He's Flirting and Avoiding Me
Visitor's Question from a 16-20 year old Female
We broke up around 5 months ago. Recently when we've been out with friends having a drink. He's been a lot nicer with me looking after me, letting me wear his hat, acting like hes doesn't act with other girls. Letting me wear his jacket, and being very defensive of me.
When i was walking home with him he invited him and i ended up spending hours on end with him. He flirted with me, and was all over me. I told him he'd regret it and his answer was 'Why would i?'
But since, he's been avoiding me slightly more. Say if i was inside he would go outside, rather blatantly, and its really confused me. Some advice would be great.
It sounds like he still cares a lot for you. His protecting you and wanting you to wear his clothes are clear signs. And of course his spending hours with you alone later on makes that really clear!
But it also sounds like he's worried about your feelings. I.e. why would you tell him he'd regret spending time with you? Because his heart would be broken? That's not a very encouraging thing to say :)
I would be more encouraging if you do want him back. Let him know that you *enjoyed* your time with him and that you don't regret it at all. That you'd love to do it again. You need to take the lead here, so he knows it's OK.
