I'll try to make this short. This boy has been off an on with me for about 2 months now. He'll text me a lot one week, not talk to me another week. He'll love what I have to say one week, then he'll berate me for what I say the next week. He ignores me one week, and doesn't the next. You know, just off an on like. He's bought me dinner, chocolate, called me pretty in his roundabout way. Walks me home and says he can't wait to hug me...so SOMETHING is there...
So I took my mothers' advice and cooled it for a bit. I took my energy out of the situation, focused on myself, and was okay. Until this weekend when I saw him again (we're all part of a big group of friends.)
Friday night he saw me and I tried to act cool like I wasn't fazed. But as soon as he walked into the room I felt so nauseous and sick. I really do like him, but I get very insecure when I'm not sure if the feeling is returned or not. Add on to that that I catch snippets of him talking about hi ex over and over and over again but they broke up a WHILE ago. (So my mom says for me to just wait for him to fully get over her, but I'm impatient so that's hard for me...plus I feel like I'm in some secret competition with her). But when I return home that Friday night he sends me a text that says "I'm glad I got to see you tonight." <<< WTF?
Saturday night/Sunday morning all of us go to a diner to get food. And he sits across from me and OF COURSE I can't eat because I feel so blegh about him. But he'd like play footsie with me, and playfully wrestle me to get the shotgun seat in in friends car. MEANWHILE him and his friend start rating EVERY girl who passes by, which to me is 1) RUDE 2) saddening because I was just sitting there listening to him calling other girls pretty the entire night...
After that I told him a button fell off of my coat and he sewed it back on for me...and according to my mom any guy who SEWS for you likes you. But then sometimes I feel VERY unliked.
I DON'T KNOW GIRLS. I hope you read this/understood it. Sometimes I just want to cry because the back and forth of it all is so jarring. Sometimes I just want to suck it up and be strong and say f*** him. Then sometimes I just want to not be so shy and maybe ask him on a date.
I'm not sure what to do. Please help. In ANY way. =/

OMG I'm dealing with the same thing!
sadly, I can't take my own advice, because it's easier said then done, but here's some anyway :P
You could probably find a guy way better, who acts all sweet and nice EVERY week, and not stupid on and off crap! That's what I'm trying to do, it's hard when you like a guy though, so maybe if you cut off contact for a bit, I know you said you're in the same big group of friends, but maybe if you ask a few of those friends to do something WITHOUT him, that might help! I deleted the guy I'm crazy about, off everything I could, including his number out of my phone! Ignore the texts! Us girls are better then that, and I wish guys weren't so heartless, because he obviously hasn't thought about how it's making you feel, but then again he might not no you're into him!0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
