Dear Diana, I'm in love with a girl at my work place. The issue is I work night shifts while she works during the day. Even when we are in the same shift, we hardly interact as we are in different departments. Also, I haven't been able to gather the courage to go ahead and initiate a conversation. A few weeks ago, I sent her a Facebook friend request which she promptly accepted. It made me hopeful. The truth is I hardly know anything about her except that I find her wonderful. Most probably I am a fool as I have no idea how to proceed with this emotional dilemma. Should I just move on? - Raju

Dear Raju, Good heavens! You like her, you want to know her, so what are you waiting for? Muster up the courage. Befriend people who work with her and get to know her. She has accepted your Facebook request, so get going but slowly. Strike a casual conversation through Facebook. I am sure there is no dearth of topics to discuss as both of you work in the same organisation, so there are a lot of common stuff to discuss like what's going on at the workplace, your bosses and the work loads. Best of luck!
