4. “I think most people are overthinking this question. “Hey, I just wanted to say I think you’re pretty cool people and I enjoy spending time with you. I’d like to get to know you better over dinner, drinks, etc if you’re up for that?” If they’re interested, plan a day. If they’re not, you still keep the invitation friendly and it still keeps the door open to being friends. This works for me and any rejection I have had, we’ve remained friends.”

6. “I’m not saying to stare at her all the time, however, do something like below: When you suddenly see her in close range, let’s say you guys come across each other at the corner of a corridor. When you see her look at her eyes so deeply and a bit longer than usual. Act shy, stutter a bit and say Hi. As if you have the biggest crush.”

9. “There’s a whole list and probably a flow chart. You don’t want to proceed/escalate unless she’s returning the signals. Engaged, interesting conversation, eye contact, escalating into maybe light touching and floaters to make plans.”

10. “Man, I wouldn’t beat around the bush. I’d have a private conversation and tell her “I think you’re a great person, and I’d love the opportunity to get to know you more. If you don’t reciprocate the feeling, that’s okay. You don’t have to give me an answer now, or even if you wish not to.” Then the ball is in her court to let you know if you should pursue or not, and everyone doesn’t waste their time.”

11. “I don’t know, I’ve always told them I was interested. I feel like that’s a whole lot of extra steps for “hey you wanna go get coffee, grab a drink, or hang out sometime?” I feel people miss a lot because they are trying to do x thing without doing x thing.”

14. “Honesty and authenticity are key to any true relationship, even non-romantic ones. Tell her how you feel and be clear and straightforward with it. Remember, you’re not trying to “make” her feel the same way. You’re just trying to find out if she does. Manage your expectations, whatever happens, is ok. Just be happy that you know.”

15. “It depends on the culture I think. For example, in my country, there is no concept of a formal “date” as such, and asking for one is seen as extremely weird and uncomfortable which makes it hard to express feelings for someone. Here it’s mostly by hanging with friends of theirs or by texting a lot. I hate this trend but it is what it is.”
