Is he interested and trying to protect himself? Or does he know I like him and wants me to back off by backing off himself?
I met J. last semester. During Xmas we texted daily and. We spend time together but usually in groups but we do an occasional meal with just us. When I ask him to spend time with me he never says "No" and he texted me cute pics of himself that he didn't send to anyone else. He shares dreams and fears with me that he doesn't with anyone else. When we hang out in a group his attention's on me. He went through a bad breakup and doesn't want to get hurt. He's never acknowledged feelings for me, never complemented me on my looks, but never talks about girls when I'm around and his roommate says he mentions me in the dorm. On Wednesday he asked me to spend the afternoon with him but that evening he was hanging out with two other girls. Friday he seemed kind of distant and today I texted him a pic and he never texted me back. He clearly likes spending time with me. If he didn't have feelings for me, wouldn't he talk about other girls when I'm around? He has a habit of getting really close to me and then backing off.
