I don’t really have any guy friends, and I think I know why. Whenever I hang out with a guy and we seem to start getting to be friends I automatically think they like me romantically. I know— it’s so vain!
Anyway, I feel weird even posting this, but how do I stop thinking this? I really like having guy friends and I don’t want to assume such silly things all the time.

Hey there lovely lady. 😀
Something that might help more is, if they are Christian, thinking of them as brothers in Christ. Because then, if you have thoughts about liking them/them liking you, then any hesitance you feel is not just your brain saying “hey, this is just a friend”, it’s conviction telling you “hey, this is your brother in Christ”–and that stronger conviction may make it easier to get into the right mindset.
So in conclusion, not totally sure what to tell you, just do your best (maybe try the brother-in-Christ-mindset approach), and don’t beat yourself up about it; you’re not the worst, it’s just an odd, silly girl thing that many of us experience and occasionally battle. 😉 If you ever need to talk more, or even vent, find me here or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org). 🙂
