The Relationship Question
I like this guy and I’ve known him since we were in kindergarten. We don’t have much in common and he’s not really my type, but I can’t help but like him. Whenever we’re together, there’s never an awkward moment. We’ve hugged a few times, but that’s about it. Sometimes I feel like he likes me, but I always doubt if he really does because I feel like he’s just being nice. I’ve only told two people how I feel about him. I don’t know if I should pursue him or not. Help?
The Relationship Advice
Thank you for sharing your situation. Some of the best relationships are built on a strong friendship. It’s up to you to decide what you want to do. There are a few things you might think about to figure out what you want to do including:
- Do some thinking and ask yourself how you really feel about him and what your ideal scenario would be.
- If you’re interested, talk with him and ask him how he feels.
- Be friends if you want to go in that direction.
- Keep letting the relationship develop as it has up to now.
One of the best ways to clarify what’s going on is to talk calmly and kindly with each other and listen to what the other person has to say. It doesn’t have to be super serious, just talk in a friendly way about what’s on your minds.
Think about what’s important to you and how you really feel about him. You’ll eventually arrive at a decision that makes sense to you and leads you in a positive direction. Remember that you deserve to be with someone who you’re comfortable with and who likes you back.
