I seem to have gotten myself in a pickle. This guy and I have known each other since we were kids (we were more like friends then). Not that close, but in contact. Over a year or so the topic has come up for us to hook up. I asked once but he never got back to me and I left it. He once again messaged a short while back and asked but I said no (as I was getting over someone and was not emotionally equipped for a hook up).
A few months later I asked him but we never got back with each other to go through with it. So he messaged again, I agreed, and we went on to making details like when and where.
But here's the thing, we don't talk. At all. It's just awkward. I've never been in a situation like this but I find it weird hooking up with a guy who I just don't talk to other than making the arrangement to do so. Which is kind of a turn off.
I think I assume we were friends with benefits, but maybe this is a booty call kind of thing. Is there a difference?
Is my thinking wrong? Or is there supposed to be some sort of communication (not something emotional or romantic)?
