I'm getting mixed signals
He kept asking me who I like, and I admitted that I like him. But when I asked him, he said he doesn’t like anyone. Is he lying?
HIS ANSWER: “I think that a guy who says that really does like you. At the same time, he’s probably been hurt by a past relationship or is just nervous about getting into one.
I would say don’t give up, keep talking to him, and let him know you like him in the things you do. Be there for him and let him know that he can trust you. Sometimes guys just take a while.”
DECODED: Of course, you don’t want to cross the line into needy or overbearing, but boys need support too, and that’s something that many people don’t often remember. Maybe you have a shy guy. Just take it slow and easy and he’ll come around.
YOUR MOVE: Keep being his friend. If you can prove to him that you are in this, and that you really do like him, he’ll probably get over his fears. Boys take a while sometimes, but they usually come around if they can actually be convinced that you like them and can be trusted to not hurt ‘em.
