  • Get Support!, Suicide is a very serious matter; it cannot be undone. If you're feeling suicidal, you need to talk to someone. Even if there is no one in real life, there are thousands of teenagers who feel the same way and can talk you out of it. Or, if you would rather talk to an adult, there's /r/suicidewatch. Suicide is never the best solution. Remember that you are loved, always.

I wish relations were simpler [Crushes]

Sooo.. I have had this friend for 3 years now, and we've always got along. 2 years ago, he started teasing me at school, and I started liking him.
When we first were alone, I pushed really far (if you know what I mean) to see his reaction but eventually stopped because I thought it was too soon. However, he didn't say nor do anything. From then on, I always tried to hug, kiss (cheek kiss) him and he never stopped me. This brings us to now. I really want to be his boyfriend, but unfortunately he doesn't want me to really kiss him. When I directly asked him if he was gay, he said "Erm.. noo.." but that doesn't make sense to me. He literally lets me hug and touch him as I want :\
I'm so confused :(
(Sorry for the english, I'm italian.)

maybe talk to him because it sounds like he hasnt given consent once, consent being very important.

I've talked to him many times but he avoids the topic. Outside of this situation, we really are friends, but he's apparently ok with me approaching him. problem is he doesn't say "sorry I don't like you" nor "Sorry I'm straight", leaving me in perpetual hope.

so hes ok with you being sexually involved with him but doesnt acknowledge that it happens and doesnt give any sign of being interested in a relationship?

Well, hugs are not really sexual but.. yeah, pretty much.

oh my mistake i thought you took it further; look im no expert but it seems like this is an important discussion. My advice? put them in a 1 on 1 situation that they feel comfortable in and can get out of if they start disliking it, and tell them EVERYTHING thats on your mind, then let them do what they want with the information, take it or leave it.
