What I am getting – through his actions and emotions – is that he does indeed love me, but I am not pushing him to formally acknowledge it yet.
The problem for me is this: in the past, he has fallen head over heels in love and gotten deep into relationships very quickly.
You need to take an honest look at your romantic motivations and the reasons for your parents' objections. If you are motivated by rebellion the simplest and right thing to do is end the relationship.This is a very different situation for me, since the typical sign that someone is really into me is reflected in his wanting to call me / be with me fairly often.He wants to see me each weekend, but unless I get upset about his lack of attention during the week, the time between Monday and Thursday just doesn’t seem to be a real priority for him where I’m concerned.Is there a good time frame to go by not only for him to acknowledge his feelings, but for me to make a decision about whether I should stick around or not? Dear Jennifer, I usually don’t run letters this long, especially when I’ve written at least seven articles in the past year that cover this specific topic (including What to Do When the Guy You’re Seeing Will Not Commit).
Still, your letter was well-constructed, self aware, and worthy of response…. Really, it’s on par with answering “I’m a perfectionist” to the “what’s your biggest flaw” question in a job interview. So get it straight: this darling man of integrity is just trying to protect you from getting hurt because he’s made some mistakes before. Believe it or not, I’d still try to give him the benefit of the doubt, since I’ve been wrong before.You’re expecting things to change, but he doesn’t want them to change. If I was set on someone as girlfriend material I would certainly disable my online personal ads.
