Cupid’s Advice:

Making the jump from ‘just friends’ to ‘more than friends’ is difficult, even without the added burden of confusion.  Here are a few ways to tell if your friend could be a potential mate:

1. Personal contact: Hugging your friends when greeting him and bidding him goodbye is commonplace, but more frequent contact may not be.  If he’s particularly ‘touchy-feely’, it may be because he has feelings for you.

2. You think about him: If you find yourself thinking about your ‘friend’ more frequently than your other friends, then you probably have some feelings for him.  Try to find a subtle way of finding out how he feels about you.

3. Ask him out: While indirect flirting may eventually serve its purpose, honesty really is the best policy.  Be upright and forthcoming about your feelings for him, and ask him straight out if he feels the same way.
