Do most guy friends behave this way?

Question - (27 March 2017) 4 Answers - (Newest, 5 April 2017)
A female United States age 26-29, anonymous writes:

So for a few weeks I've had a crush on this guy that I see periodically at a social dance event. I have known him but not well for almost a year, but have recently started getting closer to him. We started getting closer once a previous relationship with someone else ended. He's very respectful and chivalrous but also flirty. Every time we dance he always hugs me tightly, and sometimes he will kiss my hand. Even when we aren't dancing together, he finds a reason to hug me multiple times per night. Well the last time we were together we went as a group out somewhere. He sat next to me and put his head on my shoulder, and invited me to play with his hair. Then in the same conversation he sat up and massaged part of my hand. He also showed me a cute picture of his pet. I know I can't know completely for sure if this guy likes me without asking him; however my question is do most guy friends do these kinds of things? I should add that he is a very playful fun person, and is kind to everyone. Although sometimes he goes quiet when I'm around.

A female reader, anonymous, writes (30 March 2017):

Yes, he definitely likes you. If a guy friend doesn't like you, chances are he wouldn't lead you on at all so you wouldn't be confused about any possible relationship. If he didn't like you he wouldn't publicly show his preference for you in this way. If you like him back, give him clues that you do. Subtle clues, so if it turns out he doesn't like you you don't have to be embarrassed. But with a situation like this, I think his having a crush on you is pretty definite. Good luck and I hope you find happiness!

Honeypie agony auntI think he likes you. The reason he goes quiet might be because you aren't encouraging him more (he is as unsure as you are).

So start talking to him. See where it takes you.

malvern agony auntOh yes he likes you ! He's waiting for a response from you, a bit of encouragement. You need to let him know that you are interested and it doesn't need to be verbal. Just squeeze his hand, hug him back when he hugs you or give him some other indication you like him. Guys lack confidence in themselves and they don't want to assume you fancy them and then be let down. When I was young I missed a lot of opportunities by not reading these signals they send out. Go for it and encourage him if you want to get to know him better !
