Have Relationship Questions? Ask a Counselor for Answers ASAP
Hi, I'd be glad to answer your question. (My answers are intended as information and my opinion only and this is not therapy or counseling:)
Please give me just a moment to read your question.
May I ask how old you are and how old she is?
Were both 20
Ok, great. Have you guys ever had a romantic type date or experience?
Not really. We've been close for a couple of yrs but havent really talked until the past couple of days. We spent the day at hers once and she feel asleep on me, and today we went to the harry potter tour, which she really loved
We havent kissed or anything, but we have said some flirty things now and then
although most of the flirting is from me, but then she'll respond and react most of the time
I don't see it as a problem that she mentions that she finds various male celebrities to be attractive. 20 year old women are full of energy and just coming into their own sexuality, and many will comment on celebrities and how handsome they are, how their body is, etc. You, I'm sure, think the same thing when you see pictures of any of the hundreds of beautiful young actresses that litter the faces of the many magazines that can be found anywhere. Just because you are attracted to these women, it doesn't minimize your feelings for this girl. The same goes for her. She can definitely find these celebrities attractive but it has nothing to do with a lack of desire for you.
She says shes really insecure and wouldn't ask a guy out as shes too shy
Ok so it sounds like you two have had a nice friendship which is now blossoming into romance. Sometimes it is hard to break that initial ice since you've been friends for so long and it can be awkward to try to show her that you like her romantically,
I told her I llike shy and ackward people, and once felt like that too, but now Im comfortable in my own skin
and then shortly after she was describing her roommates relationship where there both shy, and she said they need someone comfortable in thier own skin to bring them out. Does that sound like a response to my answer earlier
She isn't leading me on at all, its mainly because I really like her, but thinking rationally, and sometimes I think she does fancy me, others I think I'm just stuck in the really close friend bracket
like love as a brother type thing
It sounds to me that she has definite interest in you. You'd know right away if she thought you were being "creepy" or "weird" when you flirt with her. Instead, you say she responds. My opinion would be that you have to take a chance of being rejected and take the reigns as the man and try to give her a kiss. Perhaps first you can set the stage by taking her out for a nice romantic dinner. Bring her flowers when you pick her up. Take her to a place where you guys can talk and maybe even sit side by side like in a circle booth rather than across from one another. As you progressively get more romantic with her and flirtatious, try to read her signals. If she is smiling, playing coy, playing with her hair, looking at you with intrigue, etc these are al good things. You say she is shy, so it will be you who has to make that first move. I bet she is dying for you to do so! Just be ready for her to respond since once you break down that barrier she may be very excited and eager to take your relationship to the next level.
that has helped
Should I wait a few days and she what happens before making a move
I know shes going home on tuesday so won't see her for a while
And today, she was playing with her hair a lot, and placing her body near me and aimed towards me, however she acts like that around a few other guys my age as well
You're welcome. I know it is hard to be the one to make that first move, but just believe in your heat that she likes you, she is sitting there WAITING for you to do so and all you need to do is lean in and go for it! My gut tells me she is going to give you a kiss back that knocks your sox off! Best of luck and I hope I have helped you.

I'm also not her typical type based on who she does like
Get all that out of your mind
It really sounds to me like she likes you.
Ok thanks, XXXXX XXXXX your advice then
She is waiting for a man to show initiative and prove to her that they are attracted to her. Women like to be pursued. Pursue her. Show her you like her. Put yourself at risk but at the same time in a place to be rewarded. Be confident and she will be yours.
