Does he like me?
Visitor's Question from a 21-30 year old Female
Last semester I met this cute guy in my theatre class. He started to talk to me all of a sudden, I had never paid attention to him. So, we got really close in terms of friendship, he shared with me a lot of personal stuff, like his health problems, etc. Besides that, whenever I misunderstand his jokes, he says stuff like "You know that I am kidding, I will not hurt you,I do not mean anything bad, etc." He also did tons of stupid stuff like singing a love song for me in front of common friends, stealing jokingly my possessions, etc. Once I was tired and acted kind of stupid to him and he was angry for a week and told me that he will wait for me to grow up. Still, during that week I got very sick and he acted like crazy. I almost fainted with dizziness in a sport activity and though he pretended still to be angry, he simply rushed to me and shouted "Are you OK? Oh my god, what happened?"
With the others he pretends to be very self-confident and not caring about anyone, but with me he is a completely different person, very shy, gentle and sincere, and he always tries to comfort me. Once when I was sad, he said "I do not know what to tell you." I said "You do not need to tell me anything." And he said " But I want to comfort you, to help you!"
He obviously wants to communicate with me, but when he tries, he gets confused. While with our common friends he acts perfectly normal. What should I do?
He is nervous and shy around you because he likes you.
Just keep the conversation going and eventually he will get over his shyness.
He sounds like a nice guy for you.
Good luck! George
