Is It a Relationship or Not? When You Want Something More
Jealous emotions tend to rise within you when you desire something more from someone that you just aren't getting. That special someone seems to be having a good time a part from you, appearing to like another more than you, and may have some great things happening to him or her. You want to be a part of your friend's world, but your position has yet to be defined.
Know what you want and what it takes to get your needs met. Do you seriously want this person in your life for always or was your last encounter just a nice date or great sex?
From talking to spending more time together, state how this person makes you feel then give this person the space he or she needs to take in everything you have said. When your friend seems to be drawing near to you and sharing what kind of relationship he or she wants, talk about the future, but don't say too much like "I want you to be my wife/husband..." or else you might scare this person away.
Now if he or she doesn't seem interested in a committed relationship and is actually drawing away from you, then you should know where you stand in this person's life. Therefore, create a safe distance emotionally from him or her so that your feelings don't get in the way of logic.
