Naku... I sort off have this experience. The guy says to me na like nya ako. Ako, well I dont take it as anything more than it is. Kasi like is different from love for a relationship. So we dated for 2 years, kamusta naman, from college till we graduated. My friends said na nagsabi sa kanila yung guy na love nya ako. Haller, public declaration of affection, kasi never naman nya ito sinabi sa akin.
Then I had a guy friend who tested him. He sent an SMS asking kung ok lang liligawan nya ako, aba ang sagot well he can't do much about it. So yun na yun, it means naglolokohan lang kami kasi hindi kami magiging kami. After I sent the guy an sms and said we should stop seeing each other. Ang sagot sa akin he's not ready for a relationship.
Sobrang habang panahon pa na our friends would always tease us. I moved on and now I'm married. Last I spoke to him he said he has never had a long relationship with anyone since us (sige na nga, relationship na para sa kanya hehe).
Just don't give meaning to it. Like is like and if the guy is serious liligawan ka nya and will say na love ka nya.
