Dating for the shy woman
But I have a confession to make: I don’t answer every question that comes into my inbox.

Here’s a whole bunch in that arena: Does He Like Me? There is a wide range of “does he like me” questions that I get.

Relationships are messy at times – even for those of us that like things clean (no drama).
