I Want to Date a Casual Friend
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Female
I am casual friends with this guy, I've known him for about 2 years but only see him maybe once a month. He's in university and i'm in my last year of high school. He recently broke up with his girlfriend, but I know he wants a girlfriend for the summer. I'm really interested in him but I don't know if he feels the same way. He jokes around a lot and since I have never had a serious boyfriend he keeps saying I'm a lesbian but I don't know if he actually thinks it or is just goofing off. Please help me decide what i should do.
It sounds like you are in a GREAT position here because you're already friends and can joke together. That is always the important first step! So simply ask him out to a movie as a friend. You can always do this casually - "I really want to go see XXXX on Friday but all my friends are busy. I hate going alone." That is his cue to jump in and offer to go with you. The more you do things like that, the more that things will naturally progress ...
