If your best friend is telling you how great these other women are and is bragging about his sexual prowess or the great dates he takes them on he might very well be trying to make you jealous of his activities. However, if he is constantly complaining about them or creating drama around his dating adventures, he might be using you as a therapist and men who are relying on you as a mentor see you more as a sister or mother figure rather than as a romantic companion. The male who sees you as a potential mate will usually ask you out. There is a slight chance, like you, that he fears losing the friendship if the union becomes sexual and does not work out, but it is more likely that he is not interested in you if he has not made a move to ask you out like he as other girls.

Also, knowing that you have feelings for him may not necessarily prevent him from seeing other women if he does not share the feelings of sexual attraction. He may even know you are in love with him now and be refusing to act on it because he is not interested. If you decide to tell him that you have feelings for him be ready for anything as this is a situation that could go either way.

If he is trying to make you jealous by seeing other women then this seems like a lot of trouble to go to rather than just telling you upfront that he has feelings for you. For the most part, men are not shy and do deliberately ask women out when they are interested in them and do not bother playing emotional games with others intended to make them jealous.

First of all, you need to find the reason that your parents prohibit you from seeing him. Maybe they do really know something about the person, but they are afraid to tell you. Most commonly, parents will be just overprotective and stringent, notwithstanding your age. If that is the case, consider that a common misfortune unites people stronger than ever. This can be regarded by both of you as a chance to prove that your relationship conquers all. Find time after work or studying to meet him. Devote your mornings to him. Start going to the library or gymnasium together. Find a hobby that allows you to stay outdoors and see him. Contrive to do everything not to allow him to think that you do not wish to see him.

My best guy friend sometimes acts really weird. He's very moody. Our other guy best friend teases him regarding me and tell him that he should tell or admit something to me. He keeps on denying that he will not tell anything. When we're together, me, our other best friend, and him, (by the way my guy best friend who's I don't know if he's really in love with me is Rocky) our other best friend told me that they really talked about me and Rocky wants to say something but Rocky do not tell what is it. Actually, I admit to you that I love my best friend not only as best friends but more than that, but I don't want to enter in a relationship now. I have this "M.U." with other guy. Rocky always asks me if I answer those guys who want to court me. I told him that "no". Rocky knew that I love him before, but now I don't think so, 'because I've got linked to other guy w/c was my 2ND M.You. That time he started to like other girls and admitting that he likes that girl, he told me that he likes that girl. I got confused because our other guy best friend told me that Rocky will tell something to me but Rocky do not tell it to me. I really don't want to assume but I WANT TO KNOW if does it really mean, thanks for the answer?

How do I know if my best friend of 16 years is into me? What do I do?

My best friend and I have grown up together and have always been great friends. We have lived across the street from each other for 16 years now, but this year he went off to college. When he came back for breaks, he started acting a lot different. For example, he started touching me more and hugging me and just spending a lot more time with me when we were in groups of people, even my sister thought it was weird. He's also started acting more protective over me when it comes to me talking to other guys. He took me skiing the other day and he was really patient and nice, which is very rare, maybe it was because he saw how nervous I was, which is very rare for me. For the longest time, all of my friends and some of my family have been saying that there's chemistry between us and we're going to get married one day. People are always making insinuations about us being together and liking each other. We even have matching tattoos now and he got me this beautiful necklace as a gift for Christmas that I know he must've put a lot of thought and money into. However, he says that he has a girl he is talking to back at school, but I'm still not really sure how he feels. I don't know if I should confront him about it or if I should let it go. To be honest, I don't even know how I feel about it, the whole thing is very confusing. I think it shows a really long term situation and more subtle hints from the boy. I have tried: I've tried to talk to my friends about it, but they really don't know anything about it. I've also tried to talk to my sister, who knows him very well. She keeps telling me she will talk to him, but she falls through every time. I think it was caused by: I think it was caused by his leaving for college. I believe he may have began to realize his "feelings" once he left and we weren't able to see each other all of the time.
