Dear Mystic Medusa,
I found your site when i was searching for “seducing your flatmate tips” and I got to the Sun Sign Survey about flatmates. I love it. I have a problem to do with my housemate. I am a Leo. He is a Taurus. We are meant to hate one another but I ADORE him. He has a girlfriend. Sort of. Long distance, they hardly see each other and his most intimate time is spent with me. I am like his god-damned wife already except he doesn’t sleep with me. YET. We shop together, we go to the movies, everyone thinks we are a couple but we are NOT. Yet. I have tried hypnosis to get over this. I am not a stupid girl. I know it is not good to obsess over men you can’t get or to live in fantasy. I KNOW he thinks of me as more than just a flatmate because if he ever has more than two drinks, his eyes linger on my body. To make matters more complicated, he is also a SPY. Well i think he is. He works for foreign affairs. His girlfriend is a Virgo. Technically more compatible. She is neurotic. HOW can i get this to move on further? Every night i lie in my bed SWOONING. I am too dignified to just hit on him, though it has occurred to me. It is also a really good house set-up so i don’t want to blow that. I have actually become a saint of tidiness just to impress him so some things have been good about this. Please; tips, advice, suggestions before i go mad.
Um…get an apron? Fix up gourmet meals? The way to the Taurean male heart really IS via his stomach. Maybe make him a special meal on some occasion and then reveal that you are in unrequited love, let a little tear fall from you Leonine orbs and melt into him, quivering with…i don’t know…manipulation? Or you could just try and remove yourself from him a bit, create some distance and see what happens? He may actually think he has the best of both worlds: a Virgo girlfriend who gives him lots of space and a Leo admirer who undulates around the house in hot sportswear trying to impress him and leaving sexy undies in the bathroom to “dry”. Or maybe he is insanely in love with you. I’d wait it until September as you don’t want to do anything even a quarter psycho during the Zap Zone.
And peeps, what do you think? Come on, I know there is a well of wisdom and massive talent pool in the commenters.
