So I have this friend “Carter”. He’s 3 years older than me and next year he is going to be a senior at College of the Ozarks, where I want to attend in the fall. While I was at my interview at C of O, he actually gave us a tour of the campus and showed me the buildings that most of my classes will be in as well as other important buildings on campus. I messaged him on Facebook the nught after the tour and thanked him again and he reassured me that it wasn’t a big deal and that he hoped that I got into C of O. I’ve had a crush on Carter ever since we met at youth group 6 years ago, but that crush has deinitley grown stronger as of late. He has every attribute that I’m looking for in a future husband. The only bad thing is that when so much as looks in my direction, I completlely melt on the inside! It’s so hard to focus on the conversation when I’m daydreaming about the possible future with him. If I get accepted into C of O next year, I will definitely be seeing more of him. Do y’all have any advice moving forward as to help me gain more confidence to talk to him, or maybe even get up the courage to tell him how I really feel, or just how to grow into a deeper friendship with him. Thanks so much y’all. God bless!

I hope you get accepted into College of the Ozarks as well! I was looking to go there, but I went a different direction instead. It’s definitely a great choice! And aaaahhh its so exciting that you found a guy that is perfect for you 🙂 I hope it works out and you get accepted and fall in love and get married on a beach and have perfect attractive children! Just leave this in God’s hands and if he’s right for you it will happen naturally.
But that doesn’t mean you don’t have to put any effort into the relationship. First what you should do is try to get to know him. Do you talk regularly? If not, strike up a conversation soon. I know it’s awkward to just be like “hey hows it going” so maybe ask him an “important” question about college? Even if you know the answer, he doesnt have to know. Then from there, try to keep the small talk going. If he also puts effort into the small talk and conversation, then things are going great! If not, then maybe wait awhile before you message him again so you don’t seem desperate, or so you don’t irritate him. If keeps conversation going and you guys have a great conversation and talk about other things than the question you asked him, I would say it is okay to randomly message him sometimes and be like “hey how are you, by the way thanks for answering my question the other day” and go from there to normal conversation.
One of my favorite flirty, get to know someone conversation topics is the question game. It’s a great way to get to know someone and be a little flirty without sounding ridiculous. Basically it goes like this :you ask him a question, can be about anything serious or non serious, he answers your question, then has to ask a different one about you. I like this game because its a great way to get to know someone on a deeper level than small talk, and its a great way to keep things casual. Hope my advice works!! 😀

Also, I read an awesome article yesterday and it works perfectly with the question game….so I’m just gonna leave this here and remind you to keep these things in mind 😉

Thank you for your sweet post. 🙂 I really appreciate it! We talk a little, but not all the time. When he’s in town we talk, but not so much when he’s back at school. I really fell in love with College of the Ozarks so I really hope that I can get in. Thank you so much for believing in me, even though you don’t really know me. God bless you! After I thanked him for the tour we kinda talked about some other C of O stuff, but I felt bad because his undefeated intramural basketball team lost the night I messaged him and for some reason I told myself that it was my fault. I felt really bad, but then we talked after that and he messaged me back so I didn’t feel bad anymore. Thanks for the hints and tips about the question game. It sounds like a good idea! Sounding desperate and irritating him is one of my biggest fears. He’s so perfect that he could any girl in the world, and I just don’t want him to get upset with me or resent me. Thanks a lot! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
