really like my BF and I think he likes me but I'm not sure. He
doesn't say he
likes me back and he didn't get me a birthday present. But we've
held hands and stuff. With Christmas around the corner, I'm not sure
what to do. Is he just not a sappy guy or should I dump him?
sounds like you have a communication issue on your hands. Boys aren’t
that good at expressing how they feel, so your BF probably thinks
that he is showing you he likes you by kissing and holding hands. The
fact that he is your BF says that he must like you at least a little,
but you need to hear it, too.
next time you talk to him in person, say something like “I like
spending time with you and I’m glad to have you as a boyfriend.”
There’s not really a way to outright ask him if he likes you
without looking insecure, but the more you encourage verbal
communication, the more likely he is to respond.
if your BF isn’t saying he likes you, look at the other signs he
gives. Does he meet you at your locker and make an effort to see you?
Maybe he didn’t get you a birthday gift, but did he make your day
special? Don’t concentrate so much on the material things, but
think about how he makes you feel. If you really like him, it might
be worth keeping the relationship and letting it grow.
you can live without lovey dovey romantic words and gifts, stay with
him. But if it’s a deal breaker for you, then you should break up
with him. If you do stay together, though, plan a
gift exchange for the holidays – that way, you’re both happy!
