Most Helpful Guy
Before you dismiss this guy completely I am going to tell you that to me he sounds a bit insecure. I say this because it reminds me a lot of myself honestly. I've been in several situations where I should have bit the bullet and taken the lead but didn't because I was scared, or waiting for certainty that the girl was definitely interested so I wouldn't have to worry about rejection. I would just keep an open mind, and if you really like the guy set up a date yourself. Its typically on the guy for sure, but nothing says you can't give him a little kick start. If he still seems wishy washy about things then probably cut him loose.
Not all guys that are indirect are players they are likely the opposite. And if you want something don't be afraid to bend the normal rules of dating. Honestly as a woman you have all the power, so don't sweat it. Because you will rather have tried and see where it went rather than just waiting for him while he is waiting for you. When everyone is waiting for the other nothing is going to happen.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
