Is this irreparable?

When a guy casually makes a joke about sex, does that mean that he wants it? I got mad at my best guy friend because I wanted to go out tonight but he was feeling tired and didn't want to. These are some of his messages..."don't feel like I'm rejecting you haha." "I know you're thinking that I am." Then "if you want to sleep with me you're welcome haha." Is it just a joke?

This is not a question about romantic involvements, but I thought it might be a good place to get some advice. I have a close guy friend who I have known since junior high. We've been good friends for about 7 years, and in the same extra curriculars and classes in high school. He now goes to college near where my family lives, so we've been able to connect when I come home for breaks. This friend has struggled (at times very severely) with depression. There have been a couple times where he's had a break down and I've either been in person with him or talking to him over the phone. I've tried to be a supportive friend in these times (usually talking to him and making sure to get someone else involved who actually has knowledge on how to deal with the situation, like a school counselor.) these breakdowns are scary and especially upsetting if he calls over the phone and I feel helpless miles away. I know that there is nothing I can really do besides listen and ask for outside help if I think he's going to hurt himself. Regardless, these episodes are upsetting and make me worry. In the past couple months he has seemed to be better. I came home for break and when he found out I was near him he seemed really eager to hang out. However, the next day he didn't mention it so I let it drop. He went on vacation, and when he got back we were hardly in contact. Randomly he said we should hang out but then when I asked if he had any ideas he said no and again the issue was dropped. During this time I know he was hanging out a lot with another old high school friend. In combination with his seeming lackluster interest in our friendship and our increasingly spread out, dull text conversations I had decided to fade and give the friendship space and silence. Well, tonight he text me saying he ran six miles. I said that's nice. He asked what was wrong and I basically said that he just seemed disinterested in our friendship lately. He went on to say that he didn't mean to come across that way and that he has been so busy making huge changes in his life (being healthier, getting more sleep, and doing his school work) and that he had also been spending a lot of time with the old high school friend. I was very pleasantly surprised to hear that he was making these changes and sounded to be doing really well. However, I'm kinda bothered that he stopped communicating with me during this abundant time of life improvement. There have been times in our friendship where we have lost contact for a bit of time, but usually he would share something like this lifestyle change, as would I. I should mention that he has been there for me when I've had troubles, like going through a stressful time or a breakup. Its not always me being the for him. But I've never gone through anything compared to his breakdowns.

This is about the guy I previously posted about. We are no longer dating, decided to just be friends but still message most of the day. Sometimes sexual, I am under no illusions that it would just be a fwb arrangement. He doesn't want a relationship. I don't have a problem with this, although actually implementing a fwb relationship is not something I'll end up doing.

Is he just a friend, or.... ...

By hopelessromantic294 | Dec 22 2014

So I've been friends with this guy for around 3 years. He has always been there for me and I always viewed him as an older brother because he always told me how I was like a younger sister to him. We are both 20. He always told me before that I was not the type of girl that should be getting hurt so anytime a guy comes around, no one seemed to be good enough for me. He enlisted in the army and everything changed. A month before he left he asked me to take his 2 year old sister out for the day with him because he knows that I work with kids everyday. We had an amazing day. However, during the car ride he kept saying how he could never see us together and that we would be terrible together; out of the blue. Then two seconds later would say how he could picture me pregnant with twins. His parents are always saying in front of us how he should be dating me because I'm the sweetest lady hes brought home, and they mention all the time how they are my future in laws. The day before he left I actually felt like we connected on a higher level and I actually imagined myself kissing him for the first time; which freaked me out because I didn't think I would ever like him. He left for basic and he wrote me all these letters saying how much he missed me and how I made his day getting my letters. He would sign his name with love xoxo, which made me start thinking that he liked me too. He came home for the holidays and asked me to pick him up from the airport, which I of course said yes to! And was so excited to see him. However, not even an hour later, he started acting all weird and disconnected and now I feel like I misread the signs. He mentioned how he wanted a "loose girl" and asked if I knew anyone that could help him.

Theres this guy I've been friends with for 3 years, he and I have always been good friends and are involved in a lot of the same events so we spend a lot of time together. He has never made it known that he likes me but I know that he has off and on for the entire time that we have known each other because his friends have told me so. This year however, we went to homecoming together but nothing happened. We are kinda a thing now but haven't been actually involved with each other physically. Yesterday, we got together to study for midterms and while we were in the car, he out of the blue kissed me. It wasn't so big of a deal that he did that but when I hugged him afterwards, he said "I love you." I had no clue what to do and keep in mind, this guy is in the grade below me so he's super shy around me especially considering I'm a senior. He also has very little experience with girls.

I've been talking to this guy a like for the past 3 and a half weeks. Out of all our nightly text conversations, he is the one who's been starting each conversation. Over text we have great conversations, but in person he avoids me, won't look me in the eye, and doesn't talk to me. When my best guy friend even asked him if he wanted to go with him to go talk to me, he even said no. I'm very confused and starting to feel like he doesn't like me, however, this confuses me even more as he texts me all the time. He told me that texting me that first time was hard as he was extremely nervous and I can tell that he is insecure about himself.

A couple months ago my best guy friend and I had a bit of a "thing" where we both acknowledged that we were into each other and hooked up a couple times. It wasn't anything official. He broke it off because he decided he didn't want to mess up our friendship. But I have been in love with him for 2 years and it completely broke my heart because I thought things had finally worked out. Anyway, we've still been friends since but lately we've been talking more than usually. I've hinted to him a few times with some flirty comments, but he just doesn't seem to be getting it. He wants to hook up but he doesn't seem to understand that the reason id be alright with hooking up is because he means the world to me.

Me and this guy have been very close friends for about eight months now - talking every single day and discussing everything from the small details of our day to the deep secrets of our past. He went through this phase where he was unemployed/where he kept getting rejections/where his ex who he still had feelings for got married and I would do my best to support him through all the hard times. I would describe him as very close to my heart.

He does know that I like him because I admitted so. He stayed friends with me and said he really respected me for having the guts to tell him although he didn't say that he sees me romantically in any way. I don't think he does, but he actually calls me "bro" and "sweet sis" a lot. Hahahaha - I'm OK with that and can enjoy our friendship for what it is.

However, two things have been bugging me lately. After his unemployed phase, he recently got a new job and he has become very close to one of his co-workers. They take lunch together at a separate time from everybody else in the office and he often asks me to help decipher her texts and stuff. He says he doesn't want to fall in love with her (I haven't asked explicitly why, but she is roughly 6 years older than him and also intercultural marriages aren't very common in his family, so that might be a reason.) He said that he is trying to control his feelings, but they spend a lot of time together and it's difficult. I have seen the things she texts him, the flirty compliments which she gives him and the way she behaves around him, so I think she definitely likes him too. They have a lot of fun together, so what I can see is the definite basis of a romantic emotional connection forming - if not an outright relationship.

So I my crush is actually my best guy friend, and he found out that I like him from my friend. Since then things have been really awkward and uncomfortable between the two of us. We use to text, snap and chat everyday but now he rarely ever talks to me. Yesterday a few friends and I went to visit our friends at his school ( we go to a different school) since we had halloween off. I got to see him and we talked, but it was still really awkward. Last night I text him "Hey it was great seeing you today!" and he replied with "Yeah it was! But idk honestly speaking was it a little awk for us to be talking?Sorry I didn't try harder."
