    Advice?

    I just had a talk with a girl that I’ve been with for a month. Things were going well but she said that she wants to be just friends, I told her she was giving me mixed signals and I know that there is something between us, she reluctantly agreed. She then said she doesn’t want to catch feelings but she still wants to be affectionate.

    What do I do?

    “I just want to be friends” means “I don’t want to have your babies”

    It means you did not present yourself well and she lost attraction to you. You didn’t give any details, but in most cases it is because the guy failed to present himself as centered, emotionally strong, confident, and masculine.

    Go to YouTube and find the channel called Coach Corey Wayne (I am not him, nor do I represent him). Search within the channel for the key words Friend Zone. There are hours worth of video material on the subject. He is one of the best out there at explaining the Friend Zone and why it happens.

    I don’t think theres anything you can do about that, gotta find someone else and do better.

    “…she said that she wants to be just friends.” which translates into “I don’t see (you) as being {the one}!”

    “She then said she doesn’t want to catch feelings but she still wants to be affectionate.”
    Sound like she might be open to a “friends with benefits” arrangement.

    However if you want something serious from her you probably should just avoid it altogether because you’re likely to be the one who gets hurt.
    Being “affectionate” with a “friend” only works if that’s what (both people) want out of it. Clearly she wants to keep her “options” open.

    Like the others stated, you’re headed straight to the FWB zone. One thing you can do is change the course of your mind and play along with it.

    You didn’t impress her and she thinks she can find someone better but your presence is convenient for her in the meantime.
    You either dump her or play hard to get few months and see how it evolves.
