Hello, l am a 25 year old female who has a really good job, a kind heart and a lot of empathy and is funny, smart and from what others say good looking as well. I am not trying to boast in any way here just trying to paint a picture because it can be hard to figure out with what intentions some men approach me at times. Anyways, I really like a guy (23) that l unexpectedly fell for. Things have been pretty much hot and cold between us and it is really hard to figure him out. He says that he likes me but seems to be reluctant for some reason. He seems to be guarded and l don’t know what l should do about it. Or am l getting played? Is that an excuse guys use? If any wise men that can help my conundrum and voice an opinion, it would be very much appreciated.
