Does he like me or does he want me to bog off?

I have known this guy for ten years or so. It's a long story for us. He liked me ten years ago as tried to get me into bed but I was getting over an ex so nothing happened. I reall, reall liked him.

Recently he's back in town and occasionally talks to me. He's invited me to his house as his sister has had a baby too and runs a baby group there. I have found myself lusting after him again and regretting the fact that I didn't get it on with him all those years ago.

Bumped into him yesterday and he went bright red.Embarassingly so. I tried to initiate a conversation with him but he didn't really want to hang around although he didn't ignore me. I felt a bit annoyed as I really want to catch up but I can hardly talk when I see him either as I like him so much.

So does he:
a)Really like me hence the redness and reluctance to talk.
b) Know I like him but thinks that it's embarassing and wants me to leave him alone.Thus he dosn't want to encourage me by having a proper converstion with me.

I know I'm being stupid here but there is a really lovely yet painful story about what happened with us in the past (nothing sexual) but I don't want to repeat it here to protect anonymity.

Well you'd know if it was a) because he'd only go red if that's what always happens iuswim.

I'd back off if I where you. If he wants to catch up and talk he will.

where did you bump into him? Was he with anyone? Was he about to meet up with anyone? You coiuld have cought him right after he'd done something he didn't want anyone to know about (maybe he'd just been shaggin his lover or something).

Im with OMDB - he'd been up to something incredibly naughty or inapropriate (probably with someone else) and thats why he blushed.

If in doubt, just ask him for a date.

You are right I think. It's gutting though. I'm going to back off. I feel like a twat.

I need to get over this as he DOES have a gf and had hence been shagging her. gutted. So I will not ask him for a date!
