What signs tell you a boy likes you?

Don't look for "signs". Honestly, the signs you see may or may not exist. Sometimes you may see "signs" just because you are looking for them. Just wait until he tells you he likes you before you get your hopes up.

Are the symptoms of TSS continuous or can someone get them occasionally?

TSS symptoms can occur monthly with your menstrual cycle when you have a mild case, they will present like flu and may pass but long-term can lower your immunity and result in a serious life-threatening case - a doctor can run tests for TSST-1 antibodies to see if this is TSS. In a serious case of TSS within a few days you'd suffer organ failure and you would die within a week, with a serious case it's not something you get occasionally...without urgent medical care you die.

How long after removing a tampon would you know that it was not toxic shock?

It's a myth that TSS only occurs from leaving tampons in too long - most TSS cases occur within the first 2-3 hours of use. Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) occurs when certain bacteria multiply and start creating TSST-1 toxins, these toxins enter the body via vaginal tissues and damage caused by tampon use, if you lack immunity to TSST-1 toxins they overwhelm the immune system leading to TSS. If a person lacks immunity to TSST-1 toxins then the effect is immediate, these toxins don't wait until X number of hours to take effect. If a tampon is left too long this increases the likelihood of bacteria responsible for TSS multiplying to unsafe levels and starting to produce TSST-1 toxins, likelihood of TSST-1 toxins accumulating to unsafe levels, and of TSST-1 toxins entering your body and having a serious effect. There is no specific time-frame when you may contract TSS or start to see symptoms.
