I Hate Getting Mixed Signals

    I really feel stupid right now.

    I feel like I'm just wasting my time with this guy. No matter what I try to do he constantly ignores me. Today is his birthday and no matter what ideas I gave him to do today he ignored them. I don't understand why he feels the need to shut me out.

    Don't know about this guy,

    I really like him but I'm receiving mixed signals. Don't think I've ever been so confused about a guy before. :/

    It Can Be Embarrassing

    I try and make sure I have the right vibe and that all the signals are clear, but let's face it...you can do everything right but things are going to go wrong. It's almost inevitable that you will get a, or a lot of, mixed signals from someone and misinterpret them, the thing is...

    Before I met you I was

    so innocent and helpless and it just so happens to be that you are the total opposite. You make me feel like I matter but everything is about s*x, sure I've done a couple things in the past, but If I don't want to do anything I don't want to...you can't make me. I'll never be...

    Mixed Signals

    17 F Well, I know a girl that recently came out as lesbian. A few days ago we went out to talk about a girl she likes, but broke her heart many times. She couldn't get her out of her mind. Since then we're out together every day. We haven't talked about her anymore. Everynight...

    There's a guy I really love.

    One day he shows me all the affection I'll ever need. The next we are just friends. It's so confusing cus I want him so bad(not in the sexual way). I just want him to be straight up with me and tell me how he feels.

    First this guy wants to be friends,

    then he wants me to be the love of his life, now he doesn't think a long distance relationship is healthy. Now he wants to cut contact completely. Make up your damn mind already.

    Confusing

    I suppose I get a lot of confusing mixed signals (from a lot of people) and I've been just trying to make sense of them. One of my really close friends does a lot of this and I think that's just how he is and I think as we get closer to people we understand them better and accept...

    Seriously, I understand the situation is hard

    but when you're calling me your gf without ever asking me out or calling me babe and baby and this time it's not sarcastic... What am I suppose to get from this? Do I call you my friend or are you seriously more than that..

    I think the hardest thing

    for me is not knowing whether or not that person still has the same feelings for you. There's so much pointing to "he loves me" but yet so many things pointing to "he loves me not" It's the most uncomfortable roller coaster I've ever been on.

    I Like To See Black Or White No Grey Please.

    I hate getting mixed signals. The reason I hate it so much now than ever was because I spent four years of my life with my ex who gave me mixed signals that he loved me only to later find out that he was waiting for the right one for him and until then I was just a standby.

    Tell me girls PLEASE.

    .. It has been said and largely agreed amongst my female friends (which form the majority of my friendships) that, I quote, ' every girl should have a Karl' but it's bitter sweet, they all love me on multiple levels I can shop, cook, I'm domesticated (lol) having been a working...

    My Mother Is Horrible For This...

    I'm horribly undisciplined, and I can't even start to get into how much worse my brother is. Why? Because my mom could never stick to punishments, and moreso because she'd always punish things that didn't warrant it (very harshly, too), like me being on the internet too much (she...

    He told me he didn't know I liked him.

    I guess texting back and forth every day, all day for a month, hanging out, kissing and telling him "I really like you." must have thrown him a bit. I was seeing a police officer who eventually I cut ties with. He made me feel like I wasn't enough and that's never ok. In the...

    A Softer Shade Of Lies

    We were saying our goodbyes when he handed me the ticket stubs and the program from the play I had purchased tickets, and we had attended for his birthday. It had been a lovely day and I was floating. I must have had that quizzical face because he said, "To put in our memory box...

    and shy. I would always say hi to him and he always says hi back and smiled and gets so awkward. He would always stare at me so I told my cousin that I thought he was cute and she said she would hook me up . My cousins boyfriend is really close to him and he talked to him for me...
