So I’m 18 and so is this guy. I work with him and he asked for my number. We’ve been texting/talking for about 5 days now. He always asks sexual joking questions and always texts me 1st. I was thinking he was a player but he’ll also talk to me about personal stuff. And when I did tell him to go talk to an airhead (blank) girl instead, he was like nahhh. So I don’t get him. What does he want? Please and thank you!
Thanks for writing.
What does he want? He wants you. It’s pretty clear.
We realize this young man is 18, but that still doesn’t excuse his behavior. Since when can’t a guy pick up the phone and actually call- NOT text-and be direct??!!
“Hey Blake. Would you like to go out to dinner?”
“Hey Blake. I’d like to take you out.”
Guys have fallen into this bad habit of going for a sure thing. They nibble and they prod, hoping to get the answer they need before they take the plunge. Guys of all ages do this. But there is no such thing as a sure thing. Life is risky, and this guy needs to step up to the plate and take a real swing.
So to answer your question, yes he likes you, but if he continues this game playing, because it surely is just that, do you really want to deal?
Good luck. And keep us posted.
