    I know he likes me, but he’s shy

    I’ve known this guy for about six months. We met at a friend’s party and connected instantly. Shortly after, we started to hang out and became good friends. He’s literally my soulmate. At first I was convinced that we were just friends with no intention to change that, although we were flirting quite a lot. But I didn’t take that seriously. Lately, we’re joking around about starting a relationship and although we are officially joking, I can tell that we both mean it. One night, he then told me that he would definitely like to date me. And to be honest, I would really like to try it out too. But this guy is kind of shy, especially when it comes to dating, and the last time we met he admitted that he wanted me to make the first step. Which I did. We talked and I made it pretty clear that I’d like to be with him. But somehow things don’t feel right. What does he expect from me? Also I think that if he’s really interested, it’s now his turn to make a move. We seem to be going backwards…

    Maybe you could communicate your concerns with him? It does seem like he is interested in you, but maybe he is just as confused about all of this as your are. I’m quite shy myself, and I know that even when I’ve heard from someone that they like me I am not sure what to do.
    You said you made it pretty clear that you’d like to be with him? He might need to hear you say the words outright to him.
    I say go for it, just straight up ask him out with no question of what you mean.
    Good luck!

    “..we started to hang out and became good friends.”
    ” He’s literally my soulmate.”
    ” we’re joking around about starting a relationship and although we are officially joking, I can tell that we both mean it.”
    “One night, he then told me that he would definitely like to date me.”
    “..the last time we met he admitted that he wanted me to make the first step.”
    “I made it pretty clear that I’d like to be with him. But somehow things don’t feel right. What does he expect from me?”

    Please tell me you are teenagers!
    If this is coming from two grown adults it’s downright pitiful.
    Dating isn’t exactly rocket science!

    Generally the (guy) asks the girl to go out for lunch, to a movie, or whatever else and (he) pays for it.
    They talk, laugh, flirt, hold hands, kiss/make out, and in the end make plans to see each other again.
    In between dates they talk on the phone, text, and email one another.

    If two people WANT to be together and yet it’s not happening someone is lying.
    Any guy who can’t meet you half way after giving him the green light isn’t all that into you.
