So me and this girl have been friends forever, and recently she told me she had feelings for me. I like her too, and told her that and we’ve been talking for a couple weeks since then and it’s been normal, some stuff here and there, but i don’t know how to initiate the conversation/move things forward, because i like her. a lot. any advice/ personal experience?
Hah yeah you have to explain to us olds what “stuff here and there,” is!
But I agree, she said she likes you, you like her, too. The next move is to set up a concrete date. As in “[Name] would you like to go to dinner with me on [date] at [time]?” Not just “let’s get dinner sometime” but a specified date and time. Also, if she says she’s busy at that time, don’t assume she’s turning you down.. she’s allowed to have plans. Ideally you’d be talking to her and could turn it into a conversation like “is there another night that works better for you?… oh good, I’m free then, too…. how about 7:30?” or whatever.
But idk the kids these days probably do all this by texting so it might be harder to find that better time.
