We also just released a book based on the most frequently asked questions we receive: “He’s Not That Complicated: How to Crack a Man’s Romantic Code to Get the Relationship You Want.” You would be amazed (or maybe you wouldn’t be) at how often I am asked if a guy likes them or not.
Or what it means when he didn’t text back right away. Here’s a curriculum of common situations (and what to do about them) to check out: Does He Want to Date Me Or Not?
It's obvious that you're an important part of his life, or otherwise he'd be out with his drinking buddies instead of holding you in his arms every night. First of all, don't get overemotional about it yet. He likes the friends-with-benefits arrangement and regular sleepovers. If he says you mean the world to him but still doesn't assign a label to your relationship, believe him at his word.
You might wonder if you should give him the big ultimatum about your relationship status, let it slide, or have a conversation about mutual respect and expectations in a relationship. Before you go having the relationship talk and cause an explosion or breakup prematurely, look at these signs to determine where you fit on his relationship totem pole. He might not be ready to change his Facebook relationship status or go ring shopping, but you might be on the track to falling in love.
But I have a confession to make: I don’t answer every question that comes into my inbox.
I am grateful to have such loyal readers who contribute great questions to me.

Between swigs of her martini, she told me she was going to share the most important lesson she ever learned about men, women and dating: Men are idiots. If you can find a man who is less of an idiot than most, or a girl who is less crazy than most, then you’ve done well. They are typically an endless recounting of little details and interactions that swing the poor girl back and forth between thinking he’s into her and thinking he’s not. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – walking down the path of distrust or suspicion is a slippery slope. Check out these two articles that explore the topic of trust in relationships/dating: Does My Boyfriend Really Mean What He Says? Detailed answer here: Can a Girl Say I Love You First?
Let me make this whole thing easy for you: If you can’t tell whether or not he likes you, your best bet is to strongly that he does and give him clear and obvious opportunities for him to make a move for you (assuming you’re into him and not just wondering for vanity’s sake.) He’s shy? If a guy doesn’t call, it means he’s just not that into me, right?
