Question: Dear Luise: I’m 19 years old and I like a 26 year-old guy. We met via my college. He is a high school teacher and he mainstreams autistic kids in my college. We are friends but we both are attracted to each other. What should I do? Should I show him that I’m available if he wants to take our relationship farther or just give up? I really like him and I think our current situation is really bothering him because he doesn’t really know how I feel about him. I think he doesn’t know what to do? M.
Answer: Dear M.: It’s hard to believe the guy is that shy. I doubt very much that he doesn’t know what to do, if he has gone all through college and is teaching.
However, you don’t have to sit around and wait for him to make the first move unless you want to. Ask him out and see what happens. Blessings, Luise
