He may actually like you and want to still have you in his life.
He is not willing to just completely let you go.
There are guys who may find a girl to be humorous or fun to be around.
These guys may want to still be friends with that girl even though they no longer feel a romantic spark with them.
Oftentimes, you will run into these kind of scenarios when the guy initially thought that there was romantic chemistry, only to end up realizing that there really wasn’t.
This does happen quite often.
A guy may feel an initial attraction and interest in a girl who he chooses then to start dating.
However, as he begins to learn more and more about her and they interact, he realizes that he doesn’t feel this chemistry as much anymore.
It so happened that whatever he thought he had with this girl as far as a romantic connection is concerned is no longer there.
He didn’t expect this to happen. He truly was initially attracted and interested in the girl.
However, he has gotten to interact with her a little more and realizes that he is not as initially excited about her as he once was.
He still likes the girl as a person.
He has gotten to know her a lot better during this time and may feel that she does have a great personality.
However, the romantic connection is no longer there. He can’t really bring himself to look at this girl as someone he would want to be with on a romantic level over a sustained period of time.
He has developed some rapport with this girl and doesn’t want to lead her on.
He wouldn’t feel that this would be fair.
Again, he still likes her as a person.
He has gotten to know her and believes that there are elements of her personality that may even coincide with his own.
However, looking at her as anything more than just a person he finds to have a great personality isn’t feasible.
He has lost that romantic spark.
He may still want to be friends with you after a break up or rejection simply because he does find you to be a uniquely compelling and interesting person.
He would like to maintain a friendship with you as a result.
He would rather do that than lead you on.
He would rather do that because he just can’t see a romantic future with you.
However, he knows that if he were to have a conversation with you, he would never be bored.
He knows that if he were to hang out with you, he would have a good time.
He just can’t see it going any further than that because somewhere along the line that spark was lost.
It may have been something you said or did.
It may have been a way you responded to something he said or asked.
It may be a certain way you view a particular issue.
It may be a set of beliefs that you have that don’t agree with his own.
It may simply be the fact that you don’t excite him the way his ex did and he is looking for that exact kind of spark from someone.
It really could be a number of things that you really can’t fix even if you tried.
These are his own preferences and for that reason, if you were to desperately start trying to meet them, you would only keep guessing and repeating the same failed acts or responses.
