So I know this guy, not well, (barely), but I can sense that he seems to like me, at least more than I like him.
I wasn't interested in him before I noticed how much it seemed to bother him that I ignored him, and he was trying to make nice with me later. Then I was like... hmm
I don't get why. I'm attractive and kind, but he knows other people like this also. I don't mix with his friends, or his life.
The only thing I could think of is that he likes being himself around me, since I'm not judgmental. He clearly has a shortage of good friends he can trust, both guys and girls.
Would this kind of guy, truly 'like' me, and can be trusted as being a good partner? I'm afraid he's just fishing for people who he can find a comfort zone in, for his own selfish reasons.

No, I think this is a very good situation. Men exist in a highly competitive world - not just with each other, but with the world itself. We view that we are in a battle to protect ourselves and our families. It is essentially impossible for us to maintain that mental state full time; we will go insane without some downtime. Part of that downtime that we need needs to be in a nonthreatening environment. And this is the key to love with a man: If a woman can create for a man an environment of safety, trust, and intimacy in which he can recharge and let his guard down, he will fall in love with that woman. And, if you think about it, this is a big reason why, when a woman cheats on her man, he is that much more upset about it - because that is like allowing another threat enter his intimate safe-zone.
Successful guys are often A-type personalities with a bit of paranoia in them so they desperately need that safe zone. He senses he can establish one with you. If he can, he will be in love with you and, as long as you can maintain that, he should remain yours.0
