Who can tell me what to do if you have fallen in love with someone........?
who shows outward signs of feeling the same, but doesn't express it verbally because the individual maybe is shy or guarded? What has or hasn't worked for you and why?
Ok, I am going to clarify a bit more. It hasn’t been long since we’ve been friends, yet it feels like I’ve known him longer than this. We are alike in a lot of ways (scary) and we each have been able to help the other one out in areas in which the other one is a little weaker in. We have friends in common. As of right now, the level has been just the friendship thing, although, as you know, women seem to develop feelings a little faster for the guy, sometimes. To him, we are not dating. We have gone out a couple times for meals, and we have many common interests in which we share and go out and do.
I guess it’s just the semantics, or formality of it all.
@ pamster369: Outward signs are those of body language, such as ‘mirroring’ (copying) my posture or if I change my sitting position, so does he, EXACTLY. There has also been the ‘grooming’ thing, ie, smoothing of hair, running his fingers through his hair, plus all those little signs of interest which happen in the early stages of ‘getting to know you’ period. He’s also called me a cute nickname. Other little things have occurred too, but this is enough to suffice what I’ve termed “Outward signs.” Since I took a couple day hiatus from seeing him, things have steadily, albeit slowly, been progressing. I know he had been hurt deeply by a woman, recent enough to hold him back.
