#1 Get your friend to call you both a couple When you’re having a fun chat with the guy you like, ask a trusted girl friend to join both of you in the conversation.
It would be preferable if there are other friends around too.
If you know what the other person expects and desires from the onset, you know if you’re able and/or willing to meet the other person’s needs and wants.
Dating is a stage of romantic or sexual relationships in humans whereby two or more people meet socially, possibly as friends or with the aim of each assessing the other's suitability as a prospective partner in a more committed intimate relationship or marriage.
And out of the blue, let your trusted friend comment to no one in particular in the group and say something like, “these two make a cute couple, don’t they?
