Hello . .. first off, forgive me - I am MAN-BEHAVIOUR-DUMB !!

I've known a man through work for a few years.

Summergirl, you're not the only one who is 'man behaviour dumb'.

Sorry but if he's showing more interest in your truck than in you, chances are he's more interested in your truck than in you.

I agree that if he really likes you, he will make some kind of effort. Or he will trying to pick up on signals you give him that YOU are interested as well. When people like one another, they always try to gauge the other person's interest. Exactly like you are now. Both men and women do this equally. So, are you showing an obvious interest in him? Do you flirt?

I agree your friend is pretty man-dumb too, anyone who knows men at all knows that the concept of hidden messages exists outside their gender entirely.

Summergirl, please also notice that he hasn't said "I'd love to come exploring with you sometime".

I think that your open invitation that he's welcome to come fishing with you is an excellent idea. It's not pinning him down, not too forward but a gentle hint that perhaps more would be welcome.

Well, also understand that not everything a man says or does is an indicator of his interest. Sometimes a casual conversaton is just a casual conversation :) That's why signs and signals don't really mean anything until one person has the guts to say "I like you" or "let's go out sometime".

Thanks Sandra . . . I did get a chance to throw the invite out about a week ago.

Haha-- for someone who said she's "man-behavior dumb" you sure handled that pretty expertly!
