There is nothing wrong with you two having a great friendship and having it just be that (with or without benefits).
On the other hand, if his recent change in behavior is because he wants to date you, or wants the relationship to become something more than it is, I , he will let you know.
I’ve chosen to be proactive and make every attempt to prevent those crushed feelings from being my own.
And even on the flipside, I don’t want to be that girl that makes a man despise all women because I’ve played tic-tac-toe with his emotions.
Most cases where a new relationship starts up, a friendship changes (for better or worse), or a friendship turns into a relationship, are often preceded by some sort of life change.
My guess is that one or both of you are at some kind of crossroad in your lives.
It sounds nice – so I mean, continuing to have him in your life doesn’t sound like a bad idea.
When we’re together, it’s like we’re “dating” (he acts all boyfriendy), but other than that, we’re just friends.
