There's a friend of mine—let's call her Lily—and a guy—David. Lily told me that she feels very happy each time she meets, talks, plays games, dines (and so on) with David. I guess she's falling in love. But she is very perplexed these days, because she likes him, but can't be sure — wants to but is afraid to make sure — whether David likes her or not. So she has decided to write something about that emotion, rather than telling David directly (thus prompting him to say "yes, I like you too").

Here is my question — for what perplexes her has also perplexed me:

In what Literary and Artistic way can she describe that emotion?

In this case, Lily is not sure if the feelings of interest are mutual. Lily should tell David that she was hoping to improve her English by practicing conversing with him. If David accepts, then it is Lily's chance to seduce him. –  jlovegren Dec 21 '12 at 2:26
    
Try "I like you. If you like me, please check this box []" then send it via schoolground courier. It worked for me in seventh grade. Good luck. I've got my fingers crossed for Lily. –  KitFox Dec 21 '12 at 2:37

I suggest you would probably get better answers at Writers.SE. Failing that, I suggest that you buy her a copy of Cyrano de Bergerac, by the French playwright Edmond Rostand. It may offer her many highly literary ideas; and even if it doesn't it is a very romantic and moving play which will provide her a very good cry. And then she can inscribe the book with an affectionate note and give it to David. — By the way, did you know that Teifi is the Welsh spelling of Davey? –  StoneyB Dec 21 '12 at 2:40
    
@StoneyB: I agree. I have voted to migrate (Off Topic => Writers). –  Cerberus Dec 21 '12 at 2:44
