I don't know when that will be, though. I only have what few observations I have made, but they could mean nothing at all.

Stay close and more clues will be provided.

I only get to see her once a week, for about 15 minutes...

That is more than enough if it is meant to be. Also, you would have to create more opportunities.

I have her UCL e-mail, but not her private one. I have her mobile number too. But what if I make a move on her and she reports me or something?

She reports you for what? What kind of moves do you make? I mean, grabbing her in a headlock and slamming her noggin into a brickwall is certainly out.

Inappropriate behaviour towards a UCL mentor?

That is what I mean. Unless you do things like that who is going to report you?

Listen, women want to get noticed. They do not want to be mauled of course. Show good manners but be firm and take charge.

I have been trying to take charge. I haven't been flirting, just little things -- like when she looks my way I make sure to look her in the eyes and hold her gaze (she usually looks at me a little longer when I do that). She couldn't remember some things about integration so I helped her -- almost like I am her partner in mentoring the group. It's a difficult setting to take charge in though because she is the one taking us on tours, planning the meetings, etc.

I mean when she gives you the chance, then you take charge. Holding the gaze is a good sign.

What sort of chance?

Hmmm, that will be up to her. A flirtatious glance, a chance meeting, being alone for awhile. Could come at any time so be awake.

Of course, if she has a BF, that's when we have a problem. However, she lives with her parents, doesn't like partying or clubbing, seems quite shy and nervous too. I want to get her alone with me but that's difficult.

Just get close. Mentally and physically, as close as you can. Do not push it.

What about e-mailing her?

Go ahead. But face to face will get better results.

It's really my only form of contact I have with her apart from meeting with her once per week... unfortunately I have no idea what to say to her if I'm e-mailing her.

Is she attractive? Do you like her?

I think she's attractive, don't know if I like her though.

Then maybe you should wait until you are sure or wait for her to do something to make you like her.

It's mostly based on looks so far although there are a few things I do like about her that aren't so superficial.

Doesn't that contradict #12145?

If you do like her then waiting is useless. At around #12145 it was not clear whether you did like her.

I don't know if I like her. I was kind of annoyed that she wasn't going to sell her analysis book for any less than £45 (the price she bought it for).
