    Should I give up on him?

    I’m a university student, and two years ago I came out of an abusive relationship. It took me a long time to get better, but now I’m ready to start dating again.
    I have a crush on a guy. He’s funny, kind and we talk all the time, but it’s always online/via text. He goes out of his way to help me and I don’t even have to ask him. We don’t see each other much but when we do I always catch him looking at me and he’s pretty flirty. For a while I thought he liked me back, but now every time I ask him if he wants to go and do something he turns me down or changes the subject.
    I really like him, but I don’t want to get hurt again. It seems like something’s holding him back, and now I’m starting to wonder if I should just give up on him altogether. I don’t want to get into another situation where I’ll get hurt, but I can’t remember the last time I felt this strongly about someone and I don’t want to give up because I’m afraid it might go wrong.

    He might be lacking confidence. Even if you show you’re interested he may be doubting himself. It may be different for a girl, but I did that many times..I would lead guys on, they would ask me out but I was so self conscious I rejected them. Maybe he has hesitations with relationships from past experiences like you do. Maybe open up and discuss your dating history? He may feel more comfortable after that. I would say don’t let go of him if you like him so much, but if it gets to a point where his indecisiveness is playing with your emotions you may have to reconsider. You have to think about what makes YOU happy first, and while he makes you happy now if he continues this it’ll eventually upset you.
