this guy and I have been interested in each other for like... 3 years now. Something always seems to be in the way. He's been dating this girl for the past year now and I was trying to move on but we've been talking lately and they've been having problems and I think they're going to break up. He also keeps flirting from like, the unserious stuff to him admitting he still had feelings for me. I don't want to get in between him and his girlfriend,but I also still really like him and I don't know from Anonymous
I can’t speak for this person because I don’t know them, or their true intentions.
Sometimes…(not every time) when someone is dealing with a lot of negativity in their current relationship..in can weigh on their self esteem, or they begin to feel alone…and they try to get some positive feeling or intimacy somewhere else in order to fill a void, or distract themselves from that bad relationship. They might even start to feel like they ACTUALLY like this secondary source of attention better because at that moment, it IS better! But once the loneliness is gone, the self esteem is back, and they’re back to their old self…they no longer need that “in-case of emergency, please use me” source of positive attention. So that second person is just kinda thrown to the side wondering, “wtf just happened.”
And then sometimes, it takes a bad relationship to make you realize that you had someone amazing there all along. Maybe they got to see a different side of you that is something they want to be around more often. And the secondary source of attention becomes the one and only source of attention! =) <3 And if you pay attention to the signs, you will know within time which one you are.
