Guessing at the Meaning of a Head Shake
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Female
What does it mean when an ex boyfriend that your parents broke you up and you still like him but you don't know if he still likes you and you haven't seen him for 4 weeks until today, what if you see each other and stair at each other and then he shakes his head at you but then he looks down? Please help me. Thanks, o yeah he is 3 years older than me and I am 13.
Ah, now you're asking me to be a mind reader! That's like asking me "Does Billy Like Me" and expecting me to know without even knowing Billy or what he's like or what you're like or anything else. The ONLY person who knows what he was feeling is HIM.
He could be sad that he doesn't have you any more, and not willing to look at you because it reminds him of everything he lost. He could be sad that you didn't fight with your parents and insist you would keep seeing him no matter what. He could be angry that he wasn't strong enough to fight for you and convince your parents to let you two keep seeing each other. He could be upset that he did whatever it was that upset your parents in the first place, that caused them to step in.
Only he knows. And the only way to find out is to talk to him. There must be some way that you can just stop and talk for five minutes to see how he feels about all of this, and if nothing else to say that you'll stay friends and maybe in a year or two when you're older, you can date for real.
