I am so confused! I've known this guy for about 6 months, he's a great guy. When I met him he had just split up with his girlfriend of 5 years and he just moved out of her house 4 months ago. We started hanging out more and he started becoming more affectionate, I brushed it off because I did not him to get the wrong impression of me. So, he was coming over a couple times a week and when he'd go he'd say things like we need to do this more often, I enjoyed our time together, etc. We haven't kissed or anything but he has kissed me on the cheek. Some days he'll call me baby, hun other days he'll say nothing and be distant. Here's the confusion factor. I think he likes me but I'm not sure. I told him it was obvious that I was interested, he replied with "Its not that I am not interested, its just that my life is so complicated right now with me just having gotten out of that long relationship. I am content with being friends (for now)." So, whatever...that's all fine but I keep getting mixed signals. I got tired of it one day and said I'm done, I can't do the back and forth thing anymore because it's frustrating and confusing. I said take care, good luck with everthing...these are his exact words "Actually I want to do you real bad. But I don't want to get sprung again. I have to tell you that. Sorry but you are my ideal woman and I am scared of that. I like you so much." What the hell? Now I'm even more confused. He says I'm his dream woman but now I haven't seen him for a week. I understand that he is scared or maybe he's not and it's all a front. I need some advice on how I can help him not be scared of me. Is this a lost cause? What can I do?Thank you much!
