How do I know If my best guy friend likes me back when I am terrible at reading the signs? Please, men and women, help!
I am 26, he 32. He & I were acquaintances 8 yrs back & we recently became reacquainted through a mutual friend. In 4 months of friendship we've become really close, spend most of our free time together, & as I've come to finally realize, we flirt a lot. We've both endured a lot since we first knew each other, he divorce, child custody, & hardships, and my fiance passed away 1 1/2 years back & I've dealt with hardships of my own. He has helped me to laugh again & enjoy life--I never thought I could love again, so this brings me great joy. The closer we've gotten, the more time I spend with his 10 yr old daughter & the rest of his family as well. He has never referred to me as a friend, perhaps he thinks of me as more? He shows he cares for my well-being, is a gentleman, and pays for me most of the time we hang out. I am afraid to make a move because I love what we have, but I want more. He is shy, kind, generous, hilarious, & intelligent: we mesh so well! Does he want more too? Help!
