But he says he misses me while hugging me, and he said he loves the way I touch him. Please put some sense into my mind because I'm so confused!
From what you've said, things with this guy sound like they are great.
And some growing pains in a new relationship are completely normal.
Recently it was his birthday, and I met and had dinner with his friends, plus we had a dinner, just the two of us, on the day of his birthday. I kinda have the feeling that somehow he does love me.
