How to go from friends with benefits to dating
He has made it extremely clear he's not seeing other people 5.
He's mentioned you in the future tense of "if you were my girlfriend..."If you haven't received any of those sorts of signs from him, you may be farther from the gf/bf status than you would like.
He was being pretty macho about it, leading her on while flirting with other girls to see if someone more interesting fell into his lap.
One night he hit this lady up around midnight but didn't get a reply.
If you are trying to turn your friends-with-benefits situation into something more you really ought to look at where you fall in this dynamic.
Is he flexting (flirt-texting) all day or just hitting you up post PM?
My stance is It's a limiting belief to think that relationship can only happen a certain way.
There is no one form of relationship that is superior to the others.
If you feel you are falling fast for your FWB and want more, here are a few guidelines to follow:1. If this arrangement doesn't serve you anymore — the costs really exceed the benefits — you know where the door is, right?
I hate (hate) to talk power dynamics in relationships, because more often than not the best thing to do when someone isn't as into you as you are into them is to just walk away. If you are getting mixed signals from him, just walk away a little bit and watch when he starts hitting you up earlier and more frequently than before.
However, I will say this: absence makes the heart grow fonder. My friend Scott, for example, hooked up with a girl a few times.
Do you always instigate your meet-ups or is it 50/50?
Most importantly: has he given you any indication that he wants to move things beyond the bedroom? He introduced you to a number of his friends (one doesn't count) 2. You had brunch and/or watched morning TV instead of one of you just rolling out of bed and leaving 4.
