hey there! (:
i need some advice on getting out of the 'friend zone'. i'm a junior in highschool, 17 yrs old, and i REALLY like one of my guy friends. we were never really friends before this year but now we text occasionally (sometimes he texts first, sometimes i do), sit next to each other in 1st period (talk there), he comes to my bonfires, and this past weekend i actually went to one of his concerts (he's a singer in a band). So basically, my dilemma is that i'm afraid i'm stuck in the friend zone! My friend, let's call him Bill, is the kind of guy who hooks up with girls just because- with no strings attached (which i'm sure is normal for boys this age) but sometimes it bothers me because i really like him. i'd rather be a friend he respects then just a hook up to him though, ya know? also a lot girls like him, they like his facebook pictures/comment on his wall- stuff like that so i'm kind of thinking its impossible for us to turn into something.
so anyway sometimes we flirt with each other which is cool, and he actually asked me to go out with him (jokingly) so i told him lets go get married in vegas. so for a little while he'd introduce me to people as his wife (jokingly, again) and he'd put his arm around me and stuff. but then that stopped & we've been good friends. he usually comments on my facbeook status', he called me recently to ask about one of them, he gave me his shirt to wear to his concert & always makes an effort to talk to me in class- there's always little things like that but i don't know if i should take it as any signs or if thats normal?
another thing is at the last bonfire i went into my friends house to do something and he came in a little while after me to get some water, then he flicked it on me so i did it back and it continued for a little while, but then i walked outside and left him inside. i'm frustrated i did that -_- since it seems like he came in because i went in.
oh yeah but then there's things like he kinda tried to set me up with his band member and then he said he'll send me a link to one of his songs but never did. and he always calls me bro or broski and he calls me cute and adorable! but that's like.. a puppy, ya know? i think he might think of me as a little sister.
i don't mean to write a lot, sorry, i'm just trying to give some background info so its easier to understand/give advice.
so basically my ultimate question is what to do in this situation? i'm afraid to flirt too much & come on too strong but i want to talk to him all the time. i'm afraid of ruining the friendship if he thinks i act weird when i flirt too much but at the same time i want to give hints. also, i think i tend to give friend-vibes too.
i'm going to be working out in the weight room with him in there over the next few weeks i think so what should i do?
& my best friend & i may go to the mall with him & his best friend, AND he wants me to go to his next concert too... but he invites other people too so its hard for me to tell whether he wants ME there or i'm just another girl..
so much stress over a guy!
thanks so much in advance (:
