You probably give better advice than most paid advice columnists, right? Mike has a question and we think you can help. Leave a comment with your advice.

Mike's quandary:

"So there's this girl I used to see years ago. We dated for a short while and the sex was phenomenal, but we ultimately didn't work out.

"I enjoy bumping into her; we work in the same field. I'd love to hang out with her again. I know what you're thinking but that's not what I'm after -- I really do enjoy hanging with her.

"I can sense she is keeping her distance because she knows the chemistry will lead us to the bedroom, which will just complicate the friendship. What's a good way to let her know I'm interested in spending time with her in the street, not the bedroom?"
