Why not be honest? I like you as only a friend. I think that’s the right thing to do. You know how much it sucks to be in his position. Ya know, waiting to find out the guy actually doesn’t want anything with you and wastes your time.
I’m a Scorpio moon. I feel like I do that too. I become afraid and push the guy away. It’s almost as if I do that because I want them to show me they care about me. Honestly though, with a good guy who’s wants a relationship with you and really likes you, it’s a lot easier to feel happy and not worry as much about everything
Sounds to me that he doesn’t want to commit to you, but also doesn’t want you dating anyone else. That’s why he’s stringing you along, but not putting any effort into being a boyfriend to you. That’s bs.
My suggestion is to move on. He’s not going to change.
