I told him about my pet peeves and all was good until a few weeks ago.

You need to have a clear idea of what you consider a relationship to be. Some guys need time and there’s nothing wrong with giving a guy time.

Attempting to mold a man/relationship into being the relationship you want is a losing battle – progress is an illusion if you want something that he ultimately does not. Give him space to step up and be that man without manipulating, prodding, hinting, guilting or nagging him to be that man. No good relationship was ever built on the grounds of manipulation. But ultimately you won’t get the relationship you want unless you’re willing to pull the plug on a relationship that isn’t what you want.

How long are you willing to wait before you cut bait and move on?

You’ve tried talking, tried hinting, tried everything worth trying and then some but your guy is still acting like a human Band Aid.

In a later conversation, he said that he doesn't want us to consider eachother boyfriend and girlfriend (dictating what the other can and can't do). We get together every weekend and see eachother once per week, sometimes twice.

We've gone away for a weekend and have had a great time.

Should I dump him or give him more time to fall for me/have no hesitation about getting deep?

I don't want to date others, so that is not a solution.

I'll either dump him and move on or hang in there and wait a while longer.
