I talk with this guy all time. We even hang out and do stuff. We are always laughing and having fun. We hang out all the time. The thing is, I don’t know if he sees me as a potential girlfriend or if I am just his hang out and chill buddy. I really like him but I don’t know how to approach this. I don’t want him to think that I don’t want to be his chill friend anymore but at the same time I really like him.
He may see you as a potential girlfriend but is worried about the exact same thing you are. He may be worried that if he let you know how he feels, he may lose you as his friend. He may be playing it safe because of that. It is best that you give him some strong hints that you like him as his potential girlfriend. This may give him the courage to take things to the next level with you.
