Is dating really this much of a crapshoot? Well, readers: You may as well tell us. What do you do to let someone know that you’re interested? And how quickly can “interested” turn to “creepy”?
What do you do if you want to show someone that you’re actually interested? Sometimes that can be hard to figure out.
When I want to show someone that I’m interested in them, I usually sweat profusely, and my reflection reminds me that I am little more than a potato with hair (A hairy spud that gets to write for a living, but a hairy spud nonetheless.) Disclaimer: I am oft noted for my facetiousness. If you’re looking for tips from experts (Ha!) who successfully showed someone that they’re interested, then you need look no further than Ask Reddit. Redditor SG412 got the ball rolling with this question:
Girls of Reddit, what signs should a guy pick up on that you like them?

I found out he got that RARE game bundle on Xbox. I told to him that Banjo and Kazooie was one of my favorite childhood games (my N64 cartridge was also corrupted so I couldn’t play it anymore). So I kept asking to come over after work (and apologize a lot for wanting to hang out) and play it with him, I’d sit right beside him almost very cuddly.
He wasn’t really taking the hint, I think it was because we had been friends since grade 8 so he didn’t really think much of it, but he thought it was weird that I kept asking and then apologizing to hang out so much. One day I asked him if he wanted to go to the amusement park with me because I got free tickets, he said “sure” and thought nothing of it. Later that night I complain that I’m uncomfortable with my sitting position, to which he replies with “Then find something comfortable I guess.” I said “Okay” and landed my head on his shoulder.
That’s when everything clicked in his head.
