Okay so there is this guy and he's super cute and seems like a pretty cool guy. I've never really talked to him or anything but I do know that he has tourettes because my brother went to hs with him.
I've been trying to get some flirting going on but I'm nervous he thinks I'm smiling at him or looking at him because has these ticks. (they really aren't bad, but noticeable). So should I just go talk to him to eliminate the confusion (that I may or may not just be creating in my head lol)

Tourette syndrome is a very confused condition for people not suffering from it. Just because someone with the condition blurts out racial or sexist slurs it does not mean they are secretly bigot. It could mean they are reacting to something they heard at one time or another, sort of like a parrot. Once you understand that you will learn to be more confortable around them. Remember, too, that it's only words without substance, meaning they don't intend to carry out their bigotry. Once the surrounding community understands that they will hopefully be less uncomfortable around the person suffering from T.S.2
