Recently I started hanging out with this guy I really like. Whenever we are in school, he ignores me. But outside of school he is a complete gentleman and apologizes for the way he acts. I often wonder if he really cares for me. I really like him and I was thinking about asking him out. But I don't know if I should because of the way he treats me. What do you think?
I would talk to this guy and find out what he thinks about you. Ask him when he's alone. I've found that you are more likely to get an honest answer if you ask him when he's by himself. Ask him if he really does want to be friends with you and why he treats you like he does.
As for asking him out, wait until you know if he even wants to be friends with you first. If he doesn't want a friendship with you, there are other guys you will eventually like even more than you like him.
I know that's not what you want to hear and I know it hurts when you are rejected, but it's the truth.
If he's just blowing you off for some reason, he was never worth it.
