This is actually pretty similar to what I’m dealing with right now, except I’m the girl worrying if I’ve screwed it up with this guy. Like, I kinda feel bad if this is what the guy I’m talking to is feeling right now.
Honestly, I would ask her if she wants this to evolve in to anything further. I’ve had similar fears with a guy I’m interested in. He started to like me, I started to like him back, and I absolutely panicked and kinda went off the grid for a bit. People on here (& a couple friends in real life, the ones I’ve managed to talk to about him) have told me it would be in my best interest just to ask him basically what we are, if he wants us to be a thing or not. Just, I guess bring it up casually. What helped me is I got on the chat here & basically had the person on the other end listen to what I wanted to say to him, and tell me how they would react if someone told them that. Of course I haven’t seen him much since planning this out, but I do feel a lot more confident (though still naturally nervous… this conversation could potentially happen in 2 days) since talking it out on chat.
I hope this helps or at least was easy to follow… I’m not great with relationship advice as it’s a new topic in my life, but hey, maybe it will help.
