    So is this guy stringing me along?

    I’ve been talking to this guy for about 1.5 months. We’ve gone on several dates initially and they were great. Due to recent events, it has become harder and harder to meet up due to change in circumstances: He now lives an hour away, started a new job, looking for an apartment.

    He continues to keep in contact with me on a daily basis (more so checking in on me as opposed to having in depth conversation). He asks about specific things going on in my life, he comments on things I snapchat him, he shares stuff that he does throughout the day.

    It may seem obvious but I’m only asking because you always hear people say, “if they want to date you, they will make it happen”. At the same time I would t want to date someone in his current circumstance. He has expressed interest in seeing me haven’t done anything. Would he be trying to get his life together before perusing me again? Or just stringing me along and using it as an excuse?

    It’s tough to tell honestly. It’s true, if he wants to date you he’ll find a way to make it happen. He could be conflicted about how he wants to approach this, so he’s keeping in touch just in case he does want to get into a relationship, but keeping enough distance that he can back out

    Best of luck to you

    What are you snap chatting him? If they aren’t flirting then you are confusing him. Also if he doesn’t know anyone where new job is he could just be lonely and you are keeping him company.

    When a man tells you he thinks you’re flirty and fresh. Is this something he likes in me?
    Do men like a little of that and want to see it more or less. I’m may through out a flirt here and there, but not as a rule. I don’t see myself as “fresh”. Then again what is fresh to him. I may need to know that. He is the only one receiving any flirts or freshness on my part.
