He Likes Me, He...

When I was in middle school, I used to play the he likes me, he likes me not game. Now, years later, I don’t give a damn...except, I’m wondering about Brian. I mean, the last few weeks, I’ve been getting some heavy mixed signals.

*Long hugs, like we haven’t seen each other in years
*He stares at me, when I catch him looking, he doesn’t break my gaze
*Playful taps
*Meeting of the friends
*I may meet his family next week. (I NEVER let anyone meet my family)
*Main course hangout days (Friday & Saturday nights, sometimes, Thursdays)

He takes off in t-minus 6 weeks...

So, what do you think? What signals do YOU drop when you like someone? (I always take the indirect/direct Diva approach!)

yeah he probably likes you. as far as me i'm more of a direct person. if i like a woman then i'm just going to tell her in some form or fashion. i like to get things out in the open and take it from there.

For real for real...A guy mostly wont hang with you that hard if he doesnt like you. Maybe he feels you wont like him or respect because you know all his dirty business so he just rather play it safe and not mess up ya'll friendship.

If I like a friend, Ill probably do what he is doing, playful taps, hanging out, hugs etc. You dont wanna come off too strong because they are a friend, so I feel he likes you. You gotta be slick when approaching someone close to you and thats what he is doing I think. Are you giving him the positive feedback he needs? You gotta go something apart from hugs for him to get that clue like.."oh she like me too" and for him to get more aggressive. oh else...yall will be writing "oh i liked you back in the day" letters after t-minus 6 weeks.

@Tunde - Direct is good, but the guys that approach me in a direct manner...9 out of 10 times, I'm not feeling them....it's always the one's I don't like who have the balls to come at me... you know, the vertically challenged guys, or guys who have cartoon hands...

@Journey - lol at "oh i liked you back in the day" letters

I think I'm giving positive reinforcement...I flirt back a little, return the hug. What do you suggest I do, show-up in a trench coat & heels, with a plate of chocolate chip cookies???

This is me to a T! WHY does that tend to happen?

Anyhow, yeah, I say Brian is diggin' ya. Especially the staring thing. It's like he's in a daze the way you describe it. His mind is probably full of thoughts while he's staring at you.

What do you have to lose by asking him whatsup?

@ Cheekie & DaniB - It's funny...I guess cause we've been friends now, and we know each others dirty little secrets...it's hard to imagine having a relationship with him...

Trust me, these secrets would make mouths drop!!!

You know he likes you! He probably also really values your friendship and doesn't want to risk messing it up. If you want it to happen, you have to show him that you want more than just friendship or a good sex buddy.

he probably likes you and will miss you. your friendship won't be over when he moves.

I guess I feel like I'm in a quandry, because I never felt this strongly about someone before...who was just a friend...anyone else, ehhhhhh, I'm not at a loss....I usually have all the answers...this one...I'm confused
