Why does my crush diss other dudes?
Q: The guy I like is my friend, and he is always telling me that no guy is good enough for me. Should I be reading something into that?"
His Answer: “If the relationship is like brother-sister, he is just being protective. But if it is a normal friendship, then the girl should be like 'who is good enough for me/ what qualities should he have?'. Let your true feelings show, and he'll get the hint.” – Yohnny R., 17
Decoded: It all depends on your relationship. He could just think you are one awesome chick that deserves the best, kind of like how an older brother might react to you having a BF. Or maybe he thinks that the “best” could be him. Is he your BGF that you’ve known forever, or just one of your normal guy friends?
Your Move: Next time he says something like that, test the waters, ask him what kind of guy is good enough for you. When he starts to describe the perfect guy for you, ask him if he is talking about someone like him. There isn’t a better way to find out what he truly thinks than having him tell you himself. Get up the courage to reveal how you feel about him, and he will too.
