What Guys Think

Does he really like me...or is he just using me?

 
How do you know when a guy really likes a girl or is just "using" her? I'm fourteen now and I'm dating my crush since middle school. At first I felt like I scored because I finally got him. But now I'm just afraid he plans on "using" me like most teenage boys do in relationships.
 

His Answer: “Sometimes guys are insecure and don’t know how to show a girl that they really like her, so he may be nervous around you and not really know how to be in a relationship,” says Jack, 15. “But he could be using you if he pressures you into doing things you don’t want to do.” 

 

Decoded: It’s possible that you two just need to get to know each other better before you can get that cool relationship you want. What’s not cool? Feeling like he is pressuring you to do anything you’re not ready for. 

 

Your Move: If he ever tries to make you do anything you’re not ready for, tell him you’re not okay with it. Your relationship is 50/50, you both should have an equal say in what happens. If he doesn’t respect that, dating him is so not worth it. Look for a cutie that is honest with you about why he likes you, and be honest with him too!
