during the 2 fire drills we had during the same classes he walked right passed me and talked to his friends instead.
he still acts like my friend except he holds my hand. Nothing has changed since we started going out then when we were friends. He hasn't hugged me and I would but he doesn't really give me any opportunities.
I am stumped but I really like him and want to make this work. By the way I have had about 8 boyfriends before that move at a lot faster paces and I wish he would be a little more like a boyfriend.
any adive? Help me plz!

I'm sorry, but it sounds an awful lot like you want a boyfriend of your own creation; one that behaves exactly as YOU think he should behave. THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEN. Learn to live with it.
Sure, your past relationships may have moved faster, but this is not any of your past ones. Consider also, that maybe a relationship that moves at a slower pace relative to your past allows more time for that strong emotional bond to develop before you are too involved in any other ways. Just a thought.
Lastly, this guy. Give him a bit of a break. He's new to this whole dating game, you are not. If you both like each other enough, then that is really all you need right now. Have patience with him. If there's one thing I have heard lots of women say, it's that men require patience.
Try to see his spending time with his friends not as a means to avoid you, but as proof that he has great friends whom he will always be there for, and that his ability to show commitment will be carried over to his relationship with you.
I just read your whole post.
