It's official that my guy friend likes me but I don't know if he wants to be in a relationship because he will be leaving soon. Before I met him he told my dad that he had a girlfriend during high school and when he graduated he decided to go to the air force four years later ( when he was finished ) the girl that he was with was married to someone else and he had to find out by someone else. A year later that's when we met and we have been so close we connected and have a special bond and he loved that. He knows what type of girl I was ( I don't talk to guys or flirt, if I have a boyfriend I don't talk to no guys unless they are my friends ) but I still think he is scared I want to prove him wrong but he told me I can find someone better than him but he is wrong. How can I prove him wrong?
Would you prove someone that you can make them happy, even though he/she heart was broken?

Honestly, there's nothing much you can do. His past experience will make it very difficult for him to believe that you'll still be around for him after he comes back.0

This kinda reminds me of my ex and I, he and I met 3 months before he went into the Air Force. He was still healing from his last gf (from high school) and he had a lot of trust issues. By the time had to leave, we had built a strong enough bond and trust to decide that we were going to put in the work and see where it takes us. We agreed to be faithful, we sent handwritten letters, phone calls and visits as often as we could.
If you can have a serious sit down with him and let him know that you want to give it a shot. The proof will have to be in the pudding, in how much effort you are willing to put into it.. My relationship lasted 2 years long distance, but we struggled to close the gap and ultimately couldn't. So keep in mind that long distance relationships don't work well for long periods of time, at least generally speaking.. You'll have to practice patience in a big way, insecurities may surface more, and trust will be tested.0
