admitting feelings

Unread post by avaiara »

so, i’ve been talking to this boy for about a week. we’ve known each other for longer, but “talking” for a week. we’ve been flirty and have both been talking about missing relationships, that he likes flirting with me, etc. i’m starting to like him, we both have a lot in common and we talk literally 24/7. i don’t know how soon is too soon, but i don’t want to scare him off. do i wait? do i tell him? what do i do?

Hi avaiara,

You could certainly wait if you wanted to, since taking even more time to get to know each other could give you a sense of whether you want to act on your feelings for him. That being said, since it sounds like there's some mutual flirting going on, I don't think it's out of bounds to ask if he's interested in exploring a more romantic relationship with you. Do you feel like you could have that conversation with him?
