Could that account for some on and off dynamics in showing interest? Is it always as simple as "he's not interested"? As a female, I know I can absolutely be into someonw but be so nervous I never do anything about it. Pop culture tells us that for guys, this is just an excuse and that he's either not into you or has a girlfriend, or you are his ego boost. I think I may fall into either the ego boost category or this guy feels what I feel but is unsure of how to approach me. He acts nervous when we're alone together but is talkative on the phone. He stresses that he's unattached/single (unsolicited, mind you, because I never asked about his status). But he's not moving things forward. He'll start text convos then stop once I respond. So, is it juvenile of me to think he could be legitimately scared or is that hogwash?
Guys, Guys: Do guys get scared of their emotions or what they know a potential relationsip could be?

I feel that the on/off indecision thing occurs because guys are always looking for the next best thing and this is why I feel that women should never wait around for a guy to make a decision. This is often described as "fear of commitment", which is accurate but at the same time, it's a euphemism that obscures how rude the behavior really is. The whole thing of starting conversations and then dropping off is something that guys do to keep their options open -- to keep a potential relationship interest close without actually having to start a real relationship.
No, guys don't think about their emotions as much as women do. Next question.0
