Confusing thing about a guy watch

    Not sure what I'm trying to achieve by posting this, and it's really embarassing but anyway, I'd just like to get some insight.

    I can't figure out if a guy likes me, he behaves in such a contradictory way. Apparently he does, but he doesn't do anything about it. I met him some while ago at a party, and since then whenever I run into him, or when we randomely meet on nights out he's always talking to me and generally being flirty, calling me pretty, kissed me on some occasion (no alcohol involved, weirdly enough). I don't always know how to react to be honest, sometimes I can handle it, other times I think I'm probably being awkward (I sort of freeze I guess- I cringe when I think back). He's also telling me that we should hang out more often and that I should let him know if I want to go out.

    However, he doesn't do anything to make that happen, I texted him once about organising a night out with other people and he declined because he'd supposedly promised to be somewhere else at that time. It was kind of short notice so it might have been genuine, but still doesn't seem very encouraging. I haven't seen him in a while and I was kind of thinking about hanging out with some common friends and accidentally running into him, but I don't want to be a creep.
    Uhm... Any ideas what's going on with him and whether I should just forget about him ?

    Well you have only tried once and it does seem like he was generally doing a lot more work to show you he's interested so why don't you try ask him out again but give him more time, maybe a text saying if he's free next week or something ..

    Maybe the reason he declined was because he wants a situation with just you and him. By the sounds of things he's tried to initiate something, but sort of done it in a way that he can avoid rejection.

    Why not suggest to him that there's xyz on at the cinema and you would like to see it and then ask him if he wants to take you (that way he thinks he is kinda in control, us guys we like to think our ideas are our own)

    Yeah, it annoys me that he's being such a girl about it, he expects me to ask him out, but doesn't seem bothered to do anything himself. I don't necessarily mind innitiating things seeing as I probably like him more than he does (if at all), but for the same reason I don't want to get rejected again either. And most importantly I don't want to scare him by being too persistent.

    Don't be a hypocrite, you're doing the exact same thing! Just ask him out, not a meet up with other people.

    wait so he's kissed you while sober, and asked you to tell him if you want to hang out, and you don't know if he likes you :lolwut:

    just agree to go out with him, text him arranging lunch or something, and job's a good'un
