He may not be ready for it.
He may feel like his emotions are not on the same level as yours.
There may be a part of him that wants this relationship to work but isn’t sure if he is capable of ever feeling the way you do.
He just isn’t and it is overbearing.
It can be really scary for people when they know that their partner or admirer has much stronger feelings for them than they do.
It can make them feel uneasy because they begin to ask themselves where they can go from here.
If they can’t match the level of emotion and passion this other person has, why be in a relationship?
What will become of the relationship?
Will they be able to match their partner’s emotions ever?
If they are not able to, then what?
He gets really nervous because he doesn’t know how all this is going to go.
He may not want to be the one to break your heart.
He may not want to have to tell you that he doesn’t feel the same way about you.
He may worry about all the expectations that you will have.
All of this can be very daunting for him and he gets really nervous.
This could be what you are looking at.
He may be a guy who is nervous because he worries about what all this means.
He worries about the fact that he won’t be able to have the same feelings as you do at any moment in time.
He worries about the fact that he may not meet whatever expectation you might have of him in this relationship.
On the flip side, this guy may have also gotten nervous when you revealed how you felt because he may actually feel that same way.
However, he doesn’t quite know how or if he should express it.
He may not want to chase you away by giving or revealing too much at once.
He knows that he feels the same way but at the same time, he may be afraid to appear vulnerable if he were to tell you his true feelings.
Hence, you could actually be looking at a situation where you could easily have the two opposite effects.
A guy who may not feel the same way at this time on the one hand and a guy who feels the same way but is afraid to express it on the other hand.
Asking him about his true feelings can help you figure this out.
He may be nervous at first.
He may not really want to divulge it.
However, you should be firm about wanting to know.
There is nothing wrong in you trying to find out where his emotions lay.
The last thing you should want is to put yourself in a situation where you are developing even stronger feelings for this guy over time and not having that love reciprocated.
This would obviously be a waste of your time and emotion.
You are better than this.
You don’t need to keep doing guesswork.
You can be certain today of where he is coming from by simply asking and being firm about wanting a true answer.
This is how you are able to move forward with a good idea of where things are headed in this interaction.
The more you know, the better you will feel about whether or not you are interacting with the right person for you.
