I have been dating this guy for a month and he was a friend but sorta an accquatiance at the same time before we started dating. We are both 16 by the way. Whenever I pass by him in the hallway he doesn't wave, smile, or do anything he just continues talking to his friend while I'm walking right in front of him. I think I'm overreacting and it's probably normal. He doesn't hug, kiss, or touch me in any way in public. The weird thing is that with his ex he held her hand in public and hugged her from behind. He doesn't do any of that to me but we have been dating for a month. He only dated his ex for a few days tho. And during lunch he sits 3 tables from me and he knows where I sit but doesn't approach me at all which is a bit strange. And I forgot to mention that almost half of his friends are female which I don't know if I should worry about. The only time he touches me is on the bus when he puts his arm around me and kisses me on the cheek then gets up a few minutes later because he doesn't like sitting down apparently. And i don't think his friends know we are dating. Not sure why he hasn't told them. When we wait for the same metro bus he doesn't even introduce me to his friends or anything he just smiles and waves, that's all. Maybe this is normal and I'm overreacting since it's my first relationship. I also set up a date with him but he cancelled since he got in trouble so he couldn't go. I am planning on setting up another one next week, but is this normal in a relationship or am I overreacting?

Awww honey I'm sorry. This is definitely not normal and you should dump him ASAP. a boyfriend should be someone who cares about you and wants to show you off to all his friends. Sounds like he's an ass... Lots of 16 year old guys are though. I'm sure it's not you. You could always talk with him about how this makes you feel if you still want to try to work things out but in my opinion, there's no hope for a guy like that until he grows up and/or grows a pair2
