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?

maybe flirt a little more just to make sure hes on the same page & if he doesn't pick up on it i would wait for a bigger sign just in case. it sounds promising though

Be open and honest, you never know what could come from it, who knows maybe his asking the same question you are.
And if he doesn't atleast you can move on.

Either way good luck

He probably feels the same. He is a male. If he's not gay and he is your friend then he's interested or at least thought about it.

Presuming you're both adults:
Invite him over for dinner at your house. Dim the lights & light some candles. Disconnect the TV. Put some soft music on. Have a bottle of wine with dinner.
Need I go on???

Yes, you should tell her to turn off the smart phone and computer, too. ;)

LMAO... Yeah.
Seduction techniques should have "no texting" somewhere in the instructions.

Damn right, Smitty. This girl could say more in one look than she could in 1000 texts. Argh! These kids now-a-days! :)

He may have feelings for you, too. But he's just going at a different pace from you. He may also be shy or have issues with trusting. If you don't want to wait, then flirt with him more aggressively but not so aggressively as to turn him off. It's hard to know how much is too much and how much is not enough. But that's the name of the game.

If he's not shy or scared, then he may just not be too swift at picking up your clues. Again, you have to make the signs more obvious. Some guys are just not to good at picking up the clues. But I have to think that most young men are so driven by their hormones that they will usually see any opportunity to fulfill the needs these hormones create in their minds and other places.
