Ever since I met this girl during the recent Lohri festival, I can’t get her out of my head. All the building folk had gathered in the compound to celebrate. She accompanied one of the neighbours. The girl lives in Ranchi and is on a visit to Mumbai to explore job opportunities. The neighbour happens to be her maternal uncle. After we were introduced by the neighbour, we got talking and exchanged numbers. As she is keen to work in an ad agency, I told her I knew some people who could help her. She is 22 and I am 27. I work in a travel and tourism company. She has been calling me to ask me where to mail her bio-data. I gave her some contacts, but she did not get a proper reply. She is disheartened, but I have told her not to give up. I do not know about her, but I have fallen for her hook, line and sinker. How do I get to know her feelings for me?

If you are helping her find her job, you can surely read her mind. If she is turning to you, for guidance, it means that she trusts you. But right now she is focussed on her career and love can wait. First, you need to find out if she is single or she has someone on her scene in Ranchi. Next, drop hints that you care for her and have genuine feelings for her. I am sure if she likes you, she will reciprocate your feelings. At the same time, do not be in haste as she is a relative of your neighbour and it might strain relations with them. So, first help her find a job and then plan a future with her.
