Should I show my crush the poem I wrote about him?

I wrote a poem about my crush, who is also my friend. My friends think it’s great, but I want to know how guys react to poetry. It’s not mushy-gushy, but I don’t want him to be freaked.

Bill: How do guys love poetry? Let me count the ways. Getting a poem is like hugging your mom. You can appreciate it—just not in front of your friends.

Dave: Resisting the temptation to answer in haiku, I’ll suggest tucking away the poem unless things progress a bit further. This guy is your friend, and you don’t want to freak him out with verse. Give it some time.
