I had been dating a guy for a while and suspected that he was getting erections quite frequently when we were together (just going to see a movie, taking a walk together, or having dinner). The last time I saw him it was obvious and he seemed really embarrassed over it. Since then he never wanted to see me again, but I know that he really liked me more than just a friend. I was wondering if getting erections as often as he did would prevent a guy from being around the girl he likes.

Yes, it sounds like he might have been embarrassed about it. If you are comfortable enough, you might have to come up with the courage to confront him about the subject, and explain to him that you are okay with it. Or perhaps you can suggest this site to him and he can ask any questions he has and read some of the articles for more information. This may make him feel more comfortable.

(Blue Koi, I edited out the first part of your post. If you suspect a user is posting under a new name/otherwise breaking the rules in the future, you can notify a mod with the report feature. This sort of enforcement is best left to us, as we have the information to confirm things like this without risking making a rule-abiding poster feel unwelcome if they've done nothing wrong. [Smile] )

Well, there could be many different reasons why he didn't want to continue the relationship. It could be some embarrassment about having erections (though erections can happen at very random times, they're not always caused by sexual stimulus), or it could be because he didn't want a relationship at this point in time, or it could be for a completely different reason. If you really want to know why he chose to no longer see you, then you would have to ask him.
