    So I use to date this guy a few years ago

    when we broke up we didn't talk for over a year now we're friends we hang out often and things are just as cool as can be except I'm almost positive he still likes me that way he hints a lot of things towards me and I just ignore it really but one thing he does is show me...

    Hint? Paranoia? Sometimes I get too paranoid

    with a certain issue to which I thought it was a hint. Anything relatable?

    Sure Can

    I can take a hint!!! Who am I kidding I am a man and we don’t do hints very well. But we can read the writing on the wall sometimes.

    There's this girl in school

    who I suspect likes me,we don't talk much but she recently started talking to me. Today she hit me playfully while I wasn't looking which I think is pretty random. Do you guys think she's interested in me?

    I for one am likely to respond ambiguously to

    something without considering it first = engage brain before mouth. Friends know me a dare not offended. If I do to you, it'll not be meant to hurt you as I am consciously tactile. Just to show how words can be misunderstood. But if yours was meant, I can take it as I'm thickset...

    I was taught that it is always a plus to "know

    when to leave." I am very intuitive by nature anyways...but Ive almost perfected reading little clues by [host, boyfriend, party atmosphere,] that the time to go is now. We all have that one friend who stays wayyyyyy past GO time. I am proud to say....I will never be that friend...

    I hate when you're trying to tell someone you

    have a crush on them and they don't get the hint.

    We met last summer, got hot

    and heavy into romance, she had to leave at the end of the summer. We sent serious love letters back and forth. She flew all the way here to visit me twice. I flew to see her once too. 3000 miles apart! The last time she came she seemed distant and I saw her texting with a man...

    But when you read all my texts,

    you never answer. Who else could you be talking to when you say I'm the only one. But for how long? I'm not sympathetic to the distance keeping you from me. Maybe it's for the better. You know I'm upset, you know all this silence is going to be the death of me. I don't think you...

    OK, I Hear You...

    I hate sugar coating and reading between the lines. I can take a hint, though. Next time, telling me directly would be nicer. Thanks everyone who is a hint addict, you annoy me.

    I never felt so old. Last night I was working

    as a bouncer. All I had to do was sit there and check IDs. All of a sudden I realized I was the oldest one there. I can remember not that long ago being the youngest person in the bar.

    Feel like to many people are afraid to hurt my

    feelings. I'd rather someone be honest and hurt than lie to me and feel better. So when I feel like they are hinting something I run.

    Please Pass The Hint Please..

    Most of the time I can take a hint, just pass me a note the other times.. It's funny sometimes someone gives me a hint ok fine, but then they go to explain what the hint was for.... Isn't that defeating the purpose of giving hints in the first place??

    I know it's over now,

    I just needed time to understand that. I still love you with all my heart but it's clear to me now, that you don't feel the same. I may have not have been able to accept this before but now I'm ready, Im ready to let go, no matter how much it hurts.
