The search terms I find in this blog's stat counter reveal a lot, especially after a long weekend. Here are this morning's big four:
-How to tell if he likes me
-How to tell if he wants to be exclusive
-How to tell if he wants relationship
To shed light on the first three, it's never your job to figure out if a man likes you or what his motives are. It's his job to communicate his feelings, and if he doesn't, keep moving until he does. (And if he doesn't, you won't have wasted time on him.)
As for being stood up, well, please believe me when I suggest that a guy's not showing has nothing (really; nothing) to do with you and everything to do with him. Does this make it any less disappointing?
Of course not.
But a guy who's too cowardly or self-involved or forgetful or drunk to show up for a date (or to pick up the phone and give you the courtesy of canceling it) makes lousy boyfriend material.
Be thankful he let you know it before you got involved with him.
