Sex & the Single Woman: The Very Blurred Line

In this crazy thing called love, so often I find that women face ridiculous amounts of confusion.

Earlier this week, I was talking with one of my friends about a guy she “might” like. “Might” is kind of a funny term, because sometimes I feel like my feelings for someone are very defined. At the same time, I feel like she is in the same position as many other women.

She has known the guy for about two and a half years, and she was interested in him after she initially met him. She gradually lost interest in him, and in between that point and now he was openly interested in her friends.

Now, two and a half years later, she is finding that those feelings might not be completely gone. She has started hanging around him more and she found that they have grown closer.

The question of the hour is whether her feelings for him are those of just a very close friend, or those of someone who wants to be more than friends. Why is it that this line is blurred? Shouldn’t it be clear if we like a guy?
