TOO SHY TO ASK HIM FOR A DATE.
Byline: THE STRAIGHT-TALKING PROBLEM PAGE email email@example.com life. Dear Coleen.
Dear Coleen I'M IN my second year at uni and there's a guy in some of my classes who I really like.
We don't speak to each other much but he's always lovely to me when we do chat, or he jokes around, which I find really entertaining. I think he's kind of showing off because he fancies me too, but he's never actually said anything.
I'm not the sort of person to take the initiative - I'm way too shy - but I'm not sure he will either. We have some friends in common, although we don't socialise much together.
Any ideas? Coleen says I THINK your mutual friends could be the best route in - could you tell one of them you like him kind of reaction you get? How about at least taking the initiative to organise a night out with your mutual friends? Connect with him on social media and, when you next chat, just try to take the conversation further - ask him about his classes, his hobbies and so that he's not interested in romance but really likes you as a friend. Sometimes you need to take a risk, even if it feels a bit daunting or embarrassing.
If it works out, great. If he just wants to be your mate, then at least you'll know and can move on with your life.
or drop a big hint and see what on. The worst that can happen is
