Why Would He Say Those Things
I met this guy we would text each other a lot. He would always text me first thing in the morning and would randomly tell me that he liked me and he missed me. I started to like him a lot because he was very sweet to me and gave me a lot of attention. I was convinced that he liked me so I told him my feelings but he told he did not feel the same way.
I didn't understand it because he would tell me he liked and missed me which I figured you would tell someone if you liked them more than a friend. He has never had a girlfriend either. I don't understand why he would say those things to me if he only liked me as a friend.
Sorry for taking a little while to get back to you. We've been having some problems with our internet the past couple days and had a bit of a delay in receiving some emails...thanks for being patient!
You're right, that really is confusing. Definitely sounds like he was saying and doing things to make you feel like he had feelings for you that were "more than just friends." Its also really awesome that had the courage and confidence to tell him how you felt... a lot of people would've been too scared to actually take that step. You were able to open up to him, and that is such a great skill to have. We know that it might not have worked out the way you would've wanted it to, but please don't let this one occasion stop you from opening up to people in the future. That's a really cool skill to have!
It sounds like this guy is confused. He was doing things and saying stuff that really made it seem like he liked you, but when you opened up to him he shied away. Maybe he doesn't know what he wants, or maybe being affectionate is just his personality. Have you ever asked other girls he is friends with if he talks to them the same way he talks to you? Maybe that's just the way he is. If so, you gotta ask yourself if you are going to be comfortable continuing to be friends with him. If he keeps talking to you like that you need to remember not to lead yourself on, since you know how he feels. At the same time, you might feel a bit awkward around him after expressing your feelings.
If you feel like that's going to affect the friendship then it might be a good idea to keep some distance for a while, until you feel like you are ready to go back to a plain old friendship with him, and nothing more. The feelings you have for him will definitely pass, and putting some space between the two of you for a while will make it much easier on yourself.
Hang in there!
