Original Visitor's Question from a 31-40 year old Female
Ive been friends with this guy for 5 years. in high scholl we would talk her and there, since he had a gril friend his senior year we only talked in math class.
Now we are in college, we started out just walking around the campus and talking for a while and then he always had to leave. Now we carpool together and he picks me up and drops me off at my house. He says he doesnt want me to deal with traffic.
We then begin to text message each other. The weird thing is is that when i do text message him he always replays within the hour at the lastest. If he doesnt replay after 7pm, which is when he works out, he will call me and we will talk for an hour and a half. we usually talk every day or text message each other every day. How do i know if he likes me as a freind or as a potential somebody?
Then all of a sudden he asks me over his house to hang out and play pool. We've done it for the past 3 weeks and then just last week he invited to ice skating and after we ice skated he asked if i was up for pool. so we went to his house and then after we played pool we watched a movie.
Then last Sunday he asked if i wanted to have dinner with him so i said "why not." Just later this week he asked me if i wanted to see a movie with him.
I dont know if this is considered as dating or just hangin out. What am i suppose to do?? I dont want to give him a hug and then he might think "ahh she likes me and i dont like her like that." I want to know if he like me as a good friend to hang out with or as a potential dating person. What signs am i suppose to look for?

Look for signs
Ok this is tough ask yourself if e gets red faced when he is around you or does he shake or look at you alot. it is hard i am in the same type of situation but there is hope. look for signs you will know what they are by what you have told me try to joke around with him like say so want to go out with me or do u think we would go out on dates or whatever but you won't know if u don't either ask him or lay it cool and casually mention it even if he doesn't like you which ot sounds like he does it isn't the end of everything you could still be friends. i am sure you will get what you want! best wishes kate : )
