I want to ask this hot guy from work out, though he has never shown any interest in me.

Q. I have a serious admiration for a co-worker, and he walks around me like he doesn’t know I exist. I don’t think he’s interested because he won’t even look at me, but my co-workers have convinced me that there’s a strong possibility that he may be interested and afraid to acknowledge his interest. I’m writing you because I want to invite him to my friend’s party as my date, but I wanted your opinion. What would you do in my shoes?
A. Nothing. I personally feel no man could be that shy in 2018. It seems that you are doing what a lot of women do…rationalize and separate the truth from a desire. I say, leave him be, until he gives you a reason to continue admiring him. As a rule, mutual admiration doesn’t hide itself. Meanwhile, feel free to invite him to a party, but not as your date.
Q. I need your help in making a decision. My girlfriend left me three years ago for my best friend. She moved in with him, and two months ago, he put her out and married another woman. Now, she’s back wanting me to take her in, and asking for forgiveness. I still love her, but I don’t want to trust her again. My problem is that I feel obligated to help her because she has nowhere to go. What do you think?
A. If helping her means somewhere other than living with you, I say do what you can. However, if you’re thinking about having her bunk with you, I say, don’t. Sounds like you’d be setting yourself up for hurt again. Just remember, she didn’t come back to you voluntarily. She was thrown back into your arms.
