I haven't dated anyone in over a year. That relationship was bullshit too, as I was goaded into taking this chick to our highschool prom even though she didn't go there anymore at the time. She had this secret operation going on to use me to make her ex-boyfriend jealous and all that good shit. She even faked a pregnancy on me. Now this chick was hot, and I was shocked she'd even want to get with me in the first place. Needless to say, my confidence was destroyed after the incident, and I haven't been able to hold a conversation or the interest of a girl since. About a week ago, a gorgeous girl that I went to high school with but never talked to messaged me online. (She was one of those girls that always made my head turn and I'd think to myself; "I'd do anything for her.") She ran into me at a public place then decided to follow through and find me, eventually leading to a couple of occasions where no one else was involved. It was hard to tell where she was coming from at first, and she seems to have a lot of guy friends, but something about it told me that this was no coincidence and there might be mutual attraction here. However, we've seen each other about 4 different times in a week, all in what I would call "dating situations," yet she never lets her guard down and hints at a kiss. I don't want to make her uncomfortable by asking about it, and she's tons of fun to be around so I'd hate to ruin the possibility of a friendship. I'm smitten though, how do I go about taking this to the next level?
