my brother thinks she has a crush on me...and is waiting on me to ask her out, but i dont know

Hi Jessica,

Well, it sounds like she might be interested but she could also just be friendly. What I would do is make an effort to go to the store a few more times (be brave) and be in her line and make conversation with her. This will help you to gauge the situation a little better. Plus, if you just go in and ask her out it might seem a little weird. Talk to her a few times with more than just "Hi" and then if it feels right, ask her out. You have nothing to lose and it's better than always wondering. I wouldn't just go in and ask her out because it would be very embarassing if she is just being friendly. Talk to her and see what happens.

Good luck! I hope you get a date with her!

I can answer questions about lesbian relationships, dating, coming out, what to do if you like someone who isn't a lesbian, and how to know if you or someone else is a lesbian. I am also willing to be a friendly ear to anyone who just needs someone to talk to-sometimes that is all we need.


I am a lesbian and have lived openly for over 15 years. I had to figure lesbian life out on my own because it wasn't socially acceptable when I came out. I belonged to gay clubs in college and have pretty much seen it all in the gay community. i am currently in a very happy lesbian relationship but I had to date a lot of toads before I found my princess. I've always been the advice giver for my friends. I just like to see people happy and talking to someone on the outside of the situation usually helps.

I volunteer for the local YMCA and served as a Big Sister until the local chapter ran out of money and closed.

I have an Associate's Degree in Humanities and a Bachelor's Degree in Speech Communications.
