    When a person wants to date you and sees serious potential, he/she wants to make sure you are not snapped up by someone else -so even if that person mistakenly sets things up like a hang out and hook up - he/she makes up for it by telling you simply and directly he wants a serious relationship and to properly date you - wants to "start over"

    I'm not sure what you meant by FWB -do you mean that you two were good friends? If so why not ask him what he meant -or you're just using it as shorthand for the sexual arrangement you had in the past when he told you he didn't want to date you?

    Yes please stop wasting your time.
    What about the potential response from the op, that he is shy? Awkward with communication?
    Confused about what they were? I mean seriously , the poor guy!?
    He took a break after she said she liked him?? What if he actually wanted more from her? And he is that socially inept to contact her until months later?

    Oh nevermind, I forgot that he had multiple partners while with the op.
    They all dried up. Turns out that he is just a guy looking to get laid with whomever will oblige.

    It sounds like the well went dry, where he figured you were a quick pick/sure thing, etc. He'll be on his merry little way as soon as you start asking questions again, as he did before.

    Maybe it's time to set your standards at a higher level, while keeping your self-respect intact? You may just present yourself as someone wanting to date, rather then a person who settles for FWBs. Your call...

    For the sake of accidentally writing a novel, I have been fwb with this guy for about a year now. It started to get a little more intimate in my opinion, and he even once used the word dating when referring to us. Mind you, we werenít hanging out that often- maybe like 2-3 a month? So, me being kind of an idiot, I told him I liked him because I truthfully did, and he just said the ďyouíre cool, but Iím not ready for commitmentĒ.

    That was in October, and I havenít seen him since. Earlier this month, her texted me out of nowhere and just said ďhey!Ē So I didnít respond cause I was over it. But then he texted me ďhey!Ē Again, and me having no self-control, I texted him back but told him I wasnít able to hang out. He then texted me again (this is all within 1 week) and I finally agreed to see him.

    It was truly like we never had time apart, and it was a lot of fun. I finally felt like I could just see him without freaking out or ďgetting in my feelsĒ. EXCEPT- he asked if I have slept with anyone else, and then told me he hasnít slept with anyone else.

    I donít think heís lying to me, but Iím just confused as as to why he hasnít slept with anyone else?? Am I looking too far into this???
    That's why he hit you up, because he's likely been unable to pull anyone else. Did you sleep with him when you finally agreed to hang out with him? If you did, then congratulations, you just confirmed to him that you're good for the odd booty call.

    ... Or perhaps the new girl he is schtuuping started asking commitment questions so he's shelving her (like he did you) until her emotions simmer down (like you think yours have).

    Unfortunately, yes I did. After all of these responses, everything is very much clear to me.

    So what's your strategy regarding this playa you've found yourself with?

    because when I knew him before, he slept with multiple people at the same time.
    P.S. I wouldn't believe him that he hasn't slept with anyone else. I hope you insisted that he wear a rubber.

    Iíve known him for 3 years and weíve hung out platonically in the past. Definitely not married or involved with anyone else. Been to his house multiple times.

    Iím just hung up on the fact that he ďhasnít slept with anyoneĒ. I do trust him because I donít really have a reason not to? In the past we havenít used protection when I asked him first, and Iíve been clean this whole time. We can all harp on him for being a douche, but I also very much play into it. At one point- while I was at his house, I told him I was only there for sex and it seemed to have hit him weird?

    My plan for now though is to not answer. I deleted his number and deleted out texts, and I plan on actually using some self-control when he texts me. I most likely will see him around, so idk whatís gonna happen then. But for now- self-love.

    Yes, my bad... I deleted that question after re-reading and saw that you have known him for awhile.

    So you've been tested? You did say he's not monogamous in nature so??? If he's had opportunity, considering his past 'dating' habits chances are high that he's not being straight up with you. The reason not to is he's doing you now and doesn't want to look like the bad guy so his 'supply' gets cut off.

    We can all harp on him for being a douche, but I also very much play into it. At one point- while I was at his house, I told him I was only there for sex and it seemed to have hit him weird?
    I doubt it. It prolly just shocked him that you were that bold when likely you haven't been before.

    My plan for now though is to not answer. I deleted his number and deleted out texts, and I plan on actually using some self-control when he texts me. I most likely will see him around, so idk whatís gonna happen then. But for now- self-love.
    Well that's one way to wean yourself off of him if you can do it but if it were me, I'd be hitting him up and telling him that I've realized that casual sex with him isn't working for me and I'm ending that now since you're not open to a commitment and commitment is my end dating goal. When you close the door on situations you don't really want to be in then that's truly showing you self love.

    Cheers...

    How foolish not to use a condom. Never risk your health or life in this manner. Stop being so naive.

    You need to get to a clinic for STD testing as well as some info/pamphlets on appropriate protection and birth control. You can also contract a host of STDs from oral sex, especially from someone as promiscuous as this creep..

    Keep in mind many STDs are asymptomatic or have vague symptoms. You could become infertile so this guy gets free escort services? If you have a sex addiction get help.
