That’s tricky because if they don’t want to show you who they really are, they might be excellent at keeping it from you. I don’t say that at all to shame you; I’m simply bummed that guys aren’t asking “who are the good girls” and then asking them out and girls aren’t asking “who are the good guys” and praying they ask them out. Thank you for your examples.)
