What does it mean when a guy and a girl have the following conversation?

Asked by Khajuria9 (1561 points ) March 1st, 2014

Girl:
“Hi there!
I have been yearning for you to know something that I have in my mind and I think this is the right time to offer my honesty to you. A whisper rose up from deep inside my heart and I must listen to it. I would like to share my heart with you.
I had been thinking about you and am appreciative of you as in the form of you, I see a person who is wonderful, inspiring and a pleasure to be around.
I think that I would like to know you better.
Hope to hear from you!”

And Guy ( in response) :
“I am an open book, you know me already :) ”

What according to you does the guy mean when he writes this?

I think he means, “I have no clue what any of that means, so I’m going to take a stab at it.” His response does not truly “answer” the original message.

What a dramatic way to say, “I like you, do you like me?” I’ve never been interested in a guy I’d call an intellectual (the exceptionally smart men I know are also exceptionally obnoxious and/or pretentious, which is unattractive), not that you have to be an intellectual to understand that message, but I find it best to be straightforward with guys. Sending poetry or flowery language like this is just going to leave many of them scratching their heads. I don’t find it really impressed them – especially young men who have yet to develop an appreciation for such things.

I think he did get the general message and clearly is responding to the “I’d like to get to know you better.” His response is “you already know me.” That could be good or bad or neither. No one here can tell you for sure. You’re just going to have to ask him.

Absolutely nothing, except that the girl had better dial it down a notch. Too intense.

I’m guessing since you refer to yourself as girl, you are young if he is also young then make it simple. Men do not think like woman, especially young ones. Be straightforward. Save the romance until you are actually in a relationship with this guy. I think the :) is an encouraging ending, so ask him again.

He means, “Yes.”

The relationship is already doomed; linguistic incompatibility.

He’s interested in other things, like what you got from the neck down and not what ‘s going on in your head. He could just have easily said “Whatever.”

She is too verbose. Best is to be terse, simple, and to the point.

It means he has no idea how to respond to all those words.

Read this book and you will save yourself a lifetime of second guessing.

Just count the number of letters in your prose and his response and it become even more telling.

The guy is showing appreciation for what the girl said, but at the same time he is saying, let’s get past this poetry. I have opened up to you and we have spoken enough that you should have a fairly good idea of who I am. Let’s keep it real.

I think the guy gets the hint that the girl likes him and wants to get to know him better, but I bet he’s probably wondering exactly what she means and what she wants, because the language is so flowery and not exactly grammatically correct. He may not know whether the girl wants to be good friends, boyfriend/girlfriend or what.

I suspect that the girl and the guy are already either acquaintances or friends, already, so the guy is probably a little bit confused as to whether the girl wants more than that. The girl never really says what she wants, because she’s hiding her emotions behind all of the flowery language (which kind of doesn’t make sense, at least not to me, and I’m a girl).

Most guys prefer straightforward conversation. If you’d like to get to know this guy better and possibly date him, tell him that, and see what he says.

Try this, “Ron, we’ve known each other for awhile now and I really like you, and you seem to like me too. I was thinking that maybe we should go on a date. What do you think?”

He will either say that he does want to go on a date with you and that would be good, or he might say something like, “I really do like you @Khajuria9, but if we went on a date it would ruin our friendship.” If he says the second thing, it means that he only considers you to be like a friend or a sister and doesn’t see you in a romantic way.

With the strategic placing of the “already” i’m guessing he’s an exasperated jew #oldschool

Nah. A Jew would say, “Already, you know me?” with a rising inflection.

This guy’s a goy
