    When you like someone, and you think they might like you too but you're not sure, how do you give out signals that are subtle enough so as not to make you look stupid if they don't??

    just tell them you're interested or ask if they'd like to meet up sometime and get a coffee/drink. It's easier just to come and and say it rather than making signals and whatever.

    Don't play the whole licking lips, touching hair charades - the people who write books on that are men and women with PhDs and the likes but little field experience - they're out to sell books.

    Go date. Simple as, just don't call it that.

    B! You quoted sonnet 116! Le magique numbre!

    Ok, so you're infatuated and you want to know if the feeling's mutual. Do the hair-nose-lips test.

    "Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,

    But bears it out even to the edge of doom."

    There's an old Chinese saying that I really like: "The temptation to quit will be greatest just before you are about to succeed."

    Keep at it Beth.

    i reckon... just spend a lot more time with them, touch them casually when you are with them, eye contact...and of course, low cut tops
    if you get bored with that then ask them somewhere casual, somewhere you could have gone as friends. failing that, you can always just kiss them (which is what i did...and we're still together over a year later).

    I honestly don't think subtlety is the way to go. Afterall, for all you know, they could be giving subtle signals right now that you're not getting.

    Be upfront with people. The worst they can do is say no thanks :|
    with signalling, if you dont get it back, or get bad signals back then you can keep it to yourself and not lose face.

    If you go and ask them out, they say no, youre gonna look as smooth as gravel.
    I spose Confidence is the key. Approach, start a chat. Dont go with too much hope and adgenda. Be real but confident

    Kiss them on the cheek. Then say "oops, missed". They'll be receptive.
