I had a crush on someone last semester. I was completely single then and available. The person seemed attracted to me but he didn't seem to try very hard. The first day we spoke he would walk past me and turn around and walk backwards and say hi to me each time he walked by (they were about 5 minutes apart). I caught him walking past me and staring at me when I was talking to people. It was hard to talk to him though. He seemed rigid and hard to connect with. But he would approach me and talk about school work. I thought he was sending mixed signals so I asked his friend if he liked me. His friend told me the guy was into someone else, but I later found out the friend liked me, so I don't know how trustworthy his words are.

During the winter break I got back with someone I was seeing from my home town. He seems unable to seriously commit but we talk every day. He paid for half of my plane ticket for me to come home during Spring break.

Out of nowhere the guy from school asked me to have coffee. Then he asked me to have dinner (that hasn't happened). He's been texting me with smiley faces after almost every text. 2 years ago I would probably be smitten but I've played that game too often to know better. Sad to say, I'm just jaded and skeptical. I'm just wondering if it didn't work out with whoever it was and now he's trying me because I seem to be the nice girl that everyone turns to as a last resort. Despite those negative thoughts, I know there is attraction there. I just don't really know how to react.

Your mad because you weren't the first choice? Not judging, it just seems pertinent.

So if somehow you weren't jaded about him waiting so long then you would be as excited as him? Why don't you just bring that up to him and see if he can unjade you. You don't have anything to lose, you're not really invested yet.

I say go for it. It sounds like he was finally able to muster up the courage to approach you, and it's not like you were sitting at home like a sad wallflower. He could also be skeptical that you are only giving him a try because your earlier relationships did not work out. Just be open-minded and see what happens.

I think that's probably it. Something has definitely changed big time. He's been aggressively flirting with me. I've never had a guy wink at me from across the room before. I actually thought it was pretty cheesy lol. Or he could be a player.
