Well, considering that you're asking him out, and your friends told him, he's probably got some idea that you like him. Whether you want to let him know that you really do all depends what you're comfortable with. You dont have to go up to him and say "I really like you!" There are always more subtle ways to do it that will clue him in. Whatever you decide, good luck!
I'd rather be a forest than a street. Yes I would. If I could, I surely would.

I hate to give a cliche phrase here, but ultimately it's up to you.
Put yourself in his shoes. People feel flattered when they are liked. It's a natural high! It often gives them a boost of self-confidence! So, even if it turns out that he doesn't like you, think of the greater good! You've just gained more experience and learned things about relationships, and he feels good.
Really, it's not as big of a deal as it seems like. People tell each other they like them all of the time; it's part of nature. How would so many people be married?!
I know it seems like a lot to handle right at once (think of what most guys go through!), but once you've gotten it all out you'll feel like you're not hiding anything (a crush) and you'll feel a lot more confident and on top of the world! It's a great feeling, even if nothing comes out of it.
Remember: there's not a soul in this world who hates to be loved!

I disagree a bit with that one. A lot of guys, though they would like to ask a girl out, are still shy and so they don't ask. I think you should ask him out, but something subtle, like: "maybe we could catch a movie this weekend?" No matter what his answer its a win-win situation, you either gain a guy or gain the experience in asking. And really, if your friends already told him that you like him, he might even be kinda *expecting* it...
There's nothing to lose, but think of what you could gain!
Love is natural, and everything that goes with it. ;)

Why is that? We're living in the 21st century, baby. Anything is possible!

i side with slicker_than_ur_average on this one. i was brought up around the sense that the guys are supose to ask out the girls not the other way around. but if you really like this guy and you have to guts for it. then just ask him. but if he isnt that kind of guy. just wait and see.
