    I've been with my boyfriend for 8 months now. I asked him the other day whether he could tell that I liked him before we got together. He said that I was as subtle as a sledgehammer.

    At first I thought nothing of it but I've been worrying about it recently.

    If I like somebody, I will tell them. I asked out 2 of my 4 boyfriends, this one included. I'm confident going after somebody that I like, so I made no show of playing games or hiding my feelings with my boyfriend.

    Do you think he meant it in a negative way? I can't see a sledgehammer being sexy.

    "2 of your 4 boyfriends"? I thought it's only the one you are currently in a relationship with that you can call a boyfriend, the others are just "male friends". If your other male friends are expressing romantic interest in you, then welcome to Love Triangle Country, in which any decision you make regarding your love life can hurt any of those involved...

    Don't worry about it, he was just being direct. That isn't negative at all, and it sounds like you've landed yourself an unusually perceptive guy.

    Quite the opposite. I love people who are direct and don't play mind games.

    I guess I'll just take it as fact (I wasn't being subtle at all) and accept that it's either a positive, or it wasn't enough to put him off me
