Have Relationship Questions? Ask a Counselor for Answers ASAP
Welcome. Please let me take a moment to review your question.
I can certainly understand how it might be unclear on what the status of the relationship with your friend is. It sounds like it is confusing because, on one hand you are in contact every day by text, but on the other hand, the actual times and places you have been together are limited. This can certainly be perplexing. I would suggest gently inquiring about where he sees the relationship going in the future. You can do it in a kind way, without pressure, and more about just being curious. If he doesn't know, or needs time to think about it, I would give him that time, but making sure he knows you are interested in something more. This type of question can open up a deeper discussion about what both of you want and need, so you can have more conversation about it. But it's best to be prepared with either answer- if he doesn't want to be serious, how might you feel? And if he does, what would that look like? Talking these options over with a friend or even journaling about them can really help BEFORE the conversation. I hope this helps. I always appreciate a positive rating if you feel I have met your needs. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do. Take good care. Dr. Brown
I agree with what you said. I also am afraid of going through it because it has a fear of rejection.
