Confused Wizard

Dear Hermione Granger,

How may a young wizard who is shy approach a witch he fancies?

Are there certain steps or instructions you may know of that work? I ask you, and not your husband, Mr. Weasley, since you yourself stated that he has “…the emotional range of a teaspoon…”.

Thank you so much,
Confused Wizard

Dear Confused Wizard,

Not having any experience in being a young wizard who fancies a witch, I feel more than slightly inadequate to answer your question. However, I will certainly try my best.

I first recommend becoming friends with this young witch. Get to know her better as a person. Be kind to her. Complement her on things that other people would normally not notice. Communicate openly with her. Make her laugh.

I believe that is the best advice I can give you. Ronald would also refer you to a book known as Twelve Fail-Safe Ways to Charm Witches, but I’m not entirely sure how helpful this reference is. As for the “emotional range of a teaspoon”…let’s just say it seems that my angry comment was unjustified.
