Best way to approach a male friend with romantic intentions?
I rather not ruin a good friendship or bring awkwardness into it but I find myself attracted to a friend of mine and there are slight hints that perhaps he returns the feeling. Giving the occasional compliment and laughing at my silly jokes along with speaking to me often through texts daily. He is a very friendly guy in general though so I could easily be misconstruing the situation. Should I wait for a larger sign or take it into my own hands? If so what are things I can do or say to demonstrate my attraction other than being completely forward?
