So I’ve known one of my guy friends for a few years now and we’ve recently been talking more since he moved to my city. We went to a 2-day social gathering where the first day he was always around me and we even had lunch together with a few people but ended up talking to each other the whole time since he came to sit next to me. Outsiders mentioned to me that he looked so happy when we were talking and that we would make a cute couple. The next day I he didn’t make that much of an effort and I got confused when he was socializing with other people and being kindof flirty with some girls. I’ve noticed if I’m talking to another guy friend, he will come up and say hello and try to get in the conversation but if he can’t he’ll leave so I have to include him someway so he won’t leave. Whenever he ha to leave he’ll always say bye to me and say “I’ll see you in a bit” or “I’ll see you Sunday”. We’ve had serious talks about our views of marriage and some talks about just lighthearted stuff as I try to make him laugh because he’s kind of serious and not too expressive-kindof like Kanye West. I try to talk to him but I’m not sure if he’s interested in that way or not.
at a social gathering it is really hard to tell because the two of you are not alone, you are at a place where the main purpose is to meet new people and socialize. when the two of you are alone for example eating out, walking outside, on the bus, etc. those are the moments you can tell if someone actually likes and in what way, just a friend or like as a sexual partner. im not sure if you like him or consider him as just a friend.
Good point. I am beginning to like him as more than a just a friend especially since we’ve been friends for a few years. I’m just not sure if he’s interested. I thought he may be since he could’ve easily spent most of his time socializing with new people.
