    Ok, here's the deal. I met someone about 7 weeks ago, and we hit it off pretty well. We have a lot in common, like the same activities, etc etc... we talk every day, see each other once or twice a week... he's met some of my friends, I've met some of his.

    But I'm confused.... and afraid to ask. How do I know if we're... in a relationship? Like I said, I'm afraid to just ask. I don't want things to be awkward, and I don't want to lose him as a friend because I really like him.

    I like being around him, talking to him. Look forward to it, in fact. But how do I know if he just wants to be friends?:confused:

    are you happy being around each other? isn't that enough? I don't think you need a definition of what you are


    also, update?

    More than happy.

    Not really. He's coming to my friends par-tay on Saturday. We have to behave though, my friends don't know about me/him :down:

    skreid, honesty is the best policy, ask him straight away but don't make a huge deal out of it...next time you are having a good convo just ask him how does he feel about you two, let him know you are cool with it and move on...

    my advice to you is to simply continue enjoying the time you spend with him.

    Sorry for the lack of update, I've had a busy week :hsd:

    Anyway...he said no :wtc: sort of. He doesn't want to go any further than good friends "for now," mostly because of our age (sorry, forgot to mention I'm 19 and he's 27), just wants to keep developing our friendship and see how we're doing later on down the road.

    i have found that when trying to date older guys it gets really difficult
    im 24 now, but when i was 19 - 21 i tried dating a couple older guys, one was 30 and the other was 40 something (but looked amazing)
    its almost like they have been burned so many times by younger guys that they are scared to try again
    I had one guy tell my friend (the matchmaker) that he wasnt interested because i seemed like a mommas boy
    my mom had called during dinner and i told her i love her and i would have to call her back later
    I was living on my own with a great job, graduated college with a 4.0 and own my own moving company
    but he didnt even bother to get to know any of that, all he seen was my age and i was checked off as not a possibility
    it almost made me want to lie about my age and tell them i was 28 or something :\
    but i ended up with a younger guy lol hes about to be 22 but one of the most mature guys i have ever dated, so you never know how things will work out
