I’m feeling a bit confused and akward .
So, I met this guy over the summer. He was set up to be my math tutor when I was prepping for a placement test. We would study together outside of tutoring hours, he would walk back to my room with me and we would talk.
When he left to go home to Vietnam for the last few weeks of summer, he messaged and/or IMed me almost every night on facebook. We talked about all the many things we have in common, love of simplistic video games, love of nature, music tastes, hobbies, etc.
Now that he’s back and the year has started again, things have gotten a little more confusing. He talked about wanting to see where I live and I invited him to come home with me for thanksgiving, and now he’s talking about taking me to Vietnam with him someday. He also wants me to take him to south america after we graduate. One of the first things he did when he got back was take me to a store and by me ice cream. Not to mention he brought some gifts for me back from Vietnam. We’ve gone out to restaurants together twice now, the first time he paid the second time I had to argue with him just to convince him to let me pay part of the bill (although maybe that’s just a guy thing ) . And after we ate he dragged me to a soccer game. But no sooner was the day winding down than he began talking about us spending time together over the weekend.
He waved his hand and said he could play handball with a friend some other time because he would rather study and go swimming with me.
Now, I’ll admit, I’m kind of thick headed about this sort of thing. I was anything but a social butterfly in high school so I’m not very well versed in the art of flirting versus “hanging out.”
But I can’t help but wonder, is he just a really nice guy who thinks I’m fun to be with, or do you think he might like me in a different way? He hasn’t really come out and said anything suggestive of it other than paying me a compliment here and there (i.e Telling me “You don’t need it” when I said I don’t wear make-up) .
So what do you guys think? Does he have a crush on me?
