i am in a situation where i don't know what i should do. here's the story...i met someone lately and i never expected to be friends with him. later on, he was being really friendly. you know, he sends text messages saying "good morning" & "goodnight" and sometimes, he even calls me. i can't deny to myself that i really like him already. i'm even falling for him already. i guess he likes me too. but the problem is, i don't know what he really wants from me. does he just want to be friends or what?... okay, my friends already told me that i'm always in a rush to know things. well, yeah, i am. i just want clarity, you know. i guess we both know what we really feel towards each other. but sometimes, i think that maybe he wants to know if he has a chance... i don't know what he wants!

Perhaps he is being courteous. Perhaps he is also trying to win your favours. Perhaps he is sincere in wanting to be friends with you but he is shy or afraid of being rejected. You wont know the answers until you make a friend out of him. Since you have good impression of him, and you think he too likewise, maybe you can make the first move and invite him out for tea. Why not be friends first before going further. I would not say it is love yet, nor is it love at first sight. Ask and you will know. Keep quiet and you stand to lose.

Well, I would actually say confess my feelings but then I read the whole story.. I think it's best if you wait for awhile, don't rush into things.. Just enjoy his company and try to find out his motives, and try to open your situation to him but do it in a subtle way that it wouldn't scare him.. Just enjoy his accompany first and see how things work after..

I think Filipinos aren't ready for the "aggressive" types yet. All you have to do now is, really, sit back and wait. Enjoy the attention. The guy just probably needs more time to figure out how he can confess his feelings for you. Besides, it's always good to not jump into conclusions just yet. At least you and your feelings are protected.

Just to tell him how your feeling is.If you don't do that,you will never know how he thinks and what he wants.And you will always live a hesitate life.because you can't confess your love,you don't know how to deal with your emotion that puzzle your quiet life.If i were you,i shall tell him my feeling. Whatever the result is good or bad.For that i am able to free myself from the nag.

Tell him how you feel. I wouldn't use "love" quite yet, as that may push him away. You don't really seem to know him well enough to "love" him. I highly doubt that he just wants to be friends. I've had female friends and I can safely say I've never sent them a good morning, or goodnight text message. Tell him you like him. Tell him you'd like to spend more time with him. Ask him how he feels about starting a relationship and see where it's going. It can be nervewracking, you may not get what you want, but you'll never know if you don't try. Don't just wait around for things to happen, because if you do he may get tired of it and move on. Things don't just fall in your lap, you have to chase after them.
