- Ask him what we are
- Go with the flow
Most Helpful Guy
Your just going to have to ask him, plain and simple, it seemed to me that he was testing the waters when you brought up your ex's questions, he might feel you have rejected him, perhaps not as well, but you guys need to get things straight.
You need to ask him and make him realize that you do like him just that you didn't know at the time what to say since both of you guys have never talked about being in a relationship.
Trust me when I say this to you guys are very simple most of the time, but we do have complex feeling and hard time communicating them. I have found that communication between people is relationship to any type of relationship most especially if you are dating and even beyond that if you guys like each other enough. Guys are mind readers and we get just as anxious and nervous as the next person, we are just usually hiding it more.
The only other advice I can give you that might help is that if you guys do start dating make sure you know what expectations you both have out of it, if you don't it usually gets messy when later on you find out you both were looking for different things, if discussed I believe you can come to an understanding. Also you should show interest in things the other one likes you dont need to like it like they do but show them you are trying to be part of their world.
