He is still interested when he is communicating with you on a regular basis and asking you out on dates.
He is still interested when he is continuously asking you questions about yourself and trying to get to know you better.
He may be worried of allowing himself to come to terms with how he feels for you.
He may be doing things that show that he likes you but is still unsure of his feelings because he is fearful of what the implications would be if he acknowledged them.
He may not want to put himself in that position.
If he were to do so, he may feel that he would be making himself vulnerable.
He knows that he doesn’t want to feel weak.
If this is a guy that you are not in a relationship with, he means that he likes you so much that he would really like to be in a relationship with you.
By using the word, “really,” he is trying to also let you know that he wants you to focus on him and him only.
In other words, he may know that there are other guys that you may be talking to or may be trying to get your attention.
If the both of you aren’t exclusively dating, you will have to understand that first.
He isn’t yours at this time.
If you are trying to figure out a way to stop caring that this guy that you are talking with has a Tinder account, you will have to accept the actual current state of your relationship with him.
If he has asked you out, then he is clearly interested.
If he hasn’t asked you out yet, it could be for a variety of reasons.
If you did give him this opening to ask you out but he still didn’t do it, he may have acted this way because he isn’t interested in you.
He may have meant that he just wants to take some time with you and get to know you better before he makes any definitive decisions on what he thinks you are to him.
In other words, he doesn’t want to make a decision on what he thinks you are to him prematurely.
He would typically do this because he is unsure as well, in his own mind, about what you are to him.
If he is into you, he will try to spend time with you and take you out on dates.
He will typically be invested in getting to know you and what you are about.
He would be patient with you and would maintain a consistent channel of communication with you.
He may like you if he tends to look at you often and smile at you.
If he tends to follow this up with conversation as well and possibly flirting, this is even a stronger sign that he likes you.
On the other hand, he may be looking at you from time to time but not smiling.
He typically sees you as a really good friend that he is comfortable being around.
One of the best ways to know this for certain is to observe him around his other male friends.
You should listen for what he tends to call them.
If you notice that he also tends to call his male friends “bro” or “fam,” there is a good chance that he is putting you in the friendship category.
You should also observe his body language around you.
Your friend may be letting you know that he cares about you deeply as a friend.
He is not necessarily insinuating that he is “in love” with you.
There is a big difference between loving someone and being in love with someone.
If this is a friend that you have had for a while, he may feel a sisterly connection to you that makes him feel a deep sense of love and appreciation for you.
