Why won't he ask me out ALREADY?

I met this guy at work. We flirt constantly. We have great eye contact. He took me out for drinks and paid. We made out. He is always around me. Asks if I missed him after his time off. We went out for drinks again and I paid. We made out again. We seem to be getting closer to each other as time goes on. I can feel the changes between us. He is always seeking me out. He is always telling me about his life and showing me pics of his kids and things they did. He asks me questions about my life and how things are going. He shows concern for me when I have an issue. He tells me I am a very beautiful woman. My question is why won't he ask for my phone number or ask me for a real date yet? We even joke about getting sexual.

  • The interest seems to be there. It's hard to say why he hasn't asked for your number yet. There could be many reasons including that he wants to take things slowly, especially when kids are involved. There are plenty of guys (and girls) who've been hurt badly and are a little gun-shy about relationships. I wouldn't rule out that he considers your times out together as dates. You probably will have to be patient with him and consider taking some of the steps to keep things moving along.

  • he might just be trying to see if you would work well together.
