Annie Fox for Teens... Hey, Terra!

Annie (AKA Hey Terra!) has been around long enough to have experienced a lot of what Life can dish out. But, it hasn’t been so long that she's forgotten what it's like to be your age. Check out some of the thousands of email questions teens from around the world have sent to Terra. You may learn something useful from her answers:

Wish I had one:
“I can't tell if she likes me.”

Hey Terra,

I want to know how to tell if girl likes me because I like her and I can't tell if she likes me but I am to afraid to ask her personally and I can't get a friend to and I don't know her email address.


Dear Toggle,

Instead of wondering how to ask her "Do you like me?" I'd suggest you spend some time getting to know her as a person (before you start thinking of her as a potential girlfriend). The more time you spend with her the better able you'll be to read the "signs." For example, does she smile when she sees you? Does she pay attention when you talk to her (make eye contact, really listen to what you're saying, etc.)? Does she laugh and seem to be enjoying your company? All of these are signs that she likes you and if you read the signs correctly you really don't have to ask the question "Do you like me?" the answer will be obvious.

I hope this helps!

In friendship,
