She sometimes puts an “x” on the end of her texts – but not always.
She does have a boyfriend who she has been seeing for about a year but I don’t think it is serious – she only likes him and doesn’t love him.
She may well just see you as a “big brother” type who she likes talking to.
If she has picked up on the fact that you like her – she may also be flattered by the attention.
At the least – I would recommend you wait until she has finished with her current boyfriend and has had some time being single. Flirting or putting an “x” on her texts doesn’t mean that she sees you as a potential boyfriend.We gave it one last try in January this year but she ended it again and I couldn’t take any more so that was it.She has moved on and has another man in her life now.You will only find out the truth as to whether she likes you romantically or not, if she tells you of her own accord or if you ask her directly. Directly, preferably soberly and without any pressure or too much expectation. Rejection is the risk you take with any relationship but without taking a risk – you won’t know whether you have a future together or not.* HOW TO CONTACT SARAH Please send your questions on relationship and emotional problems to Sarah Abell, The Daily Telegraph, 111 Buckingham Palace Road, London, SW1W 0DT, or email [email protected]
