Yesterday, I was talking with the guy that I've been sort of dating for a little while about "us." We've been friends for a while, dated for about a month in April, then he left for three months...now we're in the same town but he's kind of...being a ladies man now.... Anywho, we were talking about our relationship in general and he randomly came out saying that he loves me and that dating me would require him to put his entire soul into our relationship and that he wasn't ready for that serious of a commitment. He then added that when he WAS ready for the big commitment (aka marriage...according to him) he knew that the only person he'd want to be with was me. All right, well body language and tone all seemed like he was being honest but when I told my roommates about our conversation they all said he was lying and it was all bull. Can a guy ever say he's not ready for a serious relationship and mean it? Or are my roomies right and is this all a farce?

I'd be more inclined to believe your feelings over this than your roommates ... You know this guy and you were there when the conversation went on. It IS entirely possible that he's just not ready for a committment right now, just like he said.
