i speak from experience when i say that a guy who is younger than you an shy, is just trying to play hard to get. he wants you to want him, because he really wants you! you see, an average guy does not want to expose his feelings for you in fear of getting hurt. in some cases the guy will even go out of his way to make you think he isn't interested. he might make fun of you, i know very grade school, but he likes you. GO FOR IT!

AnswerIt either means he is too shy or he is not that interested in you. Either way, do you really want to be the person dragging this relationship along? Make the guys chase you! It is more romantic for you and more fulfilling to them when they've caught you. He also may be intimidated by the age difference? Just a few thoughts. AnswerYou are 39 and your boyfriend is a shy 24 year old. Why is it that being shy he makes me pursue the relationship and is he really being shy or is it because he doesn't want to get involved? AnswerYou are 39 and your boyfriend is a shy 24 year old. Because of his shyness why is it he makes me pursue our relationship; is it because he's shy or he doesn't want to get involved?


AnswerYou are second-guessing your boyfriend. He can't be that shy if he's having a relationship with you. He's very young and you are far more experienced. Some young men think it's just great an older woman would find them attractive and would want to have a relationship with them. As you know young men can be just as fickle as young women and what was good for them in the relationship at one time may not be a few months to a couple of years down the road. He obviously hasn't had a chance to know what he really wants out of life. He may even feel that the relationship is too much pressure and that you want more from him than he can give.

He's the younger one, and you've had more wisdom than him at this point in time, so sit him down and ask what is going on. It's best to get this out in the open now. I know you are fearful of being hurt, but why stay in a relationship you aren't sure about.

Good luckMarcy

How do you protect long distance relationship?

Trust is really important in long distance relationships.

And that you will always have time for them.

What to do when you and your friends ex have great feelings for each other and really want to pursue it... we really like each other and we had these feelings even when they where together?

As long as you are single the first thing you should do out of courtesy is to talk to the friend's ex and explain your feelings and you would like to pursue the relationship. 'Ex' means the relationship is over so either your friend can accept the two of you will be seeing more of each other or you may have to walk away from that friendship. Other than being honest with the other partner in the picture there is no reason (only if you feel you both love each other) that you can't pursue the relationship.

It really depends on the people involved and the relationship and connection between the couple. If the two have insecurities then they will question their partners intrest.

What are you supposed to do if you like someone else when you are in a relationship?

If you are in a relationship and like someone else then it is best for everyone involved that you leave your current relationship until you can sort out your feelings. However, you have to do what is in your best interest and jumping into another relationship from another isn't always what it seems. You must really think about things and find out if you are just "liking" someone else because you may be missing something in your current relationship or that you may genuinely like this other person - then what you may do about it if anything. And remember just because you may like someone else that does not always mean they do or will return those feelings.
