"The most wonderful of all things in life, I believe, is the discovery of another human being with whom one's relationship has a glowing depth, beauty, and joy as the years increase. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvelous thing, it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionately wishing for it. It is a sort of Divine accident."
            ~Sir Hugh Walpoe

He loves me, he loves me not...


If you just can't figure out if he's interested or not, try one of these ploys to find out...

Not knowing is really half the fun, but if the suspense is just killing you, here are four simple experiments that will have a guy showing his true colors in no time:

1. Hand him the date on a silver platter. Next time you're hanging out with "Mr. Maybe", wait for a lull in the conversation, then say something like: "You know, I'm dying to (insert activity of your choice), but I can't get any of my friends to go." Then look him right in the eyes with your best happily mystified expression. If the evening ends and he hasn't asked you out, time to forget him and move on.

2. Invite him along. If you and this fella are out with a group, talk to a couple of your friends about making a change of location mid-evening, then ask him along. If he demurs, he's not interested. (You can also do this without the friends… if he says yes, then great! It's just you and him ...)

3. Give him the digits. This won't work in every situation, but if, for instance, you're taking a class with a guy who seems interested, leave behind something of little or of no value, a spiral notebook say, with your name and phone number in it. If he doesn't call, or if he does and then only returns your property, you'll know he's not into you.

4. Tell him! The trick to this one is tone of voice. At some point in the conversation (only once), after he's said something particularly charming, funny or touching, respond generally ("That's amazing ...") and then say "You know, I like you" in the same tone of voice you'd use to say "I like your shirt." Then drop it. You've lost no face and now he has all the information he needs. If he doesn't use it, there's your answer.
