This is all about how to become more than friends with that girl that you've either had a crush on since grade school, or you've been hanging out with and you just don't know how to take it to the next level.
This is one of the hardest things to do, because you know what you don't want to wreck the friendship. But on the other hand you have this whole what if, sitting out there. So the best thing to do is really try to read the cues before you make a move. She's probably waiting for you to do it if she's interested, but at the same time, you know, she might really enjoy the platonic friendship.
So try to kind of put a feeler out there and try to flirt a little bit to see if it comes back to you. You know, do the flirtatious moves, do a little of the flirtatious touching. Not overboard, but at the same time kind of giving her the cues and see if they're returned before you make the move.
If you're getting the response back that you want to get and she is giving the flirtatious cues back to you, then go for it. You know, you need to come straight out there and you need to say, I'd love to take you out. I think you are a fabulous woman and I think you're fantastic and I really, you know, enjoy our friendship, but I'm really attracted to you.
It's all about having the guts to put it out there and if she's your friend, you know, obviously she's already into you on an emotional level, and if you can take it to the next level without ruining the friendship you could have something really, really cool.
So I say go for it, but I say first of all you have to really kind of feel the waters out, unless you don't want to be friends with her afterwards then don't worry about it. Just go for it. But there's really no going back, so.
