Freud says... Chances are he likes you!
Based on your answers, Freud believes there is a high probability this guy is attracted to you.
Freud’s theory of internalization explains how when we care a lot about someone they become part of us.
This guy clearly cares about you and is starting to consider getting more romantically involved.
Part of this – as Freud noted – is definitely sexual.
The thing is that your situation depends on whether this guy managed to transition from the childhood sexual phase and adopt a healthy adult approach to tenderness and sex.
Freud commonly dealt with patients where sex and attraction were linked to shame and guilt.
The good news is that this guy is headed more in a direction of not just wanting sex from you. According to Freud, you seem to represent both a sexually and personally attractive option for him.
I know that might sound a bit…clinical, and you’re not here to be a psychologist. But before you get spooked let me be clear:
In Freud-speak it means he’s really into you!
That’s the good news.
The bad news is that there’s something holding him back from going all in.
If your guy is like millions of other humans around the world then he has issues from childhood and those who helped raise him. This creates a kind of love roadmap that guides him through life.
For this reason, your guy may not even know himself whether he likes you or not. As Freud taught us, our subconscious contains many hidden monsters, and even strong attraction can contain many elements of uncertainty and even resistance.
This is why it’s important to understand what he really wants from a relationship with you.
