I've been dating this guy for the past 6 weeks. We really hit it off. Have a lot in common, similar sense of humor, and so-on.
Well, basically we started off being super flirtatious and sweet with each other. A few dates ago, he had told me he wanted to take it slow, but he does really like me. His one friend had told me that he doesn't stop talking about me. I had said, well why has he backed off a little then? To which his friend said, give it time, he's been really hurt in the past.
So have I. And we've hooked up twice now... and I told him that we shouldn't because I get emotionally attached, and he said he does too... I'm a boatload of confusion... should I run from this situation or be patient? I really do like him, but it makes me nervous with his hesitation.

Could go either way here, to be honest. Has he gone into detail about what happened in the past? Does he strike you as the player type? One thing with guys, we don't always want to date, but we still always want sex, they're two separate thing to us, or most of us anyway. Don't let your guard down, but don't completely put a wall up either. And that's advice I'd give you for dating in general. At the end of the day, you can only 100% trust yourself. I mean, you know this guy better than us. How did he take the idea of not hooking up? He said he gets attached like you, and if he's on the level, he should be down to go slow. But you can't have it both ways. You can't say let's take it slow, then hook up an hour later, haha. So have another conversation about where you see this going, where he's at, where you're at, and where you'd like it to be. The friend could be genuine about him talking about you all the time, but you never know if he's just helping his buddy out. Ultimately you'll have to go with your gut.
