By Meghan - United States - Valparaiso
Today, after half a year of flirting back and forth, I went to a fancy party thrown by the guy I really like. He met me at the door and introduced me to everyone as, "the lovely Meghan". I thought I finally had a chance, until he introduced me to his girlfriend of five years. FML

We don't know if it is a serious relationship. However, the guy does come across as if he has a crush on OP. Why has he been flirting with OP for 6 months and has never mentioned his girlfriend? The only reason I can think of is because he likes OP as well.

I don't know. I've known a LOT of girls who think every guy (or at least, every guy they like) is into them. Some girls equate being nice with flirting. It's a common occurrence.


Sometimes, some people consider friendly banter as flirting, while the other person doesn't see it that way. Or maybe they have a flirtatious personality, where they engage in harmless flirting without realizing it. Given that he's been with his girlfriend for 5 years, and was willing to introduce OP to her, I'd say that any perceived flirting was unintentional, but rather, he saw OP as a potential good friend.

Are you sure you didn't see signs of him having a girlfriend? I think that someone either led you on, or you were a little too optimistic.

"flirting back and forth." well, if he was flirting with you, especially for half a year, i would say you do have a chance! i've read enough FMLs to know that "committed" relationships don't mean jack shit to a lot of people

At least you found out. I wonder how his gf feels aboit his little habit. OP you are actually lucky and can now move on to someone more deserving of you.

Just be careful you don't break any hearts haha. My ex used to flirt like that too and he saw it as harmless, but a lot of the girls he talked to ended up liking him because of it even though they knew he was taken, and he also ended up cheating on me eventually. I'm not saying that you would cheat, just be careful with those things and really make sure that it is harmless.
