There's been this guy I've seen on and off for a few years, and everytime we get close he backs away and leaves. He's said he loves me and explains he leaves when he feels it's getting to the point of a relationship. I love him too... but obviously won't chase him. What the best way I should react in this situation? Could he still like me in the future?
Most Helpful Guy
No guy runs from a girl who is is truly in love with and interested in. If he keeps backing of, or runs away every time things get real, then it's quite clear he is not really interested. This also includes guys who have been hurt in previous relationships. You can only be hurt for so long before you realize that the girl you want to be with is worth the risk, and to him you are not. I'm assuming you guys have connected on a physical level (no necessarily sleeping together) but it is possible that he is interested in the physical or emotional attention but not the commitment behind it. I highly suggest you try to find someone who is more committed to you. Because you are not a second choice. You are not someone who can let a guy use you whenever it's convenient for him. When are your needs being met? When do you get to express your love on your terms? He might be a nice guy, but that does not excuse his lack of commitment. He wants all the rewards with none of the work, and you deserve better. So don't chase him or even pay him any more attention. Date another guy who is worthy of you who won't flake.0
