Ok, so remember that friend that had the problem with the girl? I wrote a card about it <<HERE>>
Essentially he kept hanging out with this girl and nothing was really happening. They never kissed or talked about dating, etc. But they hung out a LOT, and he really liked her.
BUT ok here's what happened. I gave him some of the advice you all lovely people gave me, told him to be straight forward and ask her if she's into him or not. And what he would like to see out of the relationship.
And she was totally confused! She only thought they were hanging out as friends, and didn't understand that he liked her. Oops. He told me that he still plans on hanging out with her as a friend (that's good). But will look for a romantic interest elsewhere.
Well, at least that was cleared up.
