I Don’t Want to Scare Him Off
Dear ASK REAL GUYS: How can I let a guy know that I am interested in him without freaking him out? My crush has had people stalk him in the past – to the point of needing restraining orders – and I don’t want him to think I am like that. I just want to see if he thinks it might be fun.
Matt Landsberg: There’s no reason someone will think you’re a stalker if you’re not acting like one. Casually approach him (or e-mail/call him) and say that you would like to go out sometime. If he is interested, he will respond in a way that is pretty clear. If he’s distant or relatively unresponsive, then you should focus elsewhere.
