ASK REAL GUYS
Dear ASK REAL GUYS: There is a guy at school who has been flirting with me since August, and I have been flirting back. My friends and roommate keep saying how much he is into me, but I want to hear it from a man. The guy I like recently asked for my phone number, so he could be the first to wish me a happy birthday this Monday. Does he really fancy me, or is he just acting like he does to make me feel better (I got out of a relationship not too long ago)?
Steven: These generally seem like indicators of interest. If you like him, be receptive and indicate some interest back. Since you are just getting out of a relationship, make sure you are not projecting any unresolved leftover issues on this new possibility. After all, you do not want him to wrongly interpret this to mean your lack of interest. Be honest with him and make sure you develop a friendship at the core.
