Effort, time and interest in my direction means you care. If you aren't interested enough to ask- I'm not going to tell you anything. You don't get to just know or gawk for knowing sake. Those days are over.
Jacob.. I think he used to like me(I saw him always looking at me, and when I would look, he would smile) but I didn't have much interest at the time. Now I really like him, but he's not showing interest anymore :(
