Every time I am with this person I catch him looking at me and sometimes he looks away so fast that it is almost funny, but it's nice to be looked at. When we are talking and having a few beers strokes a beer bottle which turns me on. He listens to every one I say and remembers things I don't even remember telling him. We have been friends for about 8 months and I just want him to kiss me but he hasn't. Am I miss reading his cues?
NO . sounds like you are reading them very well. What you are maybe not reading is his shyness and inability to express more fully how he feels and especialy to take the next step.
I guess that he doesn't want to spoil what he has. That he's holding back because he enjoys talking with you, looking at you . he'd rather stay in that enjoyable comfort zone than risk asking you for a date, getting rejected and being left with nothing (because you'd cease talking).
Just ask him . go for it. Or help him ask you. Next time he does that big signal with the bottle . sat#y something carefully. Tell him you wish you were made of glass. Hell go "Huh?" And you could explain . before you know it you'll be frothing too!
i don't think you're misreading - it sounds like he's into you.
the glance away shouldn't be surprising - these days men can't sit & appraise a woman when she hasn't given explicit permission, plus of course there's the "caught out" factor. the fact that you're catching him at it a lot shows how keen he is to look you over.
the listening/remembering strikes me as being good indicators that he's interested in you.
could be he's shy, or nervous of making a wrong move & ending up either rejected or slapped with an harassment suit :P (i'm not sure whether this is a work colleague or something else)
You're probably reading his clues right, but what clues are you sending? I'm not going to kiss a girl unless I get some sign that it's okay. If you don't send that sign, I would hold back. So, probably, would he.
Sounds like to me, this guy is into you, yet at the same time, he is extremely shy and not very confident! I dated a guy like that once, and found it very frustrating! Took this guy for ever to even kiss me and I thought, wow.is he nuts or just stupid? So read the signs, his inability to ask you out, if he's into you, should speak volumes. If your confident in yourself, ask him out.
