Just Friends?

Published on February 22, 2014 by stars1029

I am best friends with a guy, to the point that we spend most of our time together and trust each other more than anyone. We have talked about dating a few times before, but due to his past relationship issues, decided to wait and see how things went. A few months ago, we drunkenly hooked up one night, talked about dating again, and besides a few references to that night here and there, haven't discussed dating since. Lately, however, he's been making really sexual comments and been extra touchy, but nothing about a relationship. Have I missed my chance with him? Where do I go from here?

ANSWERS

In my opinion, the only way to know is to ask. It takes guts to be that upfront. But the benefit is that if he isn't interested in a relationship, you get that out on the table. And if he is, then you get to decide if you want to give it a shot or not.

I hear a more prominent concern here. You have a difficult time talking openly in your relationship. You might explore some ways to feel safer in the relationship so you can talk openly about the options you two have.
