Long story short :
I really like this guy [Chris, hence the screen name] and want him to be my boyfriend. i don't know if he's interested in me and i can't just right up ask him. But how do i go about finding out if he likes me?

Am i in love with boys?
Or in love with being in love?

Baby steps, gal. Baby steps.

A committed relationship comes AFTER you're with someone for a while, know you're BOTH intersted in that, talk about what you want, etc.

So, start small: how about just spending some time together, asking him out on a date or to hang out with a group of friends?

(And per your signature question? You chose a handle, a name for YOUR identity, for yourself, that is al about somebody else. I think that tells you all you need to know about maybe being a bit too concerned with being in love, eh?)

hah hah on your comment about my signature. I didn't mean for it to be an actual question, and ILChris is the first thing that popped into my head. Niether were meant to be analized...

Thanks for your advice on my actual question, though. I'll ask him [and a couple other friends] to go bowling or skating? Or through a no reason party? I'll think of something. Thanks for giving my brain a kick-start.

I think all of those are great ideas. Start with skating and then move up to a party, that's what i would do. I'm glad to see that your on the right track already. It shows strength.

Good luck girly!
