    From a guys perspective, what is the difference between "just friends" and a sort of crush?
    If a guy goes from talking to you 24/7, telling you some personal stuff and complimenting you to virtually nothing (still being polite and nice but nothing more), what could this mean?

    I'm really not good at this sort of stuff...
    Any help appreciated

    Haha I know exactly what you mean hun, and they have the cheek to say that us girls are confusing :')

    I had that all through my teens, it gets easier as guys mature! You'll be fine, its good to just chat to guys and stuff but don't worry about that too much its not worth it! Just enjoy time with your girlfriends and boys will come along later at a much better time haha xx

    Some boys go through phases of 'attraction'. Probably means hes not into you as much now as before, but its good hes still nice to you as he still must like you. Dont rush into things and like above as things mature it will get better.

    Im a boy, and when i was younger i was kinda like that. I apologize on behalf of all young stupid boys

    People pay more attention to others when they're crushing on them. If the person they're crushing on becomes unavailable for whatever reason, there's a decline in attention.

    That's not confusing behaviour, it's basic human behaviour; people pay attention to things that they want. If they can't have it, they start looking for what they can have instead of dwelling on what they can't (well, most do anyway).

    Seems kind of immoral to use language that compares humans to possessions, but the analogy fits so whatever.
