Translation: "Does Gael like me'"

I know that "I like Gael" is "Me gusta a Gael" (as in I like/am attracted to him). But how do I say "Does Gael like me'" I'm completely confused by the pronouns.

Thank you!

I would say "Le caigo bien a Gael'"Also, "Me gusta a Gael" is not grammatically correct. "Me gusta Gael" means "I like Gael." But as Natasha said, gustar isn't the best verb for such contexts.

What is the difference between saying "me gusta Gael" vs. "a mi me gusta Gael"?

Repeating the pronoun just adds emphasis.Me gusta queso. / I like cheese.A mí, me gusta queso. / I like cheese.A mi hermana le gusta correr, pero a mí me gusta andar. / My sister likes to run, but I like to walk.

Natasha, it is "me gusta EL queso".
If you say "me gusta queso" sounds like Indian speaking.

Thanks everyone! A sample sentence would be: "I like Gael! I find him very attractive. But... does Gael like me'" So I'm thinking "Le gusto a Gael" works for "does Gael like me"

"¿Le gusto a Gael'" is fine (I've said that myself before a few times in my life), but you could go for any other of the alternatives above.

Me gusta Gael. Le encuentro atractivo.
¿Crees que a Gale le gusto yo'

Really? I've read in a couple books that gustar implies an attraction and if that's what you're trying to say (which I am) that "Me gusta Gael" is correct. (thanks for fixing the 'a'). So then I wanted to ask "Is Gael attracted to me'"

As Nati said.

¿Le gusto a Gael?

James suggested: le caigo bien which means: does he like my personality?

Other possibilities:

¿Crees que soy atractiva para Gael?

¿Le atraigo a Gael?

¿Me encuentra Gael atractiva'

My advice is to write out two or three full sentences using the phrases in question, and let some natives weigh in. The full context is very important to get the nuance right.

If you're going to use gustarse, which tends not to be used with people, you could say:

¿Le gusto a Gael?

There are probably better ways to say this. You can search for "like" in the search box at the top of the page.
