    What does it mean when a guy calls you a special friend?

    We're not sleeping together. He knows I'm not into FWB. We talk, flirt, text(everyday). He stops by at my work for few minutes a few times.
    He comes up with a lot of excuses when i want to hang out but would hang out occasionally on a specific day he likes. He told me he's a loner and keeps everyone in a distance. He'd rather spend his days off with his kids or just alone, doing his own activities.

    He told me he's attracted to me in a special way and call me a very special friend. I just don't get it.

    Any opinion?

    If you love something let it go, if it loves you it will come back, if not then it was never yours.

    All I can think of is when it quacks like a duck, then it's probably a duck.

    Special friend? Eh, could mean different things for different men.

    If he's the ultra sweet and honest personality I'd say that "special friend" meant he really cares for you and wants you to get the hint and perhaps reciprocate and let him know if you're into him.

    If he's pretty 'average' in the sense that he's nice but not too sweet, then it could mean he's interested but not THAT interested - almost just keeping you along thinking you're 'extra special' so you keep holding on and perhaps even get horizontal >.< under the pretense of you being 'just that special'

    I would take note of the above and take him for his word. He tells you one thing, but when he tells you the above, THAT is what you should focus on. I wouldn't invest too much time into this guy.
    Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions.

    Being honest may not get you a lot of friends, but it will always get you the right ones.
