I think the problem is that they don’t hang out routinely and have only spoken once, but IDK if I’ve followed every detail here. By late HS, I was fine talking to boys I knew. I do remember noticing a few guys around my neighborhood that I thought were cute when I was 17-18 who probably went to a different HS or possibly were college commuters, and I’d have had NO clue how to get to know those guys back then since our paths never really crossed. I assume this scenario is similar-ish to that, though they at least seem acquainted even if I don’t understand the connection… which should make it a lot easier. Pretty much all of my early dating experiences until I jumped online for the first time in my mid-20s were guys I met at school, through (existing) friends/at parties, or at work.

Anyway, I’m curious for an update since I think the holiday party was last night. How did it go, @IDEK?

ETA: As a college sophomore, I was walking home from a party with a couple friends and met a guy who was walking home from a different party with a couple of his friends. Somehow we started talking? He added me on FB, then contacted me on AIM, then we exchanged numbers. (Why we did not exchange numbers while on our respective ways home, I could not tell you.) Once we exchanged numbers, we made plans. When I brought up using online platforms as a tool, that’s what I mean. I don’t mean having any kind of prolonged or inappropriate online contact that would make your parents upset. I meant using it as a tool to help facilitate in-person activities and dates, especially if it feels lower stakes than asking for his number.
