I broke up with my boyfriend of almost two years about four months ago. I am way over him, I was over him about three months before I broke up with him unfortunately I couldn't bring myself to do the breaking until right before his birthday. Anyways, right now I've been texting a guy that I was friends with in high school. I had a humongous crush on this guy in my sophomore year when I met him but one of us was always with someone else and he was a year older than me which was a big deal back then. After I started talking to him again all of those old feelings came back and for the first time I actually am excited about hearing from someone. Any chance to talk to him I can get I snatch it. Usually, I would have gotten bored by now but for some reason I haven't. That part kind of scares me, but that's not even my problem. The problem is that this guy is a marine. I haven't even met up with him since back in high school. We were going to get together right before he left for training back in December, but unfortunately the only day I could get back to my hometown to see him I ended up having to work. So I haven't seen this guy in about three years, we've been texting a lot and he's a marine thats not due back from training for another two months. Not to mention this training is in California while I live on the east coast. When we do talk I feel like I'm forcing conversation out of him. It's like I do all the talking and I have to keep coming up with questions to get him to say anything about what's going on with him. It's a bit frustrating. I don't know if he is just really busy with all of that marine stuff or if he isn't interested and he's just trying to be nice to me. Or maybe he just wants someone he can talk to once in a while. I have no idea what we are even doing, I mean I don't know if I was taking his initial advances the wrong way, like he was just trying to see how I was doing and when he first asked me to meet up with him again back in December wasn't a date, and he just wanted to ask how I was doing? Like I am seriously lost here. I have a tendency to drunk text him, he always responds and honestly flirts with me but he's just so hard to read and not like any of the other guys I've been with who tend to be way too clingy. Now I feel like the clingy one. I've flirted while not drunk as well and he's flirted back and we keep talking about the date that we're going to go on when he gets back. Seriously, in my opinion it feels like we're into each other but I don't know what to think or if it's even a good idea to be into him. I don't know anything about marines or what he would have to do after his California training. The most research I've done is look up what his specific designation is. I'm honestly just hoping someone can tell me what they think of this mess that I've created and if I am reading the right signals? If I should just give up? If I should even bother with him being a marine and all? Please help me!
