Advice Column: Facebook HELP!Friday, November 19, 2010 By Tae Kim
I like this girl but when I look on her Facebook account, she has a convo with a girl I don’t know and they are talking about this one guy and how he is cute but I don’t know if it's me or some other guy. I feel a little jealous, any advice? From, ILahYou To ILahYou, First of all, thank you for sending your question to The Beckman Chronicle . I’m sure you knew Tae Kim, A.K.A The Great, was the advice columnist so you sent the question to us. I can - and will - help you with this situation very quickly! You shouldn’t have to feel jealous at all. Girls talk about guys all the time, regardless of whether they are in a relationship or not. You should find out if this girl likes you back. This could clear up a lot of confusion. Read what her FB conversation says and see if some of it applies to you. You can’t see what was on the other girl’s wall, but that’s where having friends of her friends comes in handy. Ask a friend that is a friend of the girl and ask them to copy and paste the conversation for you. I know this sounds a little creepy, but you want to find out, right? A better solution though is to ask the girl you like in person. If you wish to have a relationship with this person, honesty and being straight up is important! I don’t think you should worry too much. Try to get her attention and make her see that you’re the obvious and better choice than the other guy she was facebook chatting about. Just remember to bring it up lightly and not to make a big deal out of it. Tell me what you decided to do and write back to The Beckman Chronicle at firstname.lastname@example.org .
