Well, that is a touchy subject. You really don't want him to feel pressured, but at the same time, you don't want to sit around waiting on him. I would simply give hi. What he says he wants, friendship. Hold off on the affection. If he wants more than that, he needs to step it up a notch. As How long to give him, that is ultimately your choice. I am thinking a 3 year relationship is a lot to come off of. I would give it at the most six months, but that is me. Was that helpful?
