I was a tour guide for a recent birthright Israel trip, and on the plane over sat next to a great guy. Over the course of the trip, I developed a *huge* crush on him, and we became good friends -- nothing more, because I knew he had a girlfriend. Now, we're writing and talking on the phone, and I can't figure out if he likes me as a friend or as something more. How can I tell? Help me, Bubby -- he's funny, he's smart, he's cute, he's Israeli, he could be the one!
Dear Jet Love,
At least your flight to Israel was not boring - meeting a nice guy. As far as all these phone conversations go, enjoy them and see how far it takes you. Does he live near you? Are your conversations personal or just light every day stuff? Has he asked you to meet you someplace to have coffee?
So just be telephone friends. You never know when such a meeting will be the real thing. My advice is watch your step and try to learn more about this young man from him about himself - school - job - plans for the future - what he plans to do with his life.
Good luck and let me know what happens.
