Question - (15 December 2015) 4 Answers - (Newest, 16 December 2015)
A female United Kingdom age 18-21, anonymous writes:

I'm 17, and I've never had a boyfriend or girlfriend. This doesn't bother me in the slightest because I'm not an innately sexual person or someone who displays feelings well.

I've never asked out anybody that I've really fancied for fear of rejection.

There's a boy at college with me and I like him a lot, and he acts like he likes me too. He sits very close to me so our legs and arms are always touching, hints at liking me, compliments me endlessly, touches me in conversation at any given opportunity and texts me all the time.

I feel like all signs point to him liking me as well but I'm too reluctant be believe it in case he's just being REALLY friendly. I guess my question here is: what are signs that someone likes you?

sweetheart, if this boy has managed to sit next to you at college with arm and legs touching and compliment you endlessly and also get hold of your number to text you i think you can safely say he likes you.

But you dont have to worry about that.

This lad is clearly quite capable of doing things in his own way and he knows one day that he will just casually suggest going out to some venue together.

The thing is thaat he doesnt expect you to suddenly turn into a sex kitten giving it out , i think he is checking out the speed of the friendship to see if you are reliable.

Boys get burned too and he is very carefully making sure that their is a good element of friendship going on before he brings it round to dating.

You have other people in your life and so does he.

If you let things progress slowly i would expect that he might get round to asking you out but slow is better for a longer lasting relationship that could lead to a future promise.

Stay cautious until you know a lot about the boy.

You gave a long list of things he does, but you're reluctant?

So exactly what does he have to do, write it across the side of building? He's trying to take an easy approach, since he knows you're shy. The problem with shy people is, you have to make a fool of yourself to show you like them. And for all the trouble, they shy away.

In order to find out if someone likes you; you have to let them know you like them back. He texts you all the time, and touches you, pays you compliments, etc... etc, etc.

Ask him why is he always trying to be nice to you? If he tells you it's because he likes you, then what are you going to say or do? What does it matter knowing he likes you, if you don't let him know you're happy he likes you?

Now figure it out.

You've said a bunch of things that strongly suggest he likes you. Can you think of a reason he'd be paying so much positive attention to you if he wasn't interested? Guys fear rejection, too, so it often takes us a little while to get our confidence up to ask you out. I hope you are giving him positive response...he may want to be very sure that you'll go out with him before he asks you to do so.

aunt honesty agony auntThe biggest sign is the gut feeling that you have in your stomach. All the basic signs are there that he likes you, now you just need to show him signs that you like him and hopefully the future will hold good things.
