There’s a guy I met when I was in the hospital, he was sent home almost the same time as me.
We’ve been keeping in touch on FB, and talking now and then, and he keeps calling me sweetie. This time, he suggested we meet somewhere and maybe watch a movie or bake a cake or something.
I like him. He’s nice to talk to, and he seems calm and relaxed, even though I know he has some anxiety and possibly schizophrenia. (haven’t asked)
I’m just wondering, does it seem like he’s hitting on me, or is he maybe just interested in being friends?
If he’s interested in being friends, that’s fine. Could always use more of those. If he’s hitting on me, well. That makes me nervous tbh.
I’m asexual, and most (not all!) guys seem to expect there to be sex once they get past the kissing part. I can’t and won’t do sex.
Also I don’t know if I’m interested in him that way or not. It’s too early to tell.
Is there a way to kill the expectations before they manifest in him, without burning the bridge (and thereby ruining the possibility of romance or friendship) completely?
