we talked more tho, every day while he was away at work. He would come home. And it would mainly just feel like a sex thing. We'd hang out with other people around, not touch until it was time for bed. We started hanging more And doing things together. I got feelings. i told him how i felt. I was intense about it. He told me we were just friends so left him be. That only lasted for about 2 days before he was texting me on his own. He has told me its fine for me to go out and screw someone else. i think he would do the same. This last time he was home though was intense and different. We went out to a bar together. He left when i wanted to leave. Even though he did flirt with other girls that night. We spent the next 5 days together. Cuddling on the couch, talking, falling asleep together, making supper, grocery shopping even. We have never had that closeness before. He has been extra affectionate. i figured as soon as he knew how i felt, and if he didn't feel the same he would be done.
I went home for one day, he texted me and asked where i was. wanted me to come to his moms house to try some food she made. I went up later. And it was very unlike the him I've known. he surprised me with my fav candy cause a few nights prior i mentioned them. He gave me a hug right after.
He has never really randomly kissed me a lot or shown a super affectionate side. This time he randomly kissed me in cute spots a few times and would tickle or rub my back.
I asked one night what was he like, was he a affectionate person. He had me in his arms and asked "well, am i?"
Now he's back to work working 12 + hours n he does text sometimes, but not often, just casual. What is this?
