He already knows you’re not going to go out with other guys.
He already knows you have decided to be exclusive to him.
He feels secure and he feels the current relationship dynamic is secure.
This is around the time where things are starting to get comfortable: You make plans regularly, you’re in contact more frequently and maybe it even seems a relationship seems just around the corner. What will determine if you actually If you have a guy who is not open to getting into a relationship with you, a scenario like this might play out: You might start getting really excited by this prospect that you and this guy will have a relationship, but this particular guy has specifically said he doesn’t want a relationship.
The fear is rooted in insecurities: What if they don’t like me as much as I like them?
For instance, if a guy says something like “I like you so much” or whatever during the early phases, he very well might mean it, but he also wants to see how you’ll react.
Specifically, he’s checking to see if you’ll say that you feel the same way.
that doesn’t mean he’ll lose interest in you, but if he already had some insecurities about whether or not you are into him, this will stir up his insecurities further and he’ll keep doing and trying things to “make you like him” so he can feel secure. So, for starters, I would say that the more insecure he is about you liking him, the more of this stuff he’s going to say until he’s convinced that you really like him a lot.
Once he believes that you really like him, it’s at that point he’ll relax and start being himself.
When a guy says things like, ‘I’ve never liked a girl so much after only a few dates’ or he texts you saying he misses you when you barely know each other, he’s not making some kind of grand, everlasting declaration that he’ll always feel this way.
