Whats up with this? - July 23rd 2012, 02:14 AM

There's this guy, who is the son of my pastor. He and I have chatted some on Facebook and have had a couple of conversations at church. The reason I started talking to him is his sort of friend, the guy who asked me out that I mentioned in my other post, said something rude about me. My pastor said something to me about it, because his son had told him.

At that point, I asked his son about it and he told me what was said. We've had a few more conversations since then about random stuff. He,s flirted with me(he flirts with all girls though) before this though but this is the first time I've ever really talked with Jim.

He is super cute and can be hilarious. I'm moving in a month, so it's not something that is a long term type of thing.

For whatever reason, he seems to really respect me. I'm not sure why. It's not like he is really interested-I have to keep conversations going on Facebook(which isn't a good thing, right?)

So, opinions on what I need to do so I don't screw this up in the month I have left. Any major no Nos? I tend to be really intense which I'm working on. I'm viewing this as good practice for dealing with guys later on. My biggest problem is it makes it awkward with his dad.

Hi there

Get to know this guy as a friend. He may be better at conversations on Facebook once he gets to know you a bit better (also I find us girls are always better at those sorts of conversations anyway-guys prefer to talk in person)

As for his dad, just respect him. Show him that you are a good person and it shouldnt be awkward, especially if you are just starting out as friends with this guy, before anything else.

Hey there, I've moved this over to Friends&Family since you aren't looking for a relationship with him.

I agree with what Mia said, but I'd also like to add that you should try and not stress out too much about this. Try and have fun in your last month where you are. The next time you talk to him you should ask him about himself and see if you can't find a common interest. Not only do people love talking about themselves, but if you find something you both are into then he may contribute to the conversation more.

And here you are living, despite it all.

We do have a few common interests, like nickel back.Thanks, makes sense to me. It just kinda stressed me because most of the time guys don't talk to me.
