Thread Topic: I need some dating advice
Ok, so I'm 16 and in yr 11. There's this guy I like at my school and recently I've been getting the feeling that he likes me too. I'd noticed that he'd been extra nice recently, which I was quite happy with. We had some big exams a couple weeks ago and he walked in late. The thing was that since I was sitting right next to the door, the first thing he saw was me and he cracked into a huge smile. Then, during the exam, every time I turned around he was watching me and cracked another huge smile when I looked at him. When the test finished I was talking to him about a funny almost-coincidence in the seating arrangement and he was like "Oh really? i didn't notice where they were sitting." and i said how mean that was and then he went all quiet and said something like "all i saw was you."
So about a week ago our group of friends went out to dinner and me and two other guys got there first so we grabbed the table. This guy was the next person to show up. The three of us were already standing around the table having just got there. he walks straight up and stands as close as possible to me (this was a table for 16 people so he had a huge choice of seats). Then as other people arrived they took their seats around us four and yada yada yada. One of my friends "Who yes is a girl and knows how i feel about this guy) walked in looked at the two of us cracked a smile whilst I whispered "You say anything about who's sitting next to me and I swear..." to which she replied that she was going to talk to him that night, to which i further threatened her.
Sooo, she spoke to him. She hasn't given me the exact details of what was said but she told me that he said he liked me too. Exactly 3 days ago I thought I'd just text him and say "hi", see how he was going and all that. He hasn't replied and now I'm thinking that maybe he doesn't like me after all.
Do you think I'm overreacting?
p.s. sorry for the really long explanation :)
ange NoviceIt appears he is very interested in you. He also seems really sweet and eager to get to know you more. If he grins when he sees you and dives at the oppurtunity to sit next to you and stand extremely close he must feel a real connection and feel like himself when he's around you.
If he hasn't replied to your text it's not a massive drama and you shouln't immediantly think he doesn't like you. He may be out of credit, hasn't checked his phone or rather speek to you face to face. There are many reasons for him to not reply and only few pointing towards no interest in you. It is likely he hates talking and texting on the phone.
Hope that helps a little and I wish you the best of luck! :D
Thank you thank you so much! :D
ok i know i'm seeming a little paranoid, but you've just put my mind at ease. thank you sooo much. Jeez you should take over an advice forum :)
again thank you so much
Kitty_Cat NewbieOohhh, kitten love. :3 he may just be shy, give him time.
DragonRider294: You're most welcome. You are far from the only girl who gets paranoid when a guy doesn't reply to your text immediantly. It doesn't help when you happen to REALLY like them and get your hopes up.
Tons of girls freak about this kind of situation so not to worry.
Stay calm, relax and take a big breath of FRESH air (outside), not inside huddled over your phone waiting for a reply.
Good luck! :D
haha! the fresh air thing! ok, i'll take that advice. if you dont mind checking back every now and then incase something happens, i'll post it on here. especially next week when we all go back to school for the next term. thanks :D
Ambers Only Love NewbieWow... Another ancient user.. This is so odd.
coolme3 Seniorawh cute, yeah I think he likes you :3 and I guess ...just what ange said haha. But yeah he might not like texting or something, like my boyfriend NEVER texts me back. which still kinda bugs me but I know its not cuz he doesnt like me haha. So dont worry about that though, the in-person stuff is how you tell anyways.
DragonRider294: Sure! I'll be on and happy to help in any way I can! :D
ok a small update that may include a setback.
well first, today was the birthday of the girl he used to like. so i decided to tease him a little and tell him to go sing her happy birthday and give her a big hug. he declined so i said "what's wrong, don't you like her?"
and he said "no, i'm over her. I've moved on to better things."
and i answered with "Who could possibly catch your eye?"
so then in class today i turned to him and asked "so who is this new girl you like?"
he said "I'm not after anyone."
so i said "good, cos no one's good enough for you. you're too nice."
i think i may have screwed that one up.
so i got back an exam today and didn't do so well, so, obviously i didn't want anyone to know my mark. then someone told this guy who always annoys me my bad mark (he's not in my class so he couldn't have heard me say it or seen my paper), so i didn't hear the end of that. And the only person who knew my mark was this guy i like, since i chose to only tell him. when i thought that he'd told this kid i was so ticked off that i got really mad, freaked out and said i wasn't going to speak to him again. but i felt guilty, so i later apologised.
Not to worry. That doesn't mean he doesn't like you. He probably has no self control and felt like he need to tell someone else your test mark. I get that's it's annoying but most guys are :P
I think he may have his eyes on you! That could be why he didn't answer the question. He was embaressed!
About yelling at him, I completely understand. It is super annoying when someone does that. It's good you apoligised. That lets him know you care about him :)
absol heart Noviceprobably just shy. :3
redawn Newbielol it doesn't have to be complicated. if you like him, go for him.
A girl asked me out once by asking me if I was ever planning on asking her out. which I thought was pretty clever :P maybe you should do that.
that girl is a genius! i like her way of thinking! :P
