I'm in love with a friend who gives me mixed messages
Visitor's Question from a 16-20 year old Male
I've read all the information on how to get close to a friend etc and i've found that i actually already do a lot of these things. For example, we spend a lot of time alone and she described me as one of her 'closest friends'.
The problem is that she sends me confusing messages as to wether she likes me or not. E.g. she shared with me a very deep secret that she's told no one, she laughs at my jokes, she invites me out to cafes and to her house after to school (admittedly for work but we ended up messing around) and she said that she was about to go mad before she met me and was so glad to have done so.
Unfortunately, she also insults me frequetly and refuses (in a non-verbal way) to body contact above a pat on the shoulder. We used to have more body contact but after we became close friends this lessoned. She very rarely hugs any guys that aren't in a relationship but hugs her girlfriends all the time.
Does she like me?
And if so how should i introduce more body contact?
Since she has shared deep secrets with you, tell her you have something you want to share. Tell her you are worried because she won't let you touch her. See what she says.
It might not work out but maybe it will.
Good luck! George
