it means he might have come out of a tough relationship recently and he just wants to be friends or it means he just likes someone else... either way ask again in about 2 months and if he still is not ready for a relationship... just keep your eyes open... there are lots of fish in the sea
All are good answers . Best to re-evaluate this guy and if a relationship is what you're after, move on. I waited for 4 years for a guy who told me that on our first date and guess what? He never was ready! Cut your losses and find a great guy who is ready for a commitment ! Good luck
Some girls don't quite understand that because girls tend to want relationships more than guys do. When I say I'm not ready (which I'm not), I mean I'm not exactly mature enough yet and I want to be "free" as long as I can. I can't exactly handle relationships yet because I'm still trying to figure girls out. I know dating is so you CAN figure girls out, but I think I need to figure them out just by talking and later on in life I'll go further with it.
From my experience (I may or may not be right) of talking to girls, they love to have relationships alot sooner because they like to be told that they're loved. Well this is the reason so many people date at too young of an age: parents are never home so the child feels lonely; if the kid is a female, she'll get a boyfriend so she'll feel guided while her parents are never there. The boy on the other hand just doesn't really care and says "Yeah sure, we're together" just so he can tell people he has a girlfriend so he can be cool. This is of course speaking about kids of the age 8 to 15.
As for kids 15 to 16, they feel that they need a date because everyone else has a boyfriend or girlfriend too and for some reason our society today has a problem with people who are "different", so they're embarrassed if they don't have a date like everyone else.
Ages 17 and up, that's usually when people start honestly dating for the genuine reason. That's why I'm not ready yet - I'm only fifteen and I'm waiting till I think I'm "ready", meaning "old enough". At least that's what it means coming from me.
Ive had 6 girls say they liked me and asked me out during the summer. I turned them All down becuz i was just in a serious relationship and we broke up.plus Im focusing on my school work cuz my mom is hard on my school work. And wants it perfect.
He is trying to tell you, as kindly as possible not to hurt your feelings, that he is not into you. So, respect his feelings and move on. He is being kind to you, do the same to him. He is telling you, in kind words "You are not The One!". He'll keep searching, and so should you.
I'm going through the same thing. He keeps telling me he's not ready for a relationship but enjoys the sex, friends with benefits. I been divorced for 16 years, him, 3 years and his ex hurt him, she had a boyfriend while they were married. but he'll come around when he wants a booty call it seems. He wants to be my friend. But all along when things start to get deeper, he backs off. Then tells me again , I don't want to hurt you and I'm not out to hurt you but I'm not ready for a relationship. Then I get hurt all over again and feel used. He is 57, I am 61. I need advice from someone. Should I just walk away and not waste my time? I'm ready for a relationship. Yet when he moved in next door at first, he dated my neighbor. Then I'm not sure of the story, there was 2 sides, they stopped going out together. She lives across from him. I use to live downstairs from him. Now I'm in the same complex but in another building. What should I do. I keep thinking theres a chance with him, because I like him very much or am I wasting my time? Please help?
