So i get a text from this guy saying...
hey, how are you, would you like to go to the cinema tomorrow evening?

I then check with my group of friends whether its a group thing, and they said ye they were asked to, but for tonight rather than 2moro.

I replied to the guy i couldnt, as its our leavers ball tomorrow night and he said ah ok i thought it may have been...he didnt mention that he actualy meant tonight :s

so was he asking just me or perhaps it was just a mix up

perhaps im reading into it way too much

He was asking you, but was afraid of the rejection so had a back up plan to pretend it was a mix up in case you said "nope, I don't want to date you". If you're interested text him in a couple of days saying "wondered if you wanted to catch that movie..."

A guy would go to that amount of trouble, we're often just as shy/self-conscious/scared of rejection as girls.

My payment comes in the form of never getting anywhere with girls because I fall into the friend zone far too easily. It's a selfless work, but someone has to do it!

Unfortunately, I share that pain. I try and try, but it goes in the wrong direction (towards 'friendship') and then when I make a move it's "we're just friends, right?". :sigh:

OP, if you're ever feeling charitable and wish to donate a meagre £3.50p/m to a member on TSR, this is your guy right here.

And, yes, OP, he probably was trying to ask you out. I'd resort to those methods were I in his situation.

Too many girls like bad guys, I think I'm going to buy a leather jacket and get a piercing, that's what bad guys do, right?

He was trying to ask you out, but was scared of rejection. I got a text like this myself and the guy was so relieved when i said yes.

Eurgh, please don't. Us nice guys have a reputation to uphold! Same problem entirely...the moment they start seeing you as a confidante you know you're in trouble...

Really weird thing is, girls do often like me...but they're never ever my type, and the girls that I do like never fall for me. Oh, and the most important girl in my life chose to wait until a year after I'd moved country to tell me how she felt about me. How depressing :-)

Back to the OP, though...yeah. Probably. If you like him, tell him :-)
All these friend zone stories can be quite depressing.

But it’s not as if a friend can never lead to anything more, right? But anyway, take comfort I knowing friends are great. :- )

To the OP, I’d assume that yes indeed he does like you. I’d take trusty Rscully’s advice and text him in a few days if you are interested.
