Bergk Posted September 25, 2011 Share Posted September 25, 2011 Hi. I have a friend who I've been attracted to for a while. I'm certain she's aware of this, even though I've never explicitly told her. Anyway, we caught up with eachother recently during a night out - planned but not a date. My nerves consumed me this evening; but eventually I asked if she was involved with anybody, as I was frustrated with being so apprehensive in the past and wanted to take her out properly. Also, I knew she would expect me to prompt this situation because I'm the man. Her answer was neither yes or no. She elaborated, explaining she was dating somebody recently but things weren't working out. I laid my cards on the table and despite her never being stand-offish afterwards (she mentioned doing something different the next time we meet), I still don't understand why she couldn't be more direct. Maybe she was and I cannot see it? I'm being pessimistic recently, so obviously I've considered she isn't interested and I embarrassed myself, but if the roles were reversed I would have been more succinct a long time ago to prevent this kind of situation. I'd appreciate any thoughts on this and advice on what my next step would be. I've been tempted to apologize in a light-hearted way for putting her in an awkward position, but I'm thinking this could look weak in her eyes. Thanks, Berg.
