So I hooked up with this guy in the summer, and then he decided we should just be friends. I had made it clear that I didn’t want a relationship, especially since he was still hung up on his ex, so no feelings were hurt.
So, the next few times we hung out I acted like my regular self - which means I was checking out all the people we saw. I didn’t flirt with anyone really, my attention was on him as a friend but he seemed hurt or jealous of this. When he first caught me checking out a guy he was quick to say the guy wasn’t cute. He then got kind of pouty and said, “Maybe I’ll start checking people out,” and he did, only after he saw another guy and I exchange glances and eyebrow raises. I checked out the girl with him enthuisiastically, glad to have a bro, and then he stopped after that.
Another time I was talking to one of his friends. I meant to say “my guy friend Kyle” and I slipped and said “boy friend” I quickly laughed it off and said “Well, not BOYFRIEND, but a boy or guy who is my friend” Later when we were alone he started talking about a conversation we had a long time ago about how I could never date Kyle. And I repeated it and explained he was dating someone else, I just slipped up.
Tonight, he text me three times within a half hour, and called me while I was out with Kyle. I called him back and chatted with him. I was in a good mood (therefore talking too much) and when he called me out for being dirty minded, I said I couldn’t help it because I was with Kyle (the most dirty minded guy I know who is always hooking up with chicks and tends to overshare) suddenly his tone changed and he just said “Really?” in a kind of disaproving voice. I explained it and said we would meet at Tim Horton’s, where he had already invited me. Suddenly he was saying he was with other people, that he didn’t want to take me away from Kyle, that maybe we shouldn’t see eachother and when I said, “You called me, remember?” he quickly said he was just letting me know he was in town. Which is why he sent me multiple texts in a short span of time AND called me? I told him I now had a craving for coffee, so I would go up there and see him if I saw him.
It’s weird. I don’t know if he’s jealous (he’s away at school and has briefly mentioned a few girls he has unsuccessfully pursued) or if he’s just acting like a protective older brother as Kyle often does. Huh.@7 months ago with 3 notes
