    Why can't you date?

    Just ask him innocently, no need to make a big deal out of it.

    Maybe let him know in a really subtle way, so he'll only know what you're on about if it was him... So perhaps say something that was in the letter in a by the by way and see if he goes all red.

    Maybe bring up valentines day cards ask if he got any or sent any this year. Gauge his reaction. Gentle flirting can't really do any harm. Or if you are feeling really confident you could just ask him outright.

    Heh. I got a Valentine's card (+ chocolates, in fact) this year. Weren't from the guy I liked - but that didn't matter as I'm now going out with him anyway.

    (Seriously though - just spend more time with him + see what happens)

    Wait wait wait. Muslims can't date? I have Muslims friends who go out with Muslim girls, are they being bad little Muslims?

    My advice is to tone down your religious-ness to the point where you're willing to date, the guy likes you, and your good friends too, so its worth giving it a shot.

    I also wouldn't suggest flirting with him if you know that its never going to get to a relationship stage. Be friendly by all means, but don't make him think he's got a chance if he hasn't.

    there's no point getting his hopes up if you won't let it go anywhere.
    just, forget it?

    It sounds to me (from what you've said) that you also like him...

    However, if you don't intend to go out with him, don't flirt with him - it'll build his hopes up, and could make it more awkward between you two. Just act as you normally would instead.

    I can't understand the problem here. Screw your beliefs, you being happy is more important, and it sounds to me like you would be much happier if you gave it a go, him not being a Muslim shouldn't be a reason to not date him. You've eliminated about 2.5 billion men doing that for following a silly rule that is outdated and totally alien to most people today.
