So, like, there's this guy from school that I known for a little while (well since the beginning of the school year, so since september), we were friends, and he asked me today if I wanted to start becoming a little more than friends and go out with him.

I really like him and would totally love to be more than just ''friends'' with him.

But I just find it a little weird that we've been friends for about a year now and he has just developped more intense feelings towards me NOW, that it just took so long for him to developp feelings toward me.

I don't know if he is really serious. I know he broke up with his last girlfriend few weeks ago because it didn't work out so I'm wondering if he is just looking for another relationship to replace this one desperatly or if he really likes me ?

Any ideas/thoughts on that ?

(I'm far from a pro when it comes to relationships so any help would be appreciated [Smile] )

Actually, that's exactly what happened with me with my most recent exboyfriend. We knew each other for almost a year before he developed feelings for me (I'd had a crush on him for almost the whole year though... [Razz] ) and it turned out great. Often, if they work out, the best relationships can be ones that are built on strong friendships - you already know each other and are comfortable with each other.

That said, if you are concerned about whether he's serious... ask him! If he likes and respects you, he should give you an honest answer, and you can decide from there what you want to do about it.

So if you care to find me
Look to the western sky
As someone told me lately
Everyone deserves the chance to fly

Well I asked him if he was serious yesterday and he told something like : ''Yeah. totally. Is this something cool with you ?''

So he seems serious. I guess it's just me who didn't want to believe it cause it sorta like came so suddenly and was so inexpected. Maybe he had feelings all along and just didn't show them to me or maybe he just developped those lately. Don't know but I guess it doesn't really matter anyway.

So we'll see where that goes. I totally want to go out with him : he's a really nice guy and I'm able to say that this soon since we were friends for a year. [Smile]

Thanks LucysDiamond !
