No, just be pleasant in conversation. Then when you ask her she will not want to lie and blurt everything out.

I think I was pleasant in conversation when walking with her...

The problem is getting her to confess the truth (about how she feels toward me) -- it took H a long time to finally say.

How did you get H to do that?

I just asked her if she had feelings for me.

That wasn't very tough. Why not try the same approach?

I will end up with egg on my face if she doesn't.

You do not ask until you are sure of her reply. Best done face to face.

Yes, I want to be more sure first. With H I was almost certain. With PJ, there is not a lot to work with but I can find out more.

If you get the answer that it was not a coincidence then you will not need to ask.

Yes, I know. I think she would be reluctant to say that though since that does seem like the kind of thing a stalker would say.

And if you find out she is interested what do you do?

Date her and find out more. I prefer not to have a 1652-email conversation about it like I did with H (that is the exact number).

It just might happen.

I have a feeling that won't happen. PJ is more social than H.

No, I meant dating her.

Who knows, it is difficult to say at this point. I need some signs to work with. H opened up to me emotionally almost immediately... if PJ does that then the probability of a date increases dramatically, I would say.

Same thing might happen with PJ. She might be a little less likely than H but you should be able to detect that.

Well, I have *something*, but it's still not enough for me. PJ sent me fairly lengthy e-mails which went in detail about her holidays, what she was doing for her work experience, etc., and she also did not reply when I said I wanted to tell IY something 'personal'. She also started shying away from me a bit (e.g. when knowing I was close by, she wouldn't make an attempt to talk to me) in the month of September since I did not reply to her last e-mail, which H did too. So there is something, but I need more than this.

Wait for the answer from the email you sent. You will know what to do when you get some answer.

Okay. I am also heading to school now (to talk to a few teachers about my uni application) so I may see PJ there.

Okay, good luck. See you tomorrow.

Got a reply:

"Hi,

Nah, I've always lived in the same house in _____.

PJ"

What to do from here...?

Is that house close to your route to school?

Not really, no.

When you saw her first were you close to school?
