Dear Betty,

How can you tell if a guy really likes you?


Dear Reader,

Do you maybe like this guy? Then take a risk and invite him to do an activity with you or with a group of friends.  It is a little bit scary, because what if he rejects your invitation. Just remember your invitation is being rejected and not you.  Relationships are scary because you could get your feelings hurt if the other person rejects you. In the words of a famous flirting coach, Fran Greene, if someone does reject your invitation, they are in fact giving you a gift; the gift of time. Therefore, you will not have to waste your precious time thinking about asking that person to go out with you any longer. You can move on to try again with someone else.  For more advice on relationships and dating, check out the GO Ask Alice! website at www.goaskalice.columbia.edu.
