Quoting whitney ♥ ainsley:" So I was hanging out with this guy. We acted like we were just friends, maybe some cuddling here and ... [snip!] ... hope my crush goes away, or he decides to stop being afraid of everything? Should I just let it go? I don't know what to do."
keep hanging out with him, but give him his emotional space. i wouldn't try to push him into something bigger because he's obviously not ready. and i would prepare myself for worst-- that he is never ready. it will be hard, i'm sure, but i would still be friends.
