Hey everyone! I'm 24 and looking for relationship advice. The issue is a guy friend of mine wants me to be his girlfriend.:confused:

First off, I have to stay I am really struggling on what to do about this issue because my friend is the nicest guy and is really great boyfriend material. I met him about 5 months ago. Pretty soon after meeting him, he showed signs of romantic interest. For example, we would take walks around his neighborhood to talk and he would want to hold my hand. This intially really freaked me out because I really didn't have any interest in becoming anything more than friends. I explained to him at this point that I didn't want to be in a romantic relationship, but I think the words "at this time" gave him hope for the future. He said he understood and that he wasn't looking for anything serious either. So I continued to see him as a friend (go to different outings together). Even though I still didn't feel a physical attraction to him, I thought establishing a good friendship would led me to eventually feel more loving feelings for him. Yet, even though I talk to him everyday on the phone and see him almost every weekend, I don't have any stronger feelings about him. For example, I don't miss him and I don't even want to kiss him. I feel horrible because during the past five months that I have been waiting for my feelings to change toward him (become romantically interested), I have been stringing him along. I don't know what to do! On one hand I don't want to end our friendship, but on the other, I don't want to lead him on either. I'm also concerned about addressing this issue with him because he is very sensitive and the last thing I want to do is crush him. I feel like there is something the matter with me for not wanting to be his girlfriend. What complecats the issue even more is that I have gone out on outings with him and his parents and family on several occasions. His family is wonderful! He always tells me how much his parents like me and they always invite me over for dinner.

If anyone has any advice on what I should do or should not do regarding this relationship issue, please reply! I would greatly appreciate it!! Thanks!!:)
