So, I'm 23 and he's 27. We've been talking for 4 months. Nothing sexual has happened between us but he has continously expressed interest. We've been on a few dates and I kept getting the vibe that he wasn't looking for a relationship so I made it clear that we have different agendas and there is no point in stalling things any longer. I've cut communication multiple times but somehow he always finds a reason to spark a conversation. Until the last time I cut it off after a date and he messaged about a week later and said that he keeps thinking about me and that he really likes me and when AGAIN I told him that he can't be what I need and llikewise on my side, he said then he wants to take it further and be exclusive. Generally, I am very paranoid, especially of his "type", and so, how do I know this is my paranoia getting the best of me and that he actually is genuine?
