Original Visitor's Question from a 21-30 year old Male
Ok there is this girl i like a lot, and we've been pretty good friends for a while now and i would sometimes get the feeling she likes me too. but she has been talking to this other guy now and she seems to really like him(she's even thinking about dating him) and one or two times before when i tried to talk to her she would ignore me or barely say anything and walk away to talk to the other guy. and because of this i have stopped trying to talk to her(for about a week or so) so i can stop having these thoughts but it's not really working. the reason i'm doing this is because i recieved some advice, they told me if she starts taking you for granted then stop talking to her and she will come to you and it knid of worked she tried talking to me a couple of times but these last two days she has not said a thing to me. so what should i do? am i doing the right thing? i really do like her . please help. thanks

Well i'm not sure but I think shes trying to make you jealous. Maybe, I haven't really been through a real problem like this.For right now just try saying hi to her.
Then start little conversations like how was your day. But try talking to her when no one else is around espicially that guy who she likes. You say you think she likes you. So try by getting help of her friends. Ask them a question. If you don't talk to her friends much than maybe try flirting with with her. Compliment her. You hair looks pretty. Or ask about school, did you finish that assignment? Or this class is boring don't you think so? Maybe she will start talking for right now do little things. Don't talk to her to much but talk. After a month or so she will eventually have to het tired of that guy but she will still have you. Then once you know she doesn't like that guy anymore ask her if she wants to go to a movie as friends then your friendship will move foward and soon ya'll might start going out. Sorry if it don't work.
