I won’t talk to him then because I would only develop stronger feelings for him I guess and I’ll have expectations of something more and when I won’t get what I want I’ll only be hurt even more.
Do you think ignoring him will make him step up? Also, would things be different if he was the one to approach me?
I also forgot to mention about his relationship status. Our mutual friend (who’s his classmate) told me that he was in a serious relationship until last year but now she doesn’t know what’s his relationship status. However, when we were all hanging out once, his friend deliberately made it known to me that he broke up with his girlfriend and he didn’t say anything in response to that.
After hearing that he just wants to be friends with me (after flirting with me and telling all his friends how hot I am) my guy friend said that he wants to be friends with benefits most likely because he’s clearly very attracted to me.
Also, even if he does think about dating me sometimes, how do you think he would act upon it considering he’s not able to talk to me in the first place?
You said that I make him feel a certain way, that other girls are not able to, does that mean anything? I don’t know if I actually have strong feelings for him or it’s just an infatuation. My best friend thinks it’s the latter. I don’t even know why I’m feeling this way about him even though we barely know each other.
He has shown some red flags and he’s definitely not the kind of person I’m usually attracted to (he smokes, does drugs and drinks).
