I met this girl named Andrea as well as this guy Nate about the same time two years ago in high school. I had met them on separate occasions and terms but they ended up dating. Now I had become like very good friends with them and life was going good and I kinda treated the girl Andrea like a friend because I wanted to respect their relationship. Inside I have always been attracted to and felt a deep connection with the girl and she is honestly the reason I began dating in the first place. At her birthday last month I found out she had broken up with my friend Nate (they are cool with each other and still hang) and had just started dating this kid from her school named Spencer (was a pretty chill kid). Anyways we have begun hanging out a shit ton more from like maybe 1 a month to like 4-5 times a week and she has really been there for me as I have been having some hard times with my mom being sick. Anyways as I have been hanging with her more I began to truly realize that I REALLY like this girl and have for some time and as we have become much closer I am beginning to see a large chance at a relationship. It seems she has been showing large amounts of interest in me, but she may just be being a good friend but it seems like there has been more. My plan is to calmly and collectively while we hanging out tell her how I feel for her and just let it sit out there so at least she knows I like her and see what happens from there. I don't mind staying best friends with her if she is not interested but honestly she is the coolest/most unique girl I have ever known and one of the only girls I have ever met that has shown that she cares. Whats your guys advice?
