The fact that he said to you he's just "one of the guys" does not necessarily mean that you're too "butch". For most guys, if they want to be friends with a chick, they kinda have to get it straight in their head that she's not all that attractive, otherwise it'll fuck up the friendship cuz he'll always be leering at her and wondering and thinking and it'll just get screwed up. As for being too "butch" tomboys don't really bother that many guys this day and age, in fact, some of us prefer them

I agree with both oezoem and moridinthe whole thing you hang out with the guysand do the "guy stuff" so you have become friends in that way and that would ruin the whole thing. I have more to say on the matter but i have to go now so i will reply again later.

and no it does not mean you are bucth (is he a straight foward guy?) cause if so he would have most likley said if he thought u were butch.

no he wouldn't.

Men never tell the truth to women ever.

Advice we learn from primitive dating. It's the art of conversational misdirection. The woman is pig-ugly with bad hair and no fashion sense with no personaility. We will compliment clothes, we'll compliment her daring fashion sense. We might even say she's got an interesting personality.

We lie all the time, especially to our friends and partners.

And it's all womens fault to.

you women ask which do you prefer the red or the green for example. You like the green.... she's picked the red. You give an honnest answer, you get crucified for not agreing with the hormonal timebomb in the bedroom. You say you have no opinion to avoid this situation, your crucified for being indecisive and not paying enough attention.

Men Lie....period.

Best thing to do.... post a picture of yourself on DF's gallery and see what responses you get.

Hmm, about guys never telling truth to women... It's not always so. Me personally, if i do not want to lie or tell the truth, I prefer to keep silence. And maybe even then I will eventually tell what I really think. I only talk something when i mean it. Telling lies doesn't lead to a good end anyways, because sooner or later the truth comes out. Or maybe i am just some kind of a very wrong guy then?

What that means is that he doesn't want to date you for some reason, and that is just and excuse

Fuck yeah! Give me a smart, independent women who can look after herself and likes me for who I am. Not because I have a dick and she thinks she needs one to be complete.

I only know 3 women like that in real life; and they are all basically unavailible.

One moved to Florida after I got to know her.

Another is my mom, (Definatly not my type)

And the third I really have feelings for . . . Unfortuantly she's going with another guy.

Ok, I'm not sure if I am right, but if a guy gives you that it is simply that, you are one of the guys. It doesn't mean your butch, it means that he sees you just like one of his guy friends. If you hang out with him and his guy friends that would really explain it. When you are the only girl in a group of guys, it is typical of the guys in the group to either to think of you as one of the guys or if you like one of the guys, all the others are into and the one you want thinks of you as this super cool chick but the other guys like you so he just thinks of you as one of the guys as much as he can. (sorry a little personal venting in that)

doctor goddamn knowitall, putting in his NON cents again...:

speaking as a guy who usually gravitates toward female pals who, in turn, usually gravitate toward male pals:

it just means ya both waited too long to make yer moves. forget about it; it's over. it's too late.

that doesn't mean you can't take a step backwards, but who wants to do that? IMHO, it's usually best to be pals than try to dance through hoops doing some kind of bizarre mating ritual for something that, in the end, has less of a chance at succeeding (i'm talking about ALL relationships here, not just friends-turnt-lovers) than George W. does at math. most people, sad as it is, just don't stay together.

on the other hand, it also means that you've formed a connection more intimate than the one men and women generally share, believe it or not. people who have sex (or just sexygood times- you know what i'm talking about) necessarily are cutting into each other's "talk time". unless they have really good conversations WHILE having sex. and let's face it: a "sexual" relationship involves sex, whether it's happening, or it's trying to happen. and that takes time away from other things.

so think of it this way: instead of having really good sex, you're having really good conversation. which will, in the end, be drastically more meaningful and fulfilling than even the best of playful boudoir romps.

This should not be considered a bad thing. It does not mean you are unatractive, just that he likes you but does not find you attractive in a physical manner. And since platonic relationships are more important then physical ones . . .
