I Think My New Friend Wants To Date Me?
Hi Thomas, I have never listened to your show before but I am really enjoying it. I have recently met a new friend, and I can feel us becoming closer and closer friends. He is quite attractive and we are the same age (17). He has been in the same group of friends as me for a while now, but we had never spoken until a week ago. I do find him attractive, but I don’t think I would ever want to date him. I am worried that he is into me and perhaps wants to date me which would put our friendship on the line. I don’t know this for sure, but I have a feeling. At the same time though, he is known for being naturally flirtatious so maybe I am reading this wrong? HELP!
Dear Anonymous Online The Line, Thank you for your message and welcome to the show! I am happy to hear that you are enjoying the programme.
There are a lot of factors at work here, but first and foremost we must remember not to read too much into things which can be exactly as they appear. As your friend is known to be naturally flirtatious - he may just be being the way he normally is: friendly and flirty.
As of your message he has not asked you out and you have not according to your explanation have seen him other than with your friends. Befriending someone is always a great thing - the "getting to know you stage", learning about each other and just becoming generally familiar with the overall likes and dislikes of a person. Do not be confused with "getting to know you" and "wanting to date…

Guest writer and keen healthy lifestyle advocate, Jessica Gatfield, gives us pro tips on breaking bad habits and how to pick and stick to your New Year's resolutions!
1. Don't feel like joining the gym? Take a walk!
Walking just 30 minutes a day can reduce your risk of heart disease, strokes and has been proven to lower cholesterol. For many, it can help you lose weight, tone up your legs, bums and tums and increase circulation which boosts energy levels throughout the day. Simply parking your car a little further away from the supermarket, taking the stairs instead of the lift or getting off the bus a few stops early will all makes a difference to your overall health. And, furthermore, walking makes you happy! Exercise releases feel-good endorphins that in turn tackles depression and reduces stress.
2. Can't ditch the chips? Find healthier alternatives!
If you're a lover of fast food, take aways or microwave meals, try switching to homemade. Whether you're a culinary genius or can't tell a fork from a spoon, there are so many recipes that can be easily made and are a lot healthier for you. If you are a devout chip worshipper, how about making your own? Better still, swap ordinary potatoes for sweet potatoes. Throw on some paprika and sea salt, drizzle with olive oil and bake in the oven: tasty and easy. If you are a sugar monster and cannot beat the cravings, try swapping milk chocolate for dark chocolate or haribo for some fresh fruit and yoghurt. And by all means, don't deprive yourself. If you want that slice of cake so badly, have it. Just have a slither, not the whole thing! Try eating sweet treats and junk food in moderation and begin to introduce more…
