Younger guy dating older women term
” Within The Maybe Zone there are typically two big traps.
There is the Friend Trap (commonly also dubbed ‘The Friend Zone’), and there is the Friends-With-Benefits Trap (sometimes called the ‘F-buddy’ Zone).
He calls you up like you’re his girlfriend sometimes, but he only wants to meet when it’s convenient for him.
What does make him a jerk in either circumstance is if he strings you along without ever making his true intentions (or non-intentions) clear.
The trick in handling this situation is twofold then: (1) Don’t be too judgmental in either situation (unless he willingly deceives you and pretends he wants something else).
Make it a rule to only see him in the company of others, or not at all.
It will feel hard when you like the guy, but believe me, it’s much easier than wasting a year or longer pining over him when he doesn’t have romantic feelings for you.
