Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man Quotes by Steve Harvey
If He Says He Can’t Be in a Relationship, Don’t Try to Change His Mind
There is this one guy i have been talking to for a while now. He talks to me daily and wants to hang out with me. He said regardless of whether i want to do sexual things or not, he still wants to see me. I do like him as a person, and enjoy his company, but i am not sure if i am wasting my time seeing him? Is it possible a guy could change their mind?
I started seeing a close friend after we made out one night. I had reservations because he was divorced a year and a half ago with 2 kids. He would drive hours to see the kids every weekend so that means weekends are off limits for us. Things quickly escalated from there in a span of 2 months. We started going on dates at least twice a week. We text all day, late night talks, deep intimate conversations — the works. Things were so easy because we have so much in common and we were friends first.

One of our beautiful readers, who has chosen to remain anonymous, was in a friends with benefits situation and is wondering if he will ever come around and want a committed relationship with her. Last year I moved into University halls, and basically fell almost instantly in love with one of my flatmates. He was in a long-term relationship at the time, but we got on really well and hung out a lot. A few months into the term he separated from his girlfriend, and me and him got even closer and after a few months ended up becoming friends with benefits for about 4 months, however we basically acted like a couple, then all of a sudden he stopped things, saying he wasn't over his last relationship. I was devastated and tried everything to get over him , but I don't think I ever stopped loving him. We had arranged to live together with friends in 2nd year so cutting him out of my life completely was not an option however contact was very limited.
More often than not, dating opens women up to a world of confusion that too often ends in hurt. At some point or another, we have to get some clarification as to what exactly is going on here or risk getting stuck in the ambiguous friend zone. The first time, I was crushed but continued with the undefined relationship. Time eventually muddled us together, and we did become some sort of constant dating entity—but a catastrophic one. He may still want to see what his options are, or he wants to focus on his career. He may also want to have life experiences or work on himself first before he gets into a serious relationship.
We started casually hanging out. I thought he just needed to realize I was the right girl. I truly believed that we were right for each other, so I just kept trying. I thought he was just afraid of commitment. I thought it was a fear that every man had to get the hell over at some point in his life and I thought I would be that point for him.
