    What to do next?

    Basically I asked a guy out and although he didn’t really like me in that way (we’ve been friends for 3 years), he said he liked my personality and was open to trying. So we’re dating. He’d always intiate conversations online and when I see him, he’d put his arm around my shoulder. But he doesn’t really initiate much physical contact. So I initiated hand holding and I kissed him on the cheek at the end of our last date (and he would return it, though I’m not sure if it was out of obligation/convention/politeness). I initiated physical contact on these occasions because he saw me as a friend all along and I wanted to do something to allow him to consider me in a different way. So what to do next? Might be important to add we’ve only been on 2 dates. My plans are not to initiate physical touch for now, and just see if he’d do anything about it. Thoughts? We’re both in our 20s but it’s our first time dating someone.

    Whoa. You are in your 20’s and you have never dated before? But, you have been friends for 3 years. Do you see anything wrong with this picture? Tell me what it is.

    Yep. Never really thought about dating until now and didn’t come across the right person. More focused on studying and working. I don’t really see anything wrong, well, because of my lack of experience firsthand and also because I only liked him more than a friend within the past few months.

    Maybe put in more effort to your look. Makeup dresses heels so he sees you as a woman. If he still doesn’t touch you then maybe he just isn’t attracted to you.
