If he is your friend rather than your boyfriend and you want to settle down with him, then you need to be sure the feels the same way or it could be be very awkward. If you are already dating him, then he may feel the same way although he may not be ready to get serious. Just talk to him, about your futures, but dont scare him off. Usualy does not work.Will most likely ruin the frienship after wild short sexual relationship.

You've been friends for more than five years now and he just got out of a divorce then we started talking again and yet he tells me he's not ready for a serious relationship what does he mean?

He means that the relationship goes on as before--he is not ready for a serious relationship. Most people aren't themselves for a couple of years since a divorce is a spiritually wearing experience, and a rebound relationship is just that. You would be wise to let him take his time since a person who is mentally healthy is a better partner in the long run. Be a supportive friend and let him resolve his feelings.

What do you best guy friend says he likes me a lot and wanted to kiss me but he has a girl friend and me a boyfriend for more than 3 years we both in long distance relationship as well?

Well to be honest it sounds like he is lonely, and wants some attention from someone he is physically around. If you guys are both in serious long distant relationships, he might just be thinking, that he can fool around with you when his girlfriend isn't around. If he is serious about you and really likes you, then he should break up with his girlfriend, and show you he is serious.The real question, though is how you feel about him. If you find yourself attracted to him too, then you see if he is serious too, but if you still see him as a best friend, and you are serious about your long distance relationship, then just gently let him know your interested in him like that and still love your boyfriend.

How long should a person wait to get into a serious relationship after divorce?

Depends on how that person feels and believes what a relationship is. There are those who still believe a relationship is forever and if it dies, they grieve the loss as death itself and the time to start another relationship is as long as the grieving process takes. Then there's the Hollywood relationship where the serious relationship is already ongoing before the actual divorce. So it depends on the individual and his/her environment.

How do you have a serious relationship?

AnswerDate a serious person. Also, someone who isn't repulsed by the idea of marriage.AnswerIf you're ready for a serious (steady or permanent) relationship, you must be sure that your partner has the same intention. Don't assume; a successful relationship is based on communication. If two people don't share a common goal, the relationship will only go so far. A strong relasionship is also dependent on the person. A common goal is only half the story; for a long term relationship to last, the magic of the physical part is not more important than knowing and respecting your partner. It also helps to share common values and interests.

I love my boyfriend but deep down inside I know he's not the guy for me what should I do?

Speak to him. Have a long conversation about where the relationship is going and how you feel. Be honest with yourself, and him. Don't lead him along if you are not ready to commit. See where you end up and if you don't think you want to be with him, in a long term relationship...then it is a good idea to split up now...before it becomes too serious.

When do you start a relationship?

There are many different opinions to when you can start a relationship but I think the best advice you can take from me is when you think you are ready. When some people think they are ready to start a relationship, particularly during teen years, the relationship doesn't often work out well and doesn't last very long. Don't rush into anything just because maybe your friends are all dating someone. Whenever you think your ready and have fully discovered who you are and who you want to be in the future, then you will be ready to tackle a relationship with someone you care about.

Im in love with your friend that ive known since preschool what do i do?

it kind of depends on how old you are now and how sure you are that you love them. like if your too young for a serious relationship then i wouldn't do anything right now, because if you guys tried to go out but u werent ready then you could lose that best friend. but if you really love him/her and you're ready to take the risk it takes to be with them then go for it, let them no how u feel. hiding it and keeping it to yourself will only get you hurt in the long run when they end up with someone else because they didnt no how u felt hope that helped a little

Is normal to have a crush even if you are in a long term relationship and love your partner?

It's normal to have a crush even if you are in a serious relationship. Crushes are typically innocent admiration from afar. But it ends there. If a crush develops into flirting, you are risking your current relationship. If you have serious feelings for someone else, reevaluate your relationship and be honest with your partner about how you feel.
