A female United Kingdom age 22-25, anonymous writes:

i am 15 and i have fancied a boy for two years now and i really love him, we are good mates, and he nos that i love him but he asks me if i do which i dont really like because i think that he is taking advantage of me because he knows i like him, its weird becaus he gives me mixed signs so i am very confused about our relationship, i had the chance to meet him but i turned him down because i was embaresses but i regret it now, he often lips to me that he loves me and i just shake my head because i know he doesnt, he always flirts with me and gets jelous when i flirt with other boys, i have told him how i feel and i want to know how he feels , do you think that this guy likes me ? and have you got any tips on how i can find out how he feels because i have asked im if he thinks that we will ever have a chance and he said it depends what the future holds! its hard for me because i really love him. please give me some advice thank you x

well i honestly dont know if he likes you, but it sounds like a possiablity that he does like you, i would just keep an eye on him, ask him if he's moving any time soon, bc i like this boy and i've known him for two years, he knows i like him and now he is moving. im going to miss him, ok so dont have him if he's moving, im sorry i just am going to miss the boy i like bc he is the first boy i have ever liked, or found ou t i really liked him, just keep an eye on him as try, if he trys to get close to you when your in a groub, then its possible he likes you, if you like him back and he gets close to you stay in the same place dont move away, if you like him and stay in the same spot he may try to hold your hand, i hope you have a good time, and if you lke him, just hope he likes you back, its a possiblity he does like you.

I had this trouble not that long ago with a boy.

All you have to do is just play it cool for a while and then when you think that YOU are ready you ask him.Dont let anyone push you into doing it when you are not ready.

You can tell if he likes you but.The way that i knew was that he would always cuddle me and give me little kisses on the the side of the face.he would always grip my hand.

DOES THIS BOY DO THAT WITH YOU.

Just take a bit at a time.If he trys to push you in to doing anything that you do not want to do all you have to say is that your not ready for that kind of thing,and if he really likes then he will wait.And if he is an older boy then be very careful and wathch what you are doing.

i have the same thing happenin to me too! but instead of the boy teasing me it is all of me friends and all of his friends! we have never really talked! i think u should talk to him and ask him some questions and the replies to the questions could help u to see if he really likes u or if he is just trying to make u feel good.

OMG! u shouldn't turn this guy down!!! If you say you love him back, it will actually prove that your not weak with love and your brave enough to actually show your emotions...

Be yourself, and most definately NEVER play 'hard to get'.. It makes the guy think you don't really care about this dude..

One more tip:- ask him out... 98% of gals in my school have when they are in a situation like this... trust me... it will work!

hya em i think this guy has very mixed emotions about you its like a flavour of ice cream sometimes you realy fancy vanilla then the other day you hate it. i think that 90% of this freindship could turn to something more loveable. if he tells u he loves you then ask him to look you in the eyes and tell it to your face. but girl i think you should sit down and talk to him and if he just laughs all the way through it then it is a big no no. good luck

A female reader, anonymous, writes (9 January 2008):

i had the same situation like.. a month ago

it ended badly

i guess its cos i didnt feel the same way about the guy as he did about me; he actually loved me, or so he says

but i never rly liked him as much as that, of course i liked him, otherwise i wouldnt've been with him, but i never liked him so much that i needed him like he needed me

tbh, from what you've said, i think this guy either rly likes you (& saying that he loves you to get you to get with him) or that he actually does love you, you just never know with boys, so yeah the best thing for you to do, is just ask. what've you got to loose?

also, the reason for him getting jelous of you flirting with other boys is cos he is being serious when he flirts with you, but he actually thinks you are being serious when you flirt with the other boys, see boys are bit dumb like that haha well some of them!

tbh the did the best thing turning him down, play a little hard to get! which is pretty easy for me to say, but not so easy for you to do if you've loved him for like 2 years

but rly, the treat them mean keep em method has always worked for me (:

so baisically what i'm saying is, do the opposite to what he wants, so flirt with other boys, & make out its not a big deal etc etc but dont do it so much that you'll repel him, just do it enough to have him eating out of your hand haha

A female reader, anonymous, writes (2 January 2008):

well...he might love you...you just have to see if he shows it by the things he does. He might hug you, hold your hands at times, look at you straight in the eyes, etc. Try to read his body language. another way is to talk to him about HIS feelings..not yours since he already knows you like/love him. Put things clear and tell him you don't want to wonder anymore...tell him that you need to know for sure how he feels towards you. Try not to be all "smiley" while you ask him...it might seem like you're not taking the situation seriously...

GOOD LUCK ;)

Hey ^.^

I'm really glad I'm not the only one yearning my friend, hehe... I'm actually only 13, but I know how boys act, I'm friends with alot of them. (.)

Anyway, for starters, boys do NOT lip that kind of thing without meaning it! Especially not to their best mates...

Also, we girls have this terrible tendancy to think that if a boy likes us, he will come to us first. WRONG! Inside, all boys are really shy, so why don't you find a moment alone, and ask him how he feels about you...

good luck!! xox

A female reader, anonymous, writes (5 October 2007):

You can tell if a boy likes you through first, body language and second, what he says. If he raises his eyebrows every time he sees you or breaks out in a smile whenever you smile, you've got something. Right now you're stuck in the missed opportunity-let's be great friends part. Don't openly chase him or ask him about where you guys stand. He needs to feel like he's chasing you. Make small moments of increasing affection. But your head on his shoulder and give him lots of hugs. Add a bit of jealousy and flirt with guys in front him, but at the end of it all-joke how he's the best.

BTW if he's hung around you this long, he is attracted to you. It's all about getting his mind into having you as his girlfriend. Remember its him that is supposed to want you. Give him opportunities. If you're still unsure, suck it up and ask outright if he's dating anyone. Tell him he should date you. =]

Just tell him already. He likes you, so don't be a chicken. I know that sounds a little bit offensive, but you two like each other. So take that chance, or you might never see of what could've happened if you'd told him already.

Yes! I think this guy is really into you!!! He lipped to you I love you. If the guy I loved did that to me I would really be happy. Plus he is actually showing you some minor signs like getting jealous when you flirt around other guys! He loves you he is just scared to tell you he does not know youll reply to him. TELL HIM HOW YOU FEEL. Stop playing games.

I think that this boy definately fancies you. I think he might just be a little unsure if you feel the same way! I mean, he wouldn't have lipped to you, @I love you@ if he didn't mean it! I think you should go ahead and tell him how you feel it sounds like that is going to be a good relationship!

Well i've been in a simalar situation before

i liked a boy for at least 2 years or more

He was one dem bad boy types though and he wud give me wierd signs

one day he would be moody with me and didnt want to know me

the next he wanted to meet me

which left me in a confused situation

But i never found out whether dis boy actually liked me but oh wel im over him nw

i do think this boy likes you as he's been makin it luk obvious just by when u sed dat wen u flirt wiv other boyz he gets jelous jus by readin dat its obvious

plenty ov boyz used 2 get jelous wen i flirted wiv other boyz den moan at me later and would ask me out nt long after

talk to him on his own

dont pressure him into telling you how he feels though

just ask how he feels about you

whether you are goin 2 av a future

and you tellin ow yu feel and what you think and why you like him and he wil feel more comfortable if you tell him how u feel and what you think about both ov you two gettin together and what you think about him

Anywayz i hope my advise helped seens as ive been in situations like this before

Just ask him out. After all you regret it when you turned him down when he asked you to meet him so this should make up for it. And don't worry about rejection. All he can say is a simple yes or no.

Here is a method to get them to reveal any passions etc. If you know one of their best friends, ask them to ask the person you like whether they like yourselve. This is a good place to start.

Another method, JUST PLUCK UP COURAGE AND ASK THEM OUT! Seriously, you need to have courage to ask them regarding your and their feelings. I myself am quite shy but I recently plucked up courage (with support from friends) to ask the most beautiful girl out. Once you get over the shyness, try the hardest to continue to come out of your shell and be more open!

Hope either of the methods above work for you!

Regards and best wishes,

AJ.
