Question:

(unedited)

I have known this guy for a couple of months. He appears to be good. I have dreamt of him about five times already prior to reading istikhara. All seemed good. When istikhara was performed the answer was positive. But I don't seem to be attracted to the guy. I do like him but my heart doesn't feel much for him. Maybe the problem lies with me.. Your advice would be most welcome.. And please make dua Allah opens my heart to that which is good and Allah grants me hidayat.‎​آمين.
