So there was this guy who briefly became a good friend, we lived down the street and we hung out a solid amount & he invited me to do all the things. I became comfortable around him even though, at the time, I was avoiding spending time with men, especially alone; but I broke the rules for him because he was very respectable and he made me feel safe & valued. I went from the ‘hell no, never.’ perspective to entertaining the idea of us being more than friends for 20 days. I think we were both pretty flirty during those days, but I changed my mind back to ‘hell no’ fairly quick. Our relationship never changed, but we both got busy & moved & haven’t seen each other much lately. In that time he’s become much less considerate, flaky and distant when we do see each other. Now, we talk when we need something from the other. It’s been 2 months since I thought about it, and he’s just now asking if we need to DTR, indirectly.
I’m sure that the things that I liked about him are still a part of him, but I haven’t seen them in a long while. I hate speculation, but maybe he got creeped out when he thought I liked him. I did like him, for about 2.5 weeks, but the rest of the time he’s always just been a friend.
