GIRL TALK: Mixed Signals
My crush and I are kinda friends, but I like him as more than a friend. Yesterday we were talking on MSN messenger, and out of nowhere he asked if I had a crush on him. I suck at lying so I told the truth, and after I told him he said he had to get offline without saying anything about me liking him. Here are my questions:
1) Do you have any ideas about why he asked me about it in the first place?
2) What if it gets awkward to talk to him and it ruins our friendship?
Sounds like this guy had an inkling that you might like him and wanted to find out for himself. If he wasn’t interested in you as well, he probably wouldn’t have taken the time to ask. He most likely didn’t think his plan through and didn’t know what to say back once you fessed up to your crush, explaining the quick sign off. The ball is in his court now – he has the info, so he needs to decide what to do with it. Don’t push him for more deets. If he is crushin’ back, he’ll probably let you know soon. Meanwhile, just keep on being friends and act like you normally do with him. Things should either smooth over or evolve into a better friendship/relationship.
