Question - (30 November 2007) 2 Answers - (Newest, 1 December 2007)
A female United Kingdom age 30-35, *en17 writes:

Hey all,

I really need some advice, I'm not sure what to do. I have known this guy for a few years now, but about 12 months ago he text me and asked me out. He is about 23 years older than me. I told him I wasnt interested, but I was still prepared to be friends with him. He agreed to this. He had been going through some tough times and I gave him my support. He still texts me at least every month for a chat etc, and I thought he had accepted being just friends. But when I bumped into him the other week, he acted really strangely. He kept walking past me and his friends obviously knew who I was as they all smiled at me. He also seemed to be really nervous which is really unusual behaviour for this particular guy.

I bumped into him again recently, and he said Hi, but things are just so awkward. I feel bad if I dont speak to him, but then if I do does it look like im interested?

His text messages have been increasing recently too and the number of kisses at the end have started to increase. I just would have thought by now he would have moved on to someone else.

Does anyone have any ideas what I should do or how to act when he is around? Or why this guy is acting like he is?

this looks like a crush period and he is trying to get your attention. yet, if u still want him as a friend, you should say that to him directly and boldly. also, when he is around, try to mention his ' hi friend ' or something similar so that he and his friends too get the message.
