I had a supervision yesterday, and I am now convinced that the man doesn't like me. I don't know what I've done to evoke such feelings from him, but it's plain to see that he dislikes me. I decided to just let it wash over, but now it's really bothering me. Does anyone else have unfavourable responses in their supervisions? It seems as though he's really uncomfortable around me, and I can't figure out why. One of my friends actually suggested that he fancies me, and hence the uncomfortable behaviour. Is this possible? I'd much rather entertain that notion than think that he despises me! I'd love some feedback on this.
Well, not knowing what he does in particular, difficult to say. However, on the fancying not, being a guy, I can tell you that we are known to act uncomfortable around people that we are attracted to, and it can often appear as dislike. Tell us what he does, and we can try to work it out.
Bellaz, I can tell you that when I like someone, for instance, I have a tendency to act distant and avoid eye contact altogether. People that I've fancied in the past, (after finding out) have often said that they never realised and thought quite the opposite!
It could be that he is attracted to you and is uncomfortable about his feelings because of other factors involved (his position in the department,has a partner, etc) I'm just putting the attraction hypothesis forward as a possibility. You never know, and it could be that you'll never find out. I wouldn't know how to resolve this. I guess you can't just come out and say: "Hey, guy! Do you hate me or what?!"
