Due to the volume of responses I receive, I am unable to...um, not really. I'm sure I'll have more than enough time to mull over your question.

Today's Column: More boy problems.


Dear Chloe,

There is this boy Kirk, I like him a lot. I think that he used to be feelin' me but I don't think he does any more because I called him and asked him whom he liked. When I asked he was like "is that all you called for" and I felt dumb. After that call he stopped talking to me and following me and saying "Hi," and stuff. Do you think he likes me and if he doesn't is it my fault?




Dear Chantelle,

It sounded like he used to like you, but apparently that phone call turned him off. I really don't blame him, either.

I can't speak for all guys because I'm not one, but I don't think they're attracted to silliness. You could try apologizing for wasting his time, or you could write this mistake off as a lesson learned.


Dear Chloe,

Well, I liked this guy for six years and I never really had the guts to tell him cause I didn't want to be rejected. I told him two years ago but he said he was going out with another girl and he told me why didn't I tell him earlier? So now I still like him, and he broke up with the other girl. Should I tell him how I truly feel?




Dear White,

Since he already knows how you feel, maybe you could just gently remind him that you're still interested. I wouldn't be all in his face about it. If he doesn't follow up, please, for heaven's sake, move on.


Dear Chloe,

I really like this guy, but he has a girlfriend that doesn't like me. I think he likes me but how do I tell if he does.




Dear jel,

Check out the Squirtonline survey, How To Tell If Someone Likes You.

I'm not going to encourage this because poaching is not cool. I'm totally against it and I wish you would find someone else who doesn't have a girlfriend. What goes around comes around.


Dear Chloe,

There is this guy I reeeaaally like and I think he likes me but I am not sure. He always laughs at the things I say and we always go into the hot tub together and go swimming...But, I want to ask him if he likes me and he is sort of shy. So, should I come up and ask him or should I tell him first that I like him so it will make him more comfortable with saying he likes me? And, how do I make a move on him because he is the shy type and I want to go out with him. Thanks.




Dear Regina,

Hmmm. I thought going to the hot tub together was a "move." I mean, that's pretty intimate, isn't it?

I don't think you should ask him if he likes you. That kinda puts him on the spot, and shy people hate that.

Why don't you just ask him out? I'm not exactly sure what you're waiting for, what with the hot tub hijinks and all.


Dear Chloe,

I've been dating this guy for about five months and I love him a lot...but he flirts and I do, too... but how can I stop doing that...and how can I show my boyfriend that I care about him and love him...We go to the same school and live together now with my family....can you help me, please?




Dear Luisa,

If you want to stop flirting, stop flirting. It's not like you need a twelve step program. Firting is not bad in itself, but it's a little rude to do it front of your boyfriend, and vice versa.

Why don't you tell your boyfriend what you told me? That's a start. Communication makes or breaks a relationship.

You can show him you love him by being considerate and respectful. By listening and sharing. By being affectionate. By spending time with him. It's no big thing. I believe in the Golden Rule - treat others as you wish to be treated.

Hugs and kisses,
