WHAT can I do to let this guy know I'm interested?

Aside from asking him out myself. I know he's very shy and has been burned BADLY in the past. What can I do to let him know I am interested? Tips, suggestions? I think I'm gonna have my work cut out for me with this guy.

  • My thoughts.

    If you do not want to just tell him how you feel or flat out ask him out.
    Then honestly, the chances of someone like the person you are describing just catching hints and innuendos is probably unlikely.. Someone who is skiddish and has been burned, is less likely to just pick up those things, because they are not actively looking for those in their interactions with someone. The more closed in a person is, the more they have been hurt, in most cases the more upfront/open and honest you need to be with them.

    So, with all that I personally, would let this person know how I'm feeling, where I stand, and what I'm interested in. That way we both have an honest clear idea where we both stood, and if there is a possibility of a relationship, just casual dating, just friendship..etc. is.

    Good luck.. However you choose to approach him/the situation.

  • Oh my, you sound like me but hears how it went with me. I was interested, I told him, he seemed interested but wasn't. I found that out 'after' I asked him out. Needless to say that wasn't a fairytale ending but oh well.
