I've been dating a guy for about 3 months now. We get along great and have a super time together.
Only problem is, he doesn't kiss me... we never, ever kiss. We only kissed in the very beginning on our 3rd date when things progressed (the kiss wasn't very good but in my experience the first kiss is usually awkward and then gets better and better with time). He says he just isn't a kisser - that it doesn't do it for him. He says he prefers to go down on me which he does all the time. I love that he does that, but I really long for the physical connection that only kissing brings. I feel like he is trying to avoid this level of intimacy.
He has made it very clear he cares about me. It is also very obvious that the way he shows he cares for me is through listening to me and learning about me. He's a mental lover if that makes any sense. He has told me several times that he prefers me to open up to him about things that bother me because it makes him feel like he is contributing to our relationship.
One thing he does love kissing is my cheek and will do it over and over again for a minute. He also finds reasons to touch me here and there (no big sexual thing but at least it's something).
Although it is clear he cares for me deeply, I am starting to wonder if I am dangerously close to the Friend Zone...

Yeah maybe he doesn't know how, but if he is closer to your age how could he not? That cheek thing is weird, kinda awkward, lol. I don't know about this one, I love kissing and I think most people do. I could make out for hours when I like someone! But, just because I don't get it doesn't mean it is not a thing. Yes, some people do consider it more intimate than anything sexual. If so, he should want that intimacy too. Can you really deal with this for the long term though? I have made excuses and tried to be okay with things with men that I just really would not be happy with for long.1
