Sweatshirt/jacket/something you got them and you see them still wearing it, do you think they still like you? What do you think? And guys who wouldn't get their things back from the girl, why is that? (I'm trying to get across that I still like my ex. I still hang out with him and wear his sweatshirt still, and I see he still uses the mp3 I got him for Christmas.)
Honestly? The mp3 is nothing. A guy won't use that because he cares about who gave it to him. He'll use it because he wants to use it.
And when it comes to wearing sweatshirts... again, guys don't notice.
You know the stereotype... guy comes home, wife wants him to notice her hair, new shoes, ear-rings, whatever it is... and he has no clue, even with prompting from her?
It's a true stereotype. Guys really and truly do not notice those things. And often don't care when they do notice.
The idea that the clothes you wear would be conveying some sort of hidden message about your emotions for him...is such an unusual, weird, strange, foreign idea ... it literally could never occur to him.
Do I think? It's a speculative question hon. It's really hard to do at your age, but you should just straight-up tell him what your feelings are. Many young people don't express themselves straight-forwardly because they're afraid of being rejected. Don't have this fear! If it's meant to be, it's meant to be. If it isn't, there's a better fish in the sea. Ask him vaguely if you're having confidence issues. Don't be surprised if he'd rather be friends, especially if you dumped him.
for me personally I wear my ex's stuff still just becuase I don't really care.. the only thing that might suggest they still like you is if it has any type of reference back to you.. like your last name on the sweatshirt otherwise we just wear stuff without thinking about it..
If it's just a sweatshirt/jacket he bought for you - I'd guess he probably doesn't read too much into that. He might take more notice or read a little more into it if it was HIS personal sweatshirt/jacket you were still wearing. As for the MP3, I don't think that means anything other than him just wanting to listen to some music. Not to say he doesn't still like you - maybe give him a little space and try talking to him down the road.
