So I’ve been talking to this guy for about 7 months and everytime I bring up our relationship status, his response is that we’re more than friends but not in relationship. He’s introduced me to all his friends and wants to me to get along with them. Idk what to do? I actually like this guy, but is he really worth it?

Seems like you need to shake him a bit. Ask the right questions. If you sense his hesitancy, I’m sorry it calls for trouble and heartbreak in the future. 7 months is a long time indeed unless he is super young.


How old is this guy? When is he expecting to be in a relationship then, 7 months is a long time. Esp if he’s older.

But since you like him, talk to him! Ask about how much more time he needs before you guys can make things “official”.


Seems he is being very clear with you - i give him credit for that but you don't seem to be understanding.

What am I not understanding? What’s he being clear about?


You clearly don’t seem happy about the relationship status. Talk to the guy and ask him why he doesn’t think you guys are in a relationship? He may have his reasons. If not, think about what’s important for you - are you ok not being in a relationship but being more than friends? You’ll know what to do from there hopefully.

Just finished my first week in BL (I clerked the year before) and the imposter syndrome is unreal. I am paranoid, can’t tell if people are toxic or trustworthy, can’t tell if everything is fine or if I’m about to fail horribly and they will just watch it happen and not care. I’m so paranoid right now. How do you find people you trust? How do you trust that everything is okay if there’s no indication things are not??
