Consider What Dating Her Would Be Like
If you aren’t quite ready to reveal your feelings but you do want to start thinking about moving forward, consider what a more serious relationship with her would be like. Do the two of you have conflicted schedules or interests? What’s her personal life like now? Would your friends and family get along or approve? You should really consider if either of you can handle a committed relationship with one another before proceeding with trying to make that happen. Sometimes, no matter how strongly you feel about someone, being in a committed relationship with them is not a smart idea.
Determine If A Relationship Is Right For You
Besides knowing how the two of you would be together, you need to know if you can handle a relationship right now. If you have a very busy work schedule, or if you’re fresh out of a serious relationship, right now may not be the best time to act on any feelings you may have. Consider your lifestyle and how it would impact any type of commitment you may try to make to anyone.
Think About The Impact
Can you take rejection? If she says no to your advances, will you be able to recover and continue the relationship? If you don’t feel you can have a relationship with her after being rejected by her, seriously think about if she’s worth losing altogether because she could say “no” to you.
Tell Her How You Feel
This doesn’t have to be some big, dramatic, over-the-top Hollywood style scene. You can tell her how you feel casually and see how she reacts. Mention to her over dinner that you have been thinking about her a lot lately and you’d like to start seeing her more, if she’s willing to move the relationship forward. That’s all you have to say to know where she stands on having a more committed relationship with you.
When you’re having a casual fling, it sometimes leads to deeper feelings. If you are ready to act on those feelings think about how telling her about your emotions could harm what you two already have and if it’s even the right thing to do. Lifestyles, needs, wants, and differing opinions can all make for a situation that isn’t conducive to a serious relationship and that should be consider before you jump the gun.
