I don't get men!

I'm just venting as I just feel compelled even though I might get some comments about the situation. But either way you get points for your post so it's all good. So, I'm not going to focus on one in particular. I don't get any men. They're all confusing and don't think. I've been taking a break from dating, and focusing back on me, plus I have plenty that I'm working on. I'm not desperate for a man, or wanting to jump into a relationship right now. I have feelings for certain guys but since they don't return them then I'm starting to realize I deserve better and to move on. I have but since I'm taking a break. SO, i'm yesterday I get a text from this one guy, (he and I have a long history) no point in jumping into it again. We agreed to just be friends. And our conversations in general are really slow and like once a month. Anyways. He he saids how's your sexy ass been? and asking how I am? what I'm up to? He asked me to send a pic, so I do it's just a pic of me in my car with my sunglasses and he saids very cute. And, then saids can I text you later. and then sends me a picture of his new underwear for baseball. Not that I didn't like it. I just don't get why he bothers texting me. it's so confusing....

  • You sound like you are in a very good spot mentally. I don't get men either and have long ago given up trying. It does sound like he is just bored and flirting. It's up to you if you want to feed into that or not.

    And good for you making it clear the FWB wasn't gonna happen. It never really works out. Somebody ends up wanting more and gets hurt.

  • If it were me I'd stop with the picture sending and receiving.

    Believe me, he gets it. He doesn't view you as a partner, he thinks he might get lucky. I'd suggest you prune those guys out of your life for good

  • He's looking for a booty call

  • That would be confusing to me, too, to the point where I would be put off and not wanting to talk to him at all. It sounds like he's playing games with you.

  • This is not somebody I think is worth your wasting your time even trying to figure out. He's looking for an easy score and probably nothing more. Delete his number from your phone and block his number from yours. You will be much better off!

  • from the way the conversation went sounds like he was bored ; -)

  • Eh, don't waste your time on him. When you're really ready to jump in the pool again, you will "get" men quite easily.

  • Why would a guy send you a picture of his under wear. SEX!!
    This is one of the guys you really want to stop talking to.

  • I appreciate all the comments. I just want to make it clear he doesn't feel I'm a botty call. he's had several opportunties. and he's chicken out from everyone of them. I did make it clear that I wasn't going to do friend with benefits. We tried before and it just didn't work out.
