did the people u knew who did that thought the girl was pretty or liked them at all?
If they are with you then they must like you to some respect. Are you able to spend time with just him talking? thats a clear sign. If he is happy to be with you and just talk about whatever for a while, the longer the better, then he at the least enjoys yoir company. Keep in mind many guys and girls get nervous that the people they are with dont actually like them but in 99% of cases this isn't true.
but I'm talking about the people u know
yes, they still liked them. They enjoyed their comoany and they still made each other happy.
the thing that confuses me is that if they liked them why did they only see them as the easy option?
Honestly, if this is something he told you either he just said it to give AN answer, or he legitimately was never really interested at all. In my experience I haven't seen the later.
"seen the later" meaning?
I haven't seen people in that second category, the "legitimately was never interested at all" one. So everyone i've known that has wanted to date someone for the sake of dating someone liked them a little at least, and still enjoyed spending time with them.
like if I really like the girl I'm not gonna take the first girl that comes my way
