I've been talking to this guy since February..we normally talk every day....he lost his wife 5 years ago to a brain aneurysm...and he's still trying to get over that. He's told me he likes me....but I don't know what to do at this point. We've not kissed, touched (other than hugs) or anything...How can I get him to warm up to it a bit?

After going out a few times, make the first move.  Move in to kiss him, then go from there.  If he pulls away he obviously isn't ready.

I think it just depends on whether he's really ready or not! I wouldn't push it but if he isn't ready then he isn't ready. That's a tough situation to be in :(

We've hung out a few times at his house. Both of us are too shy to make the first move...we've actually talked about this lol.

He's not that into you, or else he is extraordinarily shy. The most happily married men usually jump back in pretty quickly if their wife dies.

well when he and I first started talking...he had told me that his friends have been like pressuring him back into dating...and that he's not ready for that or whatever..and a lot of his friends have been telling him that he should be remarried by now. I told him maybe not married yet...but at least back in the game.
