I Want to Date My Friend
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Male
hey, ok i need some advice.....I had this girlfriend about a little over a year ago and we were pretty close and went out and everything but then it ended and we broke up so I was single all of grade 10 pretty much.
Anyways after a long relationship it wasn't too bad it actually felt kinda good but lately it's not been. Lately I've felt like I really want a girlfriend, someone I can be with and have fun. There's this girl that's a posibility.....we have been friends for years but we were really close torwards end of last school year because we were in a class together and talked all the time and on MSN. But then the summer came and I didn't see her pretty much all summer so that sucked we talked every once and a while on MSN but I was working a lot so nothing really happened.
Anyways I saw her this year and I was so happy to see her again and she seemed to be the same way with me and I looked at her and I think I've fallen in love, b4 was just saw her as a friend. We don't talk enough because there's not a real chance...she's always hard to aproach with a lot of friends around and she's not on MSN much anymore so I don't know what I should do. She talked to a friend of mine who's a girl and said she think i'm good looking and really likes me as a friend and thinks i'm funny and cool but has never thought of me in a romatic setting b4.
How do I get back on track and get her to realize I like her and I want to be more then friends when she's too hard to aproach. We talk for maybe a couple mins every day in the middle of a crowded hallway so that's not much good. Please give me some advice I really like this girl and I'm not like the rest of the guys in my school who are looking for lust not love I actually want to just be with her I could care less what we do sexually it'd up to her.
Dating a friend is THE most common relationship issue in high school, and I have a whole how-to on it -
take it slow and steady. The aim is not to leap at her and say "date me!!" The aim is to spend more and more time with her so in the end you pretty much ARE dating, and then to turn and say "isn't this fun"? :)
