How do I know whether my guy best friend is trying to make me jealous when he is talking about other girls or whether he genuinely likes them?

I'm in love with my guy best friend and I think he doesn't know this.

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.

How can I tell if she really likes me? I'm still confused, there are times she makes me feel unimportant and there are times she makes me feel like I'm really special?

About my girl, she's my best friend

When you are left feeling unimportant it is because you are her best friend and she knows you will always be there. If you take out the gender portion of this situation, think about how you sometimes do not speak to one of your male friends for a few days. It is not on purpose but rather you know they will pick up the phone when you call. If you want something more from your best friend, you should be honest with her. She does like you or you would not be hanging out with her but you will never know it this can turn from friendship to relationship until you say something to her.

What will I do to keep my relationship with my Guy best friend strong and closer than before?

I have this guy best friend and literally, we spend time together and do everything together, now my parents didn't want to see us together. They want me to keep my distance from him. But I can't do that!

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 tells 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 does 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 another guy. Rocky always asks me if I answer those guys who want to court me. I told him that "no". Rocky knew that I loved 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 does 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?

What you should determine is why you are so eager to know if Rocky has feelings for you when you are in a mutual understanding with another guy. If you really do like Rocky and want a relationship with him, then end your understanding with the other guy. After a few weeks, let Rocky know that you did this because you are actually in love with him. There is no point to going back and forth with the teasing anymore. Be honest with him before it is too late. If you keep guessing and waiting he may find someone else because he gave up on waiting for you to say something. He is not telling you he has feelings because he is afraid of your reaction. He is also respecting the fact that you are in another relationship.

I keep thinking about all that he did, and when he doesn't talk to me I cry. I have tried: Nothing. I think it was caused by: I don't know

Psychologically, we always want what we can't have. This is why you do not have a romantic interest in your best friend. The only thing you could respectfully do now is the wait to see where the new relationship goes. If it hurts, too much to speak with him you have two options:

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  • Ask him to not speak about her with you.
  • Tell him of your romantic feelings.

Before you tell him of how you feel, make sure that you actually do want to be in a relationship with him. Do not get stuck dating him and feeling that you must continue when you realize it was a mistake. This happens often because once again people are not interested in another until they are no longer available.

What does it mean if your boy best friend makes a status about you?

Like it said I want her and only her.

It is quite obvious, He wants to date you and only you. Respond back to him to tell him if you are interested or want to just stay friends. Do not leave him hanging as he made a public declaration about you.

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 begun to realize his "feelings" once he left and we weren't able to see each other all of the time.

The next time he visits, tell him that you think you may want to explore being in a more romantic relationship with him. If you wait this out, he probably will begin dating someone else. You have had a strong friendship for 16 years. By now, you should know how you feel about him. Since this also has been a long friendship, you should not lose his friendship by being honest about your feelings. Perhaps suggest that you try to date during his summer break. This will give you a few months to be together and not in a long distance relationship.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Don't way for your sister or friend to speak with him. It shows a level of immaturity if you can't speak with him on your own about your feelings. Being upfront and honest will end the pull and tug you are feeling from him. Either you carry on with your friendship or start dating.

How do I face my best friend next time, we kissed once and it wasn't intentional?

I love my best friend so much, we accidentally kissed the last time we met. Now I am shy, just shy to look at him in the face because I love him so much. I have tried: None. I think it was caused by: I love him and I think he does too

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Obviously, the kissing episode changed the dynamic of your friendship. Be upfront and ask him what direction he would like to go in terms of a friendship or relationship with you. Sometimes a kiss happens because two people get caught up in a moment but once that passes, they realize that it was a mistake. You won't know until you bypass the shyness and ask him if he would like something more with you.

My boy best friend ever since I met him like 6 months ago

My boy best friend, I have really known him for like half a year and we have grown so close its like crazy. We have the exact same interest and we always jinx each other even if it doesn't make any sense. People always mistake us for a couple saying couple goals and even our parents think we are dating. We always make those flirty jokes with each other and keep on going even though we both know we our jokes can go far haha and he always looks out for me. He always makes me laugh and the other way around and also considers me as his main best-friend. I've fallen for him but I don't know whether he likes me or not because we always hang out after school almost every day we always sit next to each other in class and the whole school practically thinks we are dating. We spent Christmas together and had a lot of "married couple fights" and he knows me better than anyone even myself he always knows how to make me smile when I'm feeling down and when I'm with him I also bring up his real laugh which he doesn't show often. In his phone, I'm his queen... my name and in mine, he is my king ... his name. He always wants to pay when we go eat somewhere and always stands up for me when someone else says something but I guess that is what best friends do. We have things crazy friendship and I don't know if he likes me back? We are both seniors in high school and I have just known him this school year. We practically became best friends ever since we met. We just had that click ya know and he always compares us to yin and yang. I have tried: I tried like being more close to him and he kind of did too. It was a joke and joined in and I wanted to tell him many times and when I did he said he's not mad or anything like I said I thought he would and was mad that I didn't tell him but I played it off and said that it was a while ago. I think it was caused by: I think just us hanging out more and his personality and the way he is the only one who can really make me laugh and has seen all my embarrassing moments

Don't force a change right now. It seems you both are flowing into a relationship organically. Just keep going forward with him as you have been. The time to interject would be if you think he is about to date someone else. You should leave hints to let him know you are interested in more. Just be careful to not overwhelm him. Take your time and see where this goes between you both.
