I thought he knew me

Any advice? I'm head over heels for this guy and he claims to like me as well. I've told nearly everything about myself, and he likewise. I thought he knew me, but he just proved that he obviously doesn't. What can I do?

Fact is, he might just have his mind on a lot of things. If you're worried that he doesn't like you, I'm sure that's not the case. As long as he's being loyal and a good guy, I assume everything is alright.

Forgive me but what do you mean by "I thought he knew me"? the "knew me" part is throwing me off. Not to mention the fact that I am a guy, and yalls language/rules does get complicated lol.

lol, yeah...it does :P The "knew me" part is the fact that he doesn't seem to understand me anymore. Like, when my depression is especially bad. I thought he knew me well enough to know and care, but I guess not. :(

So I'm not exactly sure what the problem is. Is he just not asking you out? Or did he do something to make you think he doesn't care about you? Because it sounds like you've become really close with this guy, sharing intimate details about your personal trials and tribulations, and while he has made it clear that he likes you, he doesn't seem to care enough to take the next step. If that is the case, then don't worry. Our brains work differently than those of men, and sometimes they just don't catch on to things we find to be so blatant. He doesn't mean to be insensitive or ignorant, he just doesn't think the way we do. Just give it a little time and don't bog him down with emotional baggage. If you're waiting to pick up the pace on your relationship, it sounds like you should take the reigns because he's a little timid.

Thanks:) Yeah, it's just that he hasnt caught on to the fact that I'd take a bullet for him, and the fact that I'm literally in love with him. Thanks for the advice!

For the record and this goes with everyone here, if you have a serious condition make sure significant other knows about it. All kinds of hell have been born out of lovers not knowing their significant other suffers from depression or is bipolar



-sincerely the guy who is playing therapist for the ignorant
