I'm looking to be told the truth not just what I want to hear!  There's a guy in my life I've been friends with for a while, he's a little bit younger than me but not much.  I feel like we have a real connection and we have kissed a few times, usually when there's alcohol involved.  I had made a point not to make a move on him because if anything was to come from it I think he's at a place in his life where he'll be in college and enjoing himself whereas I have just finished.  I have thought about him a lot especially the last month then he suggested we had a catch up and watched a movie together, which we did.  We ended up in a steamy make out session.  After a while he excused  himself to go to the bathroom and we talked for a while then went out with some mutual friends.  He wasn't giving me many positive signals after in front of anyone bar a brief play tackle.  I have heard he likes me but when I have tried talking to him it feels like drawing blood from a stone.  I don't know whether he was curious, then we made out and he felt nothing or maybe he's feeling that I don't like him that way.

Maybe he's thinking that he's going back to college soon so he doesn't want to start something now.  And most college age boys will take any making out when they can get it.  When you say it's hard to talk, is that about everything or only about feelings or your situaton?

Hi  Welcome to the board.

  One thing, you are in a different stage of life.  You will be going to the world while he will be college bound.

Music summed it up perfectly  "And most college age boys will take any making out when they can get it." As a guy, I couldn't say it any better. The longer you hang on, the more disappointment you're going to feel. Put the thought of him aside until after he graduates/finds work, if you're both still available then, that would be the time for a chance at something more real.
