When it comes to dating, it is often good to be mysterious and aloof. If you’re too straighforward and let the person know exactly what you’re thinking, it can take all the fun out of dating.

But at the same time, it can be hard to read someone’s signals. Last time she hung out with Dale, Marni wasn’t sure if it was a date or not. Watch as a little peck on the cheek reveals loud and clear where things are going.

Dale:  I had a really good time tonight.

Marni:  That was really fun.

Dale:  You like roller skating?

Marni:  Yeah. I did. I mean, I hadn’t done that since I was like, you know, five. So…

Dale:  I Imagine the merry-go-round...I mean, the same thing. Don’t you agree?

Marni:  It was classic, very beautiful, yeah, a lot of fun. So…Yeah. It was fun.

Dale:  We’ll do this again sometime?

Marni:  Yeah. Let’s do it for sure. OK. I’m gonna go.

Dale:  Alright. Bye. See you later.

Marni:  Bye.

Dale:  Call!

Marni:  I guess…I guess that was definitely a date. I didn’t think it was, but that was…Yeah. The kiss? Yeah. That was definitely a date. OK. So I’m dating again? Am I really dating? Is this a good thing? I think it’s a good thing. I think I want to be dating and Dale’s great, right? I mean, there was that whole, like, misconception thing about, you know, he was actually a cop, but he’s a cop. Do I want to date a cop? I guess it’s a kind of security. It’s safe, right? I’m a law-abiding citizen. I have nothing to hide. So, OK. I think I’m into this.

Marni and Dale had a fun day. They went roller skating and rode a merry-go-round. As Marni gets out of the car, Dale gives her a little peck on the cheek.

Now Marni knows that Dale wants to be more than friends. But she has to figure out how she feels about it. As she gets ready for bed, she talks to herself in the mirror and decides that Dale is a nice police officer and she would like to date him.

How can you tell when someone likes you? Are you glad Marni and Dale are going to be together?
