The guy that I've been going out with the past few weeks told me he has a crush on me, and I told him I like him back. We've kissed a few times since then, held hands, hugged, and other stuff like that, which is awesome. We have also been out on several dates. (Nothing sexy, because we're both pretty innocent people. Just hanging out in the park, ice cream, dinner, etc.)
He's nerdy and sweet, and seems like a great guy - I've only heard good things about him from the other kids at school. The only thing is, both of us are pretty awkward when it comes to romance. We both know it, and sometimes we'll even say something like: 'wow, we're bad at this' or 'I have no idea what to do now'. At least we're on the same page... But I really like him and I want to be in a more serious relationship. How should I go about that?
Also, should I ask him out again? (I have a cold right now, so obviously I'll wait until I get better, because I don't want to get him sick.) Since it is the 21st century, I think I am perfectly capable of asking him out. But I also don't want to come on too strong. I want him to remain interested in me. Should I wait for him to ask me out again?
Last thing: I asked him if I can call him my boyfriend, and I think it may have been too soon. I mean, he said that if I wanted to call him that, it was fine... I am sure he really likes me, but maybe I should have waited longer? Neither of us have ever been in such a spontaneous relationship - I haven't known him that long. But we decided to try this out, so I feel like I want to call him my boyfriend. What do I do?
