on as i had not told my mum about us know i was seeing someone but thought it was an friendship i did not like the idea and i felt like he was trying get rid of me so then on saturday i was in bad mood asked me what was up said nothing then kept asking said i had wanted to stay said it made sense to go home and tell mum and that he would try see me next weekend so we went for a walk and then i was suppose to go home but could see i was still mad so end up he said i could stay though was like i don’t know if got enough food for us both(was near a shopping centre and i know he had some food in it) but he said ok can stay and went and got some food though he seemed abit less affectionate but still was some affection but he kept txting said was woman friends but it was annoying as was most of night until later on he turned off phone went to bed hugged into him watched tv went to sleep odd kiss hug etc so then on sunday i was still abit mad as did not say anything about the txts though could see i was mad kept asking what was wrong said nothing eventully gave up and did not kiss or hug me until i kissed him so went out for a walk then pretty eary he said i should go home coz of buses and such gave me an hug and kisses before i got on train said see me later though still don’t txt me unless i txt him speak mostly on msn i have asked him if he thinks moved to fast or what he thinks about me says that ive to stop worrying we don’t really talk about much but when together he will make jokes and tease me very touchy feely in public but never really said he liked me or said i look good or such asks odd time how iam, what been up to though since sunday not been on msn much as he says he has family thing to sort out and could take all week txt him a few times txted bk but never txts me first or never has called me sorry for long msg but basically do you think this guy is interested in me or just after sex ? well he ended up moving 2 hours away for a job and we text all the time and he says he wants me to move there with him and keeps asking and asking. if he is still attracted to you, he may initiate a conversation about your past. if he doesn’t but seems apologetic or remorseful, give him a later day that works. i said i would be willing to do that if it was the one (i don’t like my area anyway! i dont know how to take it back… im not sure i want a boyfriend but i want him to know not to be afraid to tell me if he likes me. but i am begginning to fall for him and i want to see if we are on the same page. guess is that he is enjoying your company and wanting to spend time with you but might balk if pressed for a commitment. he has clearly stated that he likes you and wants to keep dating. in the start it was supposed to be casual but as time went on the texting,calling and time we spend together has become a lot more frequent…like multiple times a week seeing eachother and texting everyday(but he hardly will ever text me first)now this has progressed over the last year. but when she wasn’t there, we’d sleep in and he offered that i stay there while he went to work and just “lock up before i left”.. if you feel very strongly about him, it might be better to cool it for a while – not hang out so much, and pursue the friendship when you're really over him. so now i realize that i have some feelings for him and i dont want it to just be sex, but i dont know if i should ask him how he feels straight out or what sort of signs i should look for…. i had been keeping it a secret, but he apparently told a bunch of his friends while i was gone the whole story, but said he had no feelings anymore. he may or may not be telling the truth but i feel it doesn’t correlate with how we were all these years. clinginess is never appealing to guys, so learning to be more independent will serve you well in the future. then, he’s texted me about twice a week with random things, asking my opinion on his hair or an outfit, or telling me he had work early like me, etc. i do not know if that would influence his character. he was always concerned about my feelings- even more than i was, so he was very aplogetic and seemed to want to be honest because guilt ruined him. i think that if you are experiencing all of the above with a guy early on, that’s an excellent prospect. has just come out of a year and half relationship as well that was heading towards marriage but he cheated on her (not with me) by accident and she broke it off and it left him incredibly wounded. we started the night off at 5pm, and she didn’t leave until 8am the next morning (no sex).  if you sleep with a guy before you really get to know each other then that is all he will be looking forward to is my belief.  am i that daft, have i been played or is there more to this than meets the eye. if he doesn’t respond to your texts and emails, stop sending them! he claims he really wants to be friends no matter what happens because he wants a relationship in the future when i have freedom to go out with him and his friends, but i have grown feelings for him now. a few days later my roommate and i went to his apartment and hung out, and he asked if i wanted to be “fuck buddies”. and what i like that most is that he remembers everything i tell him about me. cringed when i read this because it seems crystal clear to me that if, after 3 yrs, your only clues about how he feels relate to his sexual repertoire, then he’s only in it for the sex. but, does it even matter if we are just friends with benefits? i found out she was single and sent her a message on facebook, so i guess you could say this was basically the first time we had ever really spoke to each other.. but again a week ago he was encouraging me to meet other guys and hook up and i was like ‘why are u telling me to do this do u really want me to? difference is the presence of a super-majority of attractive traits. so the girl didnt like me she picked cause i guess she was threatend by me but there was no need cause i had made up my mind to let him go. but if you really need to make a decision, then your only choice is to have a very honest discussion with him. venting is more towards guys and why they are the way they are. if going on dates is something you want in your relationship then you should be concerned about it for sure. if you like him, though, and you want more than friendship, i think you are going to need to give him a nudge.. there’s something unfortunate (and perhaps unfair) that the person who feels more gets blamed. i told him i had a one night stand in another country with some guy i met while traveling, no big deal, i thought, but i told him because he wanted to know if i was with anyone while he had been gone. but if you’re the booty-call, you’ll look as irrelevant as all his other followers and friends. you like him, you’ll need to ask him what he wants. his “girlfriend” is the same girl that he dated in college broke up with every other day and now she lives in europe (we live in the us). hung out a couple more times and then, about two weeks ago he came into a room i was in with his friends studying. she saw me and him together once and he was upset she saw me. i’m kind of worried now because at first i was only interested in a casual hookup but he is such a nice guy, and we have spent the last couple of nights just getting to know each other and just laying in each other’s arms talking all night. my mind says no but my heart and soul tell me there’s something in this still. i finally asked him when he was leaving the country and he told me next week he was going and it crushed me. there’s nothing wrong with being the one to bring it up – it’s on your mind and you would like to clarify it and be able to chill out about it. i know that i can’t control what he thinks about me after the fact… but, is it possible to establish a more meaningful connection after the “lid is off of the jar”? and if he’s not into doing the things you are, then you may have to accept you have limited compatibility. only evidence i really have to base this on is the following: 1) she’s never made an attempt to contact me but does respond to text messages reasonably quickly 2) i left her a voicemail yesterday about a concert tonight and have yet to recieve a response. but it seems every time i think i have he sweet talks his way back into my life ans does the same tjing. as a freshman, you’re already pulling girls so you will probably do well in the hookup scene. i didnt ask for his number b/c i was nervous the next day when i left but i stayed over there until late the next afternoon and he drove me 30 minutes home to my house made comments the whole way that he hopes there was traffic so he could spent more time w/ me ect. i have asked him before if he has done this with any of his other sex buddies and he says that he has, but yet when we went over to his friends house they said it was nice to see him with a girl for a change. if he fell for you as you are, he has no right to ask you to change your appearance – that would be like you demanding he get jacked at the gym. we both put a slight guard up b/c i guess he feels the way i do…he doesn’t want to fall if this goes nowhere..Do you think i should ask him why he is not making move or if he just sees me as a friend? if there's continuing drama there, you do not want to play a role. if by wanting to be with you, he means a full-blown relationship, you might agree to discuss it with him first and see if you both want the same thing. after we hooked up he stayed for like four more hours trying to get to know me and cuddling with me, and during our conversations he would randomly touch my arm, hair, kiss me, etc…  how do i know if he is just interested in hooking up or if he may eventually want more? but isn’t it best to know sooner and not waste any more of your precious youth on false intimacy lovers.” if you’re a booty-call and you want to go the movie, you better believe you’ll be sitting in that theatre hugging your popcorn instead of a guy. he gets upset still though if i go out with friends or if he finds out another guy is interested in me. life in your late 20s read this: 25 things every woman should have by the time she turns 25 read this: 25 men answer “what’s the difference between a girl you date and a girl you just hook… read this: 32 game-changing quotes about love and life that will make you feel better, instantly […]. for example, maybe she doesn’t normally text guys first but she’s texting you first. i know you don’t want to waste your time, but it sounds like he needs more time, and that’s not surprising after only three weeks. also, no woman lost interest in a guy for not initiating sex right away unless she was just looking for something casual. do you think i should ask him why he wants me to move up there? after we were married, 1 year into the marriage, he stopped having sex with me, and kept photos of his x-wife of 15 years in a shoe box in our bedroom closet, not to mention old cards, letters and photes of his x-wife, even as i threw them out after i discovered them, he kept digging them out of the trash. difference is how many of a man’s standards you meet. when i say i've seen how he looks at me i mean i see longing, like he wants to get closer but something is holding him back. do i leave him alone and see if he comes to me? but all that time he was more than obviously staring at me in a way that suggested he found me attractive. i don’t know how much hurt i can keep taking from him in hopes that we’ll be something more in the future. then he texts if i want to be buddies with him with benefits.“but several other friends’ comments have made me wonder if we are actually meant to be together, due simply to the fact that we’ve carried on for so long. i really don’t know if he feels anything for me. this is doubly difficult during the holidays since the school schedule is so chopped up. if the roommate is female, that’s completely different, and is all about his fun. even bringing up stuff in the past that i told him because he remembers everything i tell him. texted here and there, if he texted first…it was usually sexual. next day he tells me about a girl he’s arranged a date with. if you don’t wait, then by definition you settle. he has told you point blank that he sees you as a friend and nothing more. but several other friends’ comments have made me wonder if we are actually meant to be together, due simply to the fact that we’ve carried on for so long. i could really use a different perspective because i’d really like to know what you think! if a girl took an emotional shine to me it was a turnoff. he said he was fine with it but i could tell he really wanted to get close. if you put out but get rejected, youre most likely annoying, or just to easy to pass up.) he holds my hand, gives me hugs, and brushes hair from my face.” maybe i should give this a little bit more time? if i just want to be with you then i'll try to take you on a date. i told him to tell me the truth, even if it hurts, and it took him awhile to respond back, i’m guessing either he put it to the side because i blew it and he didn’t care or because he was trying to figure out what to say. arrives a little drunk since it was boys night out and honestly, i’ve had hookups before, and when my other fwb arrive, they weren’t like him. she might be sexy as hell but just not my personality type, or batsh*t insane, or 101 other things that might mean she and i are not compatible. if he comes around with concrete, tangible interest and follows through, then you can think about what it means. he kisses me in front of friends, h loves meeting my mom, wants to meet my dad, etc.’s always asking me about my life or stories from my past. often make the mistake of thinking that because the sex feels intimate, is followed by texting, and repeated efforts to see you again, that the man wants a relationship. i mean it was like love at first site with me but i’m really not the type thats comfortable around boys especially if i like them. the last thing he wants is you calling him up telling him about how hard your day was, unless he’s getting something out of it. because you meet the hookup standard doesn’t necessarily mean you meet the dating standard. yet, when he meet up at each others house to hook up he cuddles me constantly, tells me things like how his never been so comfortable with any one like this, strokes my hair, hugs me close when we fall asleep together and he doesnt hook up with any one else but me. i’m just not sure if i’m supposed to play it cool, or let him know i’m interested in getting to know him – more than the hu. i was under no illusions that it was anything more than just sex which suited me fine. if a reasonably attractive guy wants to be sexually stimulated, he’d be going beyond first base and he wouldn’t be using you for it, he’d find some floozy who’s begging to go further. again i’d like to say before, during, and after the intimate time, we still had a full on conversation catching up and he was still asking me questions and questions still wanting to know more about me. but come the end of the night she said she just wanted to sleep in her own bed tonight. i’m just not sure if i fit in his schedule “literally. now i might want more…and i don’t know whether i am reading too much into his actions and words, or whether what i am seeings is really there…we talk everyday, we cuddle a lot and spend time together without always having sex, he tells me “i am his” , that he misses me and likes me and spending time with me. afterward he made sure i was ok and if i wanted to go to bed.Steam you are not connected to matchmaking servers

8 Ways To Get Downgraded From Potential Girlfriend To Hookup

and what i like that most is that he remembers everything i tell him about me. now with all of that being said we have seen eachother almost every day since thenand every time were together he is constantly telling me how much he likes me and how good i make him feel and how great i treat him and that he’s not used to it etc… he’s more than affectionate with me and when he looks into my eyes i would swear that he is falling very hard for me. life lessons only the best of friends can teach you in your twenties. when he was asked if he liked me he juss brushed it off and tried to change the subject. know he likes me but how can i tell if wants me for something serious or just fling? then i ended up talking a day or two later with our mutual friend who had talked to her about the events of saturday night and said that the girl really loved the affection and cuddling was fine with me not coming but that she had also said that she wasn’t looking for affection. here’s the thing: if he just wanted a one-night stand, then he isn’t looking for a girlfriend and isn’t a good match for you right now. i don’t want to create problems where there are none, or end things out of fear if there’s real potential. just feel as if things changed since we had sex. it’s not that there’s anything particularly wrong with that person per se, but you just don’t have the same level of compatibility — which includes, but is not limited to, interests, communication styles, sense of humor, values and intellectual levels — that you would with someone you would date. every new attractive hookup was an affirmation of self, and my batting average was high. my friend encouraged me to email him just making simple conversation and he responded back pretty much telling me he noticed me and wanted to hang out. i have difficulties to fully trust and show my emotions without holding back, because i am affraid to get hurt. i knew that if it continued i’d develop feelings and he said that was okay because feelings always get involved especially since we’ve known each other so long. think the best one is;“if you have to wonder whether or not he likes you, then you should assume that he doesn’t. i volunteer at a hospital, and one day a man begged me to take him off life support. things might go is irrelevant; right now you are not getting what you want out of the relationship, and in the process you are ceding control of your emotional and romantic life to him and his own fickle emotions. a man says, “i am ready now, with you” then a woman should walk away if a relationship is her goal.  there is no one else and he does not want anyone else we are exclusive and i said if i met another guy (relationship type) i would stop what we have together, this is when he started to get wierd and was like “no you don’t have to do that we can still see each other, i’d be fine about it”. meant not sure if he's falling for me* haha i wish i was sure that he was. tell him how you feel and ask if he feels the same way and can see it working out. if he’s 45, i assume his kids are a bit older. or if you’d like to start slow, just tell him how much you like him, or that you love dating him. i can tell that you're really into him – i hope it's mutual!“despite all these things, i feel he is a great guy if he really cares for someone and is in love…”. it is perfectly reasonable to tell him and ask him why he feels the need to be on match if he is sincere about everything he’s been saying and doing. if you like this guy a lot more than a booty-call relationship warrants, don’t accept a “casual” relationship. the thing is, he hasnt formally asked me out on any dates, or expressed that he wants to be in a relationship with me. he exihibits all the signs in the article, he seems interested in my life and even confides in me about his.  but if this has been going on for months, your presence should be evident in some way.  anyway during the conversation he said he thought it best to keep it as it was cos he didnt want to start feeling jealous if i was having dinner with a guy etc…… (does this mean that deep down he was jealous about my business dinner with a guy), he also said the only time things would go wrong is if i developed feelings for him and he got with another girl, i turned the tables and said what if he fell in love with me and that he’d then end up hating me if i didn’t feel the same. he finally responded telling me he didn’t want to hold me back and that he really wasn’t making sure i wasn’t with anyone, that he was just asking (which i don’t believe because he got jealous angry when i brought up the last guy, which wasn’t even a big deal to me). it's then up to her to decide if that's what she wants or not.” and the truth is i am – “well yeah actually if i was to say im going on a date would you care? i was sure that we would go on to do larger things if you know what i mean.. also he always encourages me to meet other guys but if i do anything with any one else he gets so upset. you ask her to hang and she can’t but follows up with a different idea or opportunity, then it shows she still wants to see you despite being unavailable on your terms (classic hard-to-get move). it sounds like he wants to set the pace, so let him do the initiating. you just need an outsider’s perspective, especially if that  outsider is a dude. but this really helped me know where i stand and if the girl i am talking with right now is taking me seriously. he was a complete sweetheart and as he was going he talked about some stuff we could do together and i asked if that lune always worked for him, and he laughed, said he was serious but wasn’t looking fir “a girlfriend or wife or anything). over the past year, he has indicated interest in hanging out, just the two of us, and i have always brushed it off with a joke or something. if he doesn’t follow through, he’s a douche. i suggest that you tell him exactly what you said to me. if he still wants to come around, and you think you want something more than casual sex, i’d try and schedule time to hang out without sex. if he is just looking for casual sex, then he’s unlikely to change his mind. comments really put me at ease and i feel more confident on what i need to do. but he keeps hinting around that he wants to do intimate stuff this weekend…. but over time he became more and more attractive to me. of course he’s in no hurry, but it’s different for women. hang out and watch movies together, as well he cuddles with me and holds my hand, i do not want to read too much into it, so could you shed some light on this? order for me to really date someone i need to be able to talk to her easily, we need to share a few similar interests, she needs to possess (or at least appear to have) certain values/virtues, she needs to be reasonably intelligent, and she has to be at least somewhat attractive (at least to me). i appreciate the effort he is taking to carve himself a niche in my life.)i guess it’s unfair to accuse you of this, but there’s a meme floating around young women who have seen too many rom-coms that the man’s attraction is static, and she can dither, flake, even date other guys, and expect that when she’s finally ready for him, he’ll still be there ready to pursue again until she feels like saying yes.” question that he’ll get if he brings you around without the intention of keeping your around.” supply side economics is not a viable strategy, you can’t get a man to buy you by offering a great product unless he actually wants to buy the product in the first place.’m sorry, but if you expressed your confusion and he did not say anything, i’m afraid you have your answer. yes, we kissed passionately (no necking)…and yes he asked if i wanted to spend the night to which i politely declined, after which we had breakfast…. another such example was last night when i left my facebook on his computer and he took my account, and commented on some girl’s insomnia-related status that “thank god i had *** to help me sleep, he is such a nice guy – you need to text me about this :p” … i’m not even sure how to react to that, he said it was just a joke but honestly, it seems he wants everyone to know that we are “together”..having said all this, if you like him, you might consider telling him.  saying you’re not dtf is ok, that’s good boundary-setting, but if you’ve known him for a month you should know whether you want to kiss him or not.” and he came out and said “i don’t know if i want a relationship cus my past ones have ended badly and well we live in the same building so it’d be awkward.?First, i think you need to ask him point blank if he still feels the same way he did at the beginning, or if his feelings about a relationship have changed. hes also told me and expressed to me that he cares about me (though im not sure if he means on a friend level or on a romantic level). he just never texts me anymore unless i text him first and then it isn’t a long convo. susan,if you could help me out here i’d greatly appreciate it. she doesn’t sit near you, or if she avoids eye contact and physical contact, it’s likely her feelings are platonic only. but he knows and has known that i have way mmore feleings for him! don’t know if this story is still live, but if you do like this guy and want to salvage it, i’d say you have a bit of an apology to give him. he said he might give up his celibacy because he felt like she tainted it and he wanted to feel like he was in control of his own body. she’s interested, you’d best believe she’s told ten of her besties. our relationship is so strange i really dont get it…he told me the other day basically that whenever we are out together i am welcome to stay there whether we hookup or not, ik now that hes not seeing anybody else, he told me the other day that i “so great things for him he will never deny that and greatly appreciates them”, we hangout, hookup, im so attracted to him and hes very attracted to me, we get along great most of the time but i know he does get mad bc on a few occasions i have been drunk and gotten mad at him over frustration with this situation…we have been through so much together in not a lot of time, but it makes me feel bad because i care about him so much and understandably have a huge emotional attachment to him, i do believe he does care about me but i feel like he is still nowhere close to being able to commit to a serious relationship. he's always genuinely interested in what i have to say, what my plans are for the day, week, whatever, who i'm talking to, if any boys are pursuing me, etc. when i was leaving his house, he asked me if i wanted to leave some of my things there, so next time i wouldnt have to pack so much. he’s also mentioned on more than one occasion that he’s moving to the city where i live but that there’s been a bit of delay. a few weekends later we ran into each other at the bar again and all we did was just talk about where we went to school back home and got to know each other a little more, no dancing or anything that night. likewise, i’m not going to date a girl who is going nowhere in her life and has no plan. he will have to let you know, if he can, whether he feels ok about asking you to stay based on the strength of his feelings. my friend encouraged me to email him just making simple conversation and he responded back pretty much telling me he noticed me and wanted to hang out. we both made it clear that we only wanted a physical relationship because of both of our busy lifestyles (both being single parents) and because of the possibility of a conflict of interest because he knows my ex. that night, he started to text me more and more and we hung out on a regular basis, like 4 times a week. things ended like that and didn’t talk to him anymore. and when we got back to my place he continued telling me how much he likes me nd how happy i make him and that he was going to invite me to his house upstate for the weekend if i didn’t already go out with my girlfriends. you’ll learn whether that’s the case if you are friendly and he is unresponsive or just polite. i feel like she already knows everything about me – exposing myself like that on a first date is very unlike me. he asked if i wanted to go to his room and i told him that i didn’t want to sleep with him, and he said that was fine and we could just cuddle. when i tried to end things he called me 15 or more times till i picked up crying saying he couldnt be without me in his life and that if i stop talking to him he will never be even friends with me and cut me off because thats the only way he could get over me. and i’ve even have a very close, well-trusted and well-seasoned guy friend tell me that a man will not pursue a woman for more than a few short months if he is not genuinely interested. come thursday she texted me that she wasn’t up for going out. i understand if you don’t want to ask too early, but i figure if you hook up early, it’s fair to ask how he sees it. don’t think it’s all an act, but it depends on what he wants. he just didn’t seem fake with me and he always seemed to be trying to figure me out and learning more about me, emotionally and mentally, not physically. if you could call the shots, knowing he was willing, what would you ask for? we came back to my place and fooled around some more…i guess my dilemma is that even though i didn’t know it at the time, i can’t keep my emotions out of it. if you really do want nsa, the right thing to do is bump back on his behaviors and tell him they are inappropriate for an nsa “relationship. that leaves you with taking a “wait and see” approach, or giving him more time. i realized that he was with another girl he met there who was from a different country. another girls’ night turns into a long-winded discussion about whether you’re a booty-call or the girl he wants to bring home to his mother. have been times when a girl’s personality has been a total deal breaker, but it’s a lot more difficult to screw up a hook-up than a potential relationship because it’s easier for me to overlook a bad personality, or one that just doesn’t mesh all that well with mine, if i don’t intend to spend more time with them. i don’t know if i shld feel upset or not 🙁. i give you a lot of credit for asking him directly what was happening – i wish he had been more forthcoming with details. i told him i had a one night stand in another country with some guy i met while traveling, no big deal, i thought, but i told him because he wanted to know if i was with anyone while he had been gone. and he hides his feelings well, so instead of just waiting to talk to him in person i spoke before i thought and sent him an email telling him that i just didn’t want to just hook up everytime i saw him, i wanted to know what was on his mind. i had planned to keep it totally casual and fun, and just get to know him more. it was like we both got scared and ran away to our comfort zones (the ex’s, and his ex would always be trying to talk to him from what i remember, and show she cared, i didnt really do that much =/ i didnt wanna be clingy).. we are now a part once again in different countries but he still texts me every day and calls me at least twice or thrice a week and we have phone sex, and once when he called me drunk he told me he doesnt want to have sex with any one but me and how much he misses me… but after that he kinda backed off and the past couple of days after he said that while drunk i think he got embarrassed bcos he’s just been texting me with no intimate talk like before. let him know that if and when he feels ready he is free to contact you, but that you are interested in being official and enjoy exclusive relationships. he’s giving me mixed signals and i can’t desifer them., keeps rushing into my life as soon as he feels

to being official. i urge you to have sex when and if you feel that the relationship is something that you can count on. i would decide first if you like him and want more with him. i would suggest moving forward with your own life, but remain friendly and keep the lines of communication open. would advise you to take a deep breath, there’s a good chance he’s going through all the same anxieties, wondering if he came on too strong with cuddling-style behavior, etc. he didn’t say much, just that i should tell him if i don’t want to do this anymore and he’ll understand. can you see where this goes and if it grows? i found a thread on ask reddit that addresses this exact issue: how can you tell if a guy is just looking for sex or for something more? i have never had more than one sex partner at a time…and i find it weird i’m usually the one with the pants on in a relationship…go figure. you are comfortable how you are, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it, don’t let your friends talk you into ruining it by taking it somewhere you don’t want to go. he finally responded telling me he didn’t want to hold me back and that he really wasn’t making sure i wasn’t with anyone, that he was just asking (which i don’t believe because he got jealous angry when i brought up the last guy, which wasn’t even a big deal to me). if you’re temporary hook-up or a booty-call, he isn’t going to have much interested in showing you off to his friends. lot of times i sit back and let a more aggressive girl get the guy over me. i have seen him for the longest time, and when i look at him i mess up on the music i’m supposed to be playing (if that’s any indication of my physical attraction towards him). if you’re making out again, things are bound to escalate.@scifibabysorry i didn’t see your comment earlier – is your question still relevant? the other hand, if he is actively seeking additional women to date, you need to know that right away. i walked by and he tried stopping me and asking if i was mad. just can’t see falling for a woman who’d fuck for three years a guy she shows no inclination for more with. herecoachingebooksadvertisecontactcart10 signs that your hookup is falling for yoususan walsh •. he got serious and said he wasn’t like him, and continued to ask if he could kiss me. a college man will not play to the idea he’s supposed to generate the social life for his girl, you need to bring him into your life as much as the other way around. he constantly says that he thinks im beautiful and exotic, and lately hes been emphasizing about traits that are more personality-related. why should she bond with you when you are a booty call and he is dating other women? it does sound like he made a real effort, though, like it was about more than sex.@mon pawi’m sorry, that sounds like such a difficult situation. i feel like alone we get along great when he lets his guard down we are so compatible but in public is a whole other story we have never been out together on like a “date” and if we bump into eachother while we are out clubbing or at an event he never approaches me just stares and watches my every move! to tell if you’re his potential girlfriend or just his hook-up buddy. the other weekend i stayed fri and sat night there after we got food together, i was in florida last wknd and he called me while i was gone sat to tell me he had a bad night and we talked for a while, we made plans to hangout this past thursday to get ice cream and watch a movie and we met up last night and ended up going back to his house where i stayed the night and we hooked up…even when we hookup it feels like way more than that bc we cuddle before and after, etc. he told me if i want to “play the field” feel free but he would stop seeing me. we’ve making plans for the fourth of july with your family… we’re not having sex like rabbits anymore so…. so we went out on the balcony and he started kissing me, at which point i initiated a conversation that if he expected us to hook up he needed to contact me and hang out with me sober. anyway just a few nights ago he got pretty drunk and i picked him up and the whole drive back to my place which was about 20 mins he’s telling me how happy he was that i was with him and he must have said “i like you alot lisa, like really alot” at least 20 times … no exaggeration! but i made it clear that she should text me on thursday. he always asks me question after question after question about me, almost like i don’t even get a chance to answer his questions because he keeps asking more! surely making life plans around one another would signify an intent to marry – that you are “the one” and it sounds like after such a short time, he is in no way ready to say that. we asked him once about where it was going and if we had a good chance and he said yes. a guy really wants to be in a relationship with you, he’ll do these things, yes. all of my friends keep trying to get to be at the same place at the same time like at parties or on the vacation that we are all planning this summer and it makes me wonder if they know something i dont. and i said, i don’t want you to but i you should go because that’s what your heart wants and you don’t want to live a life full of regrets. we got in a fight about how we weren’t close anymore in january, but things returned to civil by early february. if he starts acting attached and you don’t like it, set some limits. he holds me and sleeps next to me when we have sex he wants me to get off at least 2-3 times before he even wants to have sex as in oral sex and then spends more time focused on me again not complaining just curious as to what it could mean. to be honest, holding your hands seems more like domination than devotion.  he said he could never hate me if he loved me. however i dont understand his angle, and what he wants from me.… what if a hook up becomes very regular, displays quite a bit of affection in public (around people we had discussed should not be aware of said “hooking up”), allows you to be alone in his house while hes at an appointment, buys you coffee, makes you breakfast, provides you with a new toothbrush and insists you spend a majority of the day with him while going out of his way to be affectionate? after that we’d kiss and cuddle after work and we’d text and call each other but being 4 years younger i was way too scared to even find out if he was interested in more. we talked for awhile, and then over the course of the next few weeks starting hanging out more and more. we went to three different bars, my place, went out to a restaurant for late night food, and then she spent the night. we have never talked about just being a hookup or never having a relationship. if it’s still an issue, i’d set it up so that he has no choice but to kiss you. we talked about the lack of time issue and i said well if i met someone i really wanted then i suppose i’d make time for them and that obviously i haven’t met that person yet, he then asked if i’d have a relationship with him, i said yes he asked why and i said cos we get on really well, he is my kinda normal with good values/morals etc and the sex is great. if he had real feelings, he would not have been eager to go hook up with other people, even if you were the one who suggested it. if he does, then you can move forward and stop worrying.[…] ways you know you’re (finally) dating a gentleman read this: 11 rules for finding love on tinder read this: 25 men answer “what’s the difference between a girl you date and a girl you

girl that he dated once upon a time she was engaged to her boyfriend but broke off that one when the guy im talking about went up for the summer… she is up in the northwest territories(canada) while me and him is in newfoundland. but i wonder if he has feelings, misses me etc. “i forgot how beautiful you were,” and a sweet kiss. he held me really close then asked if he could kiss me. at any time either of you could meet someone you like more. we haven’t had sex yet, but i am wondering if we should or if that would be a bad move. if he wants to stay uncommitted, he owes it to you to tell you if he gets with some other woman. i don’t know his reasons because i of course can’t read his mind, but if i’m not mistaken he drove all the way down just to see me because in that weekend he only saw the friend he drove down with, the friend who let him stay at his place, me, and his brother. those are the signals that point me in the “more-than-friends thinking” direction. i told him i was fine with taking things slow and keeping things causal at first and seeing where it went from there but now it seems like it is more, he is spending hours talking to me about my life and things in my past, telling me about his life and him growing up his past sexual relationships and his “first time” i have spoken to him about mine. he wrote me asking if i remembered him and gave me his number. when we finally got together things were awesome, but i got drunk and yelled at him and i dont remember what i said and he wont tell me what i said but he was freaked out and stopped calling me the usual nick names etc but we still had sex after that episode i guess i did in an attempt to get closer to him, but he never wanted to be with me in public after that, his excuse was every one thinks we are dating already and i dont want a commitment (he had a bad break up). susan, i hope you can shed some light on a situation i thought i had with a guy! he also teases me about how ‘i need space’ and how he wishes he could see me more often, but cant, because of my ‘boundaries’. really don’t wanna come off like a misogynist, but i respect a woman more if she doesn’t just put out straight away. if you were the one to break the engagement, this is truly cruel on your part. he asked about my past too, and if i had similar experience with a cheater. she mentioned other guys that had tried to date her and she wasn’t interested and found them too pushy. he said he thinks mqrrying a friene would be nice i asked him ifvwed date first and he saie yes and i asked if hed fheat and he said no. i first began talking to him it started on a hookup level which i was okay since i was coming out of a bad 2 year relationship, but after seeing how nice this guy was to meexamples: always responds to my texts/calls immediately, brings me around his friends, still talks to me after i fell in a pile of snow out of drunken clumsiness, shares common interests, kisses my foreheadi couldnt help but start liking the guy, but being over protective of my feelings i told him my new years resolution was to not have a boyfriend and no love in 2011. i’m not worried about the age difference at all, but a guy that age is unlikely to want a serious commitment, especially if it involves the lives of three children.. wanted to know how i felt about what was happening, to see if i wanted more or was cool with everything. cannot peg this situation… the smarter part of me feels that i should end this now before future hurt, but the unwise part wants to continue, because this feeling i get with him is like a high i cannot control. so i told him to call me or text me anything he wanted if he needed someone to talk to. the research shows is that early sex is not a barrier to a relationship if both parties went into it interested in a relationship. he asked if i missed him i said “no but my aims getting better” and he texted back “well i’ve missed you”. i have to believe that if he wanted a real commitment he would have locked it down by now, but you’ve put so much into this relationship, it really doesn’t make sense to do anything without having a frank talk first. but the big problem and why i am now more confused is because he said he does not have time for a proper relationship (neither do i thats fine) that it would not be fair as he cannot commit the time to me or anyone else at the moment. well, right after the friend and i started working together there was some very intense flirting, we even got to the what are you looking for in a life partner conversation (strangely enough we are pretty much exactly what the other is looking for). he’d offer to give me lifts and ‘rescue’ me from unwanted attention if i was out.-the look in his eyes when he looks at me is always so intense, as if he wants to say he loves me. if you’re not down for fwb, you need to let him know that. i can’t decide if he actually likes me, or he’s just using me for sex. i wanted to be like a man and sow my wild oats if you will. if a girl is beautiful (determined by shape of the body, face, etc. my guy refers to it as ‘university dating’ (which is scary in itself, because that means he thinks that’s what we are doing as well) me and my guy were discussing it and he said “if he liked her hed let her know it, he would man up and ask her out before he lost her” and i said “but then again who would want to date their fuck buddy” and he says “you wouldn’t? also i haven’t introduce him to my friends either because i don’t know if i should introduce him as a friend or boyfriend. so i have been reading all of your great advice and hope you can shed some light on the very confusing & complicated situation i’m in—i met this amazing guy about 5 months ago and we hit it off immediately (we met the night of my bday party his roommate who i am good friends w/ introduced us). and he asked to keep it low key because publicity always brings more problems. he then said that he was a loser and going nowhere with his life and that i deserve someone better than him. city girl in london, a prep on nantucket, and a hippie in california, she's as diverse as the everything bagel she had for breakfast.!@amandathere’s no easy way – you must tell him how you feel now, and why. sometimes i think he really wants a relationship, and then he will do something that just indicates the opposite. should i just ask him what is it that he wants from me? when his daughter, age two, would be over, i’d go over after she went to sleep and leave before she woke up. if you are 29, ready to meet someone for a serious relationship, and as much fun as it sounds like from this story, you will be in high demand., should i ask him next time i see him in person or is it ok if i just ask him over the phone? until he knows where he wants this to go, i think that is very, very risky for you.. how do i tell if he just wants to kiss or is genuinely interested? and i don’t know if i should continue to see him because there is a factor of jealousy now on the table. maybe it’s wishful thinking on my part but it was different. one ammendment, i said the mutual friend said she wasnt looking for affection, that’s supposed to be “attachment”. shows of affection or sex do not mean he wants to get “committed. Dating a woman who is recently divorced

but she was only there for a few months into the start of our emails and i guess she left. he doesn’t want that he’s a manipulative bastard and you should cut him out of your life entirely. i’ve just grown feelings for this guy and i’m not sure if i should just walk away and give up because i know my father would never allow it or keep having a secret relationship until i do get more freedom. best analogy i can think of is the difference between an enlisted member of the navy and a navy seal. would still do those to the girl i’d date, but i’d have the decency not to tell others about those shameful disgusting things. i just get somewhat offended when he does not answer, as it feels disrespecful, but i can clearly see he wants to rule the pace, perphaps to really get the idea whether this is worth or not rather than jumping into it. can’t tell if this is too soon after my ex-boyfriend to be seeing someone new, and i can’t tell what our mutual friend wants to do about us. if he’s seriously into you, he will make time to talk to you…and often.: guess this just means we need to see each other more often 🙂. we hooked up a couple more times and hung out. i tell him that i understand exactly what he is going through and that i will always be here regardless of his mistakes. it’s only been 2 weeks of texting and talking on the phone and 2 hook ups, then yesterday he called asking if it was okay that we put off the sex for now, so we wouldn’t get sick of it and so that he could put more respect into it and just hang out.-sometimes he’ll tell me he misses me already after only being apart for like an hour.[…] read this: 25 men answer “what’s the difference between a girl you date and a girl you just hook… read this: i’m one of those moms that’s breastfeeding her kid through puberty read this: i’m a personal trainer and here are 10 things i wish every one of my clients knew read this: i thought my boyfriend and i were having fun threesomes, until i found out he was pimping me out to guys he found on craigslist cataloged in […]. if there’s no verbal commitment, all the other stuff is just a fun little diversion for him, and is totally meaningless. he considers us friends, nothing more, nothing less and that he wanted us on the same page. when he left on friday he knew i would be away all this week and asked me if i was able to be online and talk to him when i’m gone.  does he want me to say, actually i really have developed some feelings for you and want to see if we are good together or does he want me to end it.,i’ve “hooked up” (no sex) with this one guy two different times within the past four months. he may or may not be telling the truth but i feel it doesn’t correlate with how we were all these years. if he wants to take this to the next level, though, he will. have no idea if he’s in it only for the sex, but he’s clearly making that a priority. if you want to know how he feels about you, that’s the way to find out., i am in college and its my second year here different program this time. said he wants a designated person to hook up with because i was upfront and said that i am not sleeping with multiple people at once…and wanted the same respect. the entire vegas trip he was looking out for me and really sweet, telling me how pretty i looked every night and mentioning that we had hooked up by making jokes in front of people. he held me and kept asking if i was ok and if i wanted to go to bed. he will not fall in love if he has already decided not to. felt like i had soo many questions and decided to send him an email basically telling him that what i wrote before wasn’t what i meant and what i meant was that i enjoyed our friendship before and i realize that i can’t do the in between because i can’t handle it and i have feelings. don’t think if she doesn’t approach after this moment she’s not interested. i also told him i was confused because he didn’t want me with anyone else and he could get that ‘jealous’ tone if there was any guy and how he kept in contact with me all these years and i didn’t know what that means and i felt like i deserve to know something because of that. if a guy is into you, sure, he won’t always want talk. i finally asked him when he was leaving the country and he told me next week he was going and it crushed me. he has never said if he likes me or not and i cant figure it out. he has even put questions out there concerning jealousy ex: “if a year from now you saw me talikng to other females would you get mad? i like that but the hooking up is appearing to be more than that and im fine with that as well its just he told me he wanted something causal at first and to see where it went because he just got out of a very long serious relationship with a girl he loved dearly who cheated on him and then played his heart, his exact words. i miss him a lot and i want to tell him that but don’t know how, so now i don’t know when am i going to see him because he didn’t mention anything. we share alot of the same interests, but i don't quite understand his angle or what he wants. i know i am worthy of something better as i tend to put the guys needs first before mine and i tend to fall in love easily with them…after a string of really unsuccessful moral crushing internet dating where all the men were commitment-phobe sex fiends, someone crossed my path in my real life. he suggested going somewhere more private – was he hoping to have sex? tell him that, he needs to know what you are really thinking. if he is still texting, still flirting, he’s probably hoping to weaken your resolve and get you to have more sex with him, even though he has no intention of committing. is it true that a guy will let go of a girl no matter how much they care/love/want in their lives if they aren’t ready financially or in general ready? if he pulls away, ask him what the heck his problem is!  out of curiosity, i asked if he was looking for a relationship, and he said maybe, but he wasn’t willing to rush into things and wanted to see what direction things took. if you don’t hear from him by saturday at noon, text him (“hey how are you doing” not “are we going out tomorrow? if she was looking for a hookup, and you acted like a potential bf, that would explain her diminished interest. whenever i talk about guy friends, he always wants to know more, or if they’re gay. then he said he wanted to just sleep with me and that if i just wanted to sleep with him. you want him as a bf, you have to tell him. but after that night i told him, he seemed even more into me. this has a lot to do with intelligence, hobbies, and ambition. if you’re wondering, either he’s not into it, or he’s playing mind games.  if you have to cry for a while, do it, alone or with friends. we emailed back and forth just once every while, while he was traveling just to see how he was doing and then all of a sudden i didn’t hear from him anymore. you do need to make sure there isn’t a “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, though. i started seeing him out a lot more and we would often just chat and we got along really well. he told his friend that am his special friend and then when he talk to me about his friend he said ” if you ever meet him don’t tell him this that am going to tell you”. if you’re a booty-call or a place-holder, he will actively protest the sound of your voice because that’s just not what he wants from you. i had sex with a lot of women who were absolutely not my type (vastly different interests, beliefs, etc) and it was purely about the physical. he was always very sweet and very focused on me, telling me how beautiful i am and that he can’t believe i would be with him, etc. i said,am new to casual dating so i cant tell the difference at all. you have two choices – if you need to know right now exactly what he’s thinking, you have to ask.[…] read this: 25 men answer “what’s the difference between a girl you date and a girl you just hook… read this: 5 ways to attract love read this: 7 things i wish someone would have told me when i first started trying to impress women cataloged in […]. this guy gives me crazy mixed signals and it is hard for me to tell whether he likes me as more than just a friend. hookups (like spending time together and conversation) are a way of getting to know someone.. she makes eye contact and/or smiles before you talk. i was wondering if there’s anything i need to be concerned about in my current situation or just enjoy things as they are. why not just mention that things have felt really different recently and you wonder what it means? best way to avoid becoming a hookup is to not sleep with the guy unless he makes a bit of a commitment. why don’t women ever believe it when men tell them that?” i know he was hurt deeply by his divorce, though he speaks of it as if it was a loveless marriage, she pretty much broke the bank. the word heaps seems not only to quantify his love for you, but also to qualify it.[…] this: 10 warning signs to look for before entering a relationship read this: 25 men answer “what’s the difference between a girl you date and a girl you just hook… read this: 10 ways you’re making your life harder than it has to be read this: 17 basic sephora […].” you need to know that, because every day you spend gets you more invested. there are many guys out there – don’t settle for someone who doesn’t know what he wants and doesn’t treat you respectfully. my life has been a train wreck for the past 3 years now, but i love a. statement that you're not even sure he knows what he wants is a telling one – it sounds like he does have mixed feelings. he may feel jealous of another potential boyfriend, sure, but he’s not saying he wants to be that boyfriend. i obviously want him to do so because he wants to. he said i just dont want to hurt you and i dont want to get hurt, i know im very affectionate and that can be confusing but i guess iif you’re not thinking about any of that then were on the same page. i think i could relax into it if i knew for sure that he likes me so with all of my peculiarities and wants to be my man. neither of you are defective, you just want slightly different things. just because you don’t see him with lots of other girls doesn’t mean he doesn’t have something else going on or wouldn’t jump at the chance if a hot new girl fell into his lap. if both of you were ready for a relationship, had sex early and went on to spend time together, as you have, a relationship is just as likely to succeed as if you had waited longer to have sex. and if it’s the former, how will that work living in two separate countries?  maybe he feels some affection, but i doubt anything more–at least i doubt it based on anything you’ve said. so i told him if he ever needed to talk, to give me a call or text me and i’m an open ear. that’s not to say there weren’t girls who i had feelings for, but my trust issues meant that i stifled the feelings and kept them at arm’s length, or inexpertly blurted out how i felt while drunk and made a hash of it. may be too early to ask him if you’re “the one” but if you’re having sex it is certainly not too early to ask, “how do you see me? am a bit torn, as i don’t know if he is doing these things because he knows i am a woman ( 🙂 ) and that we “need these things”. im pretty shy (and have also not dated much or had a bf before, but am a sophomore in college) so i found this to be a relief. after that, we still texted often; maybe i was paranoid but i got mad if he didn’t not text me everyday. he has a lot of friends that are girls and i can tell he likes all the attention. don’t “hookup” (meaning casual sex), unless i know i’m in a committed, exclusive situation with the other party. he tells me he doesn’t know where we’ll go but until then, he just isn’t ready right now to ask me out. he tells me he misses me and little stuff like that and no he doesnt come and see me because the job he has he works 7 days a week. i make sure i don't see her more than once a week (twice a week every once in a while). i was alarmed (i had no intention of falling for him, both of us had just gotten out of horrible relationships and, as far as i had thought, both of us were looking for an optimal friends-with-benefits situation to supplement our intense university lifestyle) and i so insisted that we have the “talk” when i return. i feel more comfortable letting the guy make the first move. this guy is essentially spelling out what he wants from you. also the whole time i have known this guy his friends always call him a man whore which concerns me a lot, but at the same time this summer i spent a lot of time with him to the point where i would have noticed if he was with lots of girls. the next day he went back home and now things have gone completely way out of hand,he is sending me videos,romantic love songs,calling me 3 times in a day,even more wanting to know where i am or my plans for a day and he is trying so bad to know more about my family but in a cleaver way and everytime i changed the subject he finds a way to sink me in into it again.” what’s not ok is to blame or rage at him for it, more on that later….  since my first relationship went horribly wrong due to rushing, i am more than okay with taking my time. i figure i have nothing to lose, i was newly single at this point, so i ask him if he wants to hang out and catch up.” the answer is simple – men typically don’t think “wow this woman is great, she’s so great i should marry her.. i just need more time and i want to take things slowly with you. other words, he has to decide now if he sees a possible future with you. to add, he told me i’m everything he likes in a woman and called me beautiful.. and i feel like its sincere bc he is kinda of a quiet more reserved guy, not someone who is fake outgoing. i took this that he was testing me to see if i’d respond or if i gave up on him. the guy i’m seeing says if i had more freedom he would love to date me but it’s hard because of this and i agree. don’t try to be his friend – that just means more sex when he finds it convenient. he said, “if that’s the only reason, i don’t want to have sex with you. i don’t sleep around, but it was so difficult for me to keep my hands off of him. the fact that he wants to be sexually exclusive is a clue – the question is, what do you want? if you love him and he’s just in it for sex and friendship, then you are wasting your time and need to exit that immediately. and it looks like he isn’t keeping up anymore with his online journal and almost like he’s disappeared. and it looks like he isn’t keeping up anymore with his online journal and almost like he’s disappeared. sure, you can say “he knows it’s just sex and nothing more,” but you should be able to understand that once someone’s emotions start rolling the rational mind can’t make it stop.
