How do I get to know the girl I like?

Dear Diana, I'm a 29-year-old-guy who works in a private company. I used to attend English speaking classes to improve my diction

I fell in love with my tutor. But I couldn’t make out whether she loved me or not. My class is now over, but I am unable to forget her. I’ve even tried to figure out where she lives. What should I do?

Dear Prastaav,
Why didn’t you strike a conversation when you were still in class? At least you could then gauge her reaction — whether she was interested in you or not. At that time it would have been easier for you to approach her. You had a genuine excuse of speaking to her. Perhaps you wanted to clear some doubts or ask some more questions? Remember you were her student. Also, you don’t even know if she is married or has someone in her life. You lived in your dream world with her. So now wake up. If you are really interested go back to the institute with some queries. For instance, state a friend is keen to join or find out about the other courses on offer. See how she reacts and then ask her if she would accept an invitation out for coffee. Say this is your way of saying thank-you to her. Depending on how she reacts, then take it forward. Best of luck.
