Original Visitor's Question from a 13-20 year old Female
ok well, first off, i have at least five or six close guy friends that i hang out with all the time. we were going to a community service thing for school today, and right before, they started talking about who they liked. i found out on the bus ride there from guy 1 that he and guy 2 liked me (guy 1 said that he used to like me, but earlier he'd told guy 2 that he still liked me using his little code name or whatever) and then i found out that guy 3 likes me, and also guy 4.
guy 1 is very subtle about this (except for the whole teling me part)
guy 2 hits on me in a joking manner
guy 3 has been my best friend since first grade
and guy 4 isn't really a friend of mine anymore because he wanted to make out with me in a bathroom when he already knew i wasn't interested (but i'm still polite)
so my predicament/question is, what am i supposed to do because the halloween dance is next friday and i already know guy 1, 2, and 4 are planning on asking me
User Submitted Advice from a 13-20 year old Female
2 is a good choice
Here are your options:
2-Definite Option (8.5//10)
3-Definite Option (8.5//10)
4-Never an Option (.00001//10)
But since you aren't sure about 3 asking you to the dance, make it simpler and choose from 1 and 2.
1-Subtlety can mean fear or great admiration. In his case it means both.
2-Joking around is a sign of courage, bravery, and admiration towards girls. Or he could just be a jerk. Assuming that you know him well, he isn't a jerk and just finds that jokingly hitting on you is easier than hiding in seclusion.
To me, 2 sounds better, but you can pick whomever you want.
