a young man I ran into in a thrift shop asked me to help him shop, then asked me to eat with him, then asked me to go on a walk, and then gave me his number.. It felt like a movie! Am I naive to think there's still a chance he only wants to be friends?
Be blunt. Ask him, it is, almost, the only way to tell if someone is genuine. Some guys play the game, others are genuine. It’s all about how much you are willing to put up with.
