Hello everyone!

I am currently in my first serious relationship with a guy who is quite a few years older than me. The age gap is about 10 years! I am in my early 20's and he is in his early 30's. Anyway, a few months ago I almost broke things off with him because he wasn't making time for me. He was busy with work and his hobbies (working on his car/bike/friends etc...) He would forget to call me back when he said he would etc...

Anyway since then he promised to make time for me and he has. And has for the most part been really good. He seemed upset when I said we probably shouldn't see eachother anymore. Around the time we were having problums, I asked him how he felt about me. He was all like, "I, I like you"

What does this mean exactly? I have very strong feelings for him. Like I said this conversation took place a long time ago. We have been together for a year and 2 months now.

He is kind of shy about sharing his feelings when it comes to things like these, but otherwise he is very outspoken.

My question is how do you know when someone is in love with you? I mean I know a lot of girls who are very wishy washy about the whole thing (totally in love with a guy one day, and then not the next day) But for a guy do they just know if the girl they are with is the one they want to spend the rest of their lives with? I also read that for men, when they feel they are ready to get married they will ask who ever they tend to ask who ever they are with at the time to marry them, even if they are not the love of their lives. I certanly hope this is not true.

Anyway, are there any signs to look for that would tell me how my boyfriend is feeling if he is too shy to tell me?

I mean we have been together for over a year. Don't you think he would have said something by now?

What does "I..I like you" mean?

Anyone? How do you know where your relationship is headed? Does only time tell?

Also, A friend of mine recently got engaged and he made the comment "now I suppose you expect us to get married" He also asked me once how old I wanted to be when I got married. Now do you supose he asked me these questions because he is considering marriage or do you think he is making sure that I don't want to marry him. I know this may sound weird, but I have had guys in the past make comments like these to make sure that I wasn't attached to them.

On guy I dated asked me, "where do you see your self In 5 years? Do you think You'll be married"
All I said back was "I don't know, Maybe"
Well this guy was so conceited that He took that to mean that I wanted to marry him and have his children. He dumped me the next day for this reason. I was completly dumbfounded.

I really don't understand men. Maybe I'm looking way into this. Anyone have any positive advice or suggestions on this matter?

I know I'm young and havn't been in many relationships.....
Thank you everyone
