Sometimes you just get the feeling that a particular guy likes you but for some reason he just doesn’t say or do anything to confirm what you feel. Like yesterday, an office mate told me this “Let’s say I have a friend who has a friend who likes you. What would you say to him?” :?:
My answer is “Maybe I’ll tell the friend of your friend that he should ask me personally?” And his answer? He said “Ooohh-kay.” Spell awkward :-?
I’ve been trying to ignore this gut feel but lately whenever he is around- I get this awkward feeling I didn’t have before, though I honestly want to think I’m just imagining things. And I’m seriously beginning to feel confused about it. Anyway, as I was cleaning up my laptop docs earlier, I’ve found this article I’ve written for my previous and deleted blog, and I think it suits the situation I am in now.
What are the signs that he does like you but is afraid to fall for you?
p>1. He wants contact but doesn’t want the conversation to divert to anything more personal. A sign that he is attracted to you is the fact that he wants to be in contact with you… and to be in activities where he knows you will be. But because he is afraid to fall for you, he will not get into conversation that is personal in anyway unless it’s him mentioning a quirk of yours… and even then you can tell he is afraid of the conversation getting any deeper.
2. He wants your attention but is afraid to say anything beyond pleasantries. Another sign that he is afraid to fall for you is that he will want to engage your attention but with what he considers safe topics. If you try and divert the conversation to a deeper level then he will flee.
3. He is overly sensitive to what you say especially if it concerns him. You will say something about him (in his hearing) that in your mind could be very mildly negative and he will react very defensively. It’s like he has a raw nerve when it concerns what you say about him but he will not pursue anything romantic with you. Another sign that he cares deeply about you (and your opinion of him); but he is afraid to fall for you.
4. He watches you… without seeming to do so. Another sign that he is attracted to you but is afraid to fall for you is that you will get the feeling that he is watching you while he is trying his best to avoid giving the impression that he is doing so. He will look at you through the sides of his eyes or through his sunglasses… so he doesn’t have to deal with you or others knowing that he likes you.
5. He sometimes imitates your deeds and speech when he is around you. A man who is attracted to you will mimic your expressions or even deeds… and you will see this in this man but he will never engage you beyond that point.
A man who likes you but is afraid to fall for you can be a source of great stress. Yes, I agree especially if you have to be with him 8 hours a day and 5 days a week. His body language tells you that he really likes you but he doesn’t say or do anything to confirm your feelings. Who says girls are the only ones that are hard to figure out? I don’t think so ;-)
