Ok so theres this guy I like and I'm thinking about asking him out but I want to give some backstory and see what you guys think about the entire situation.
Ok So this guy is really good friends with the girls who live directly across the hall from me in my dorm. He lives in the same dorm as us but he just lives upstairs. I'm about 90% sure that he is gay. I'm also pretty sure that he knows I'm gay. I wear a rainbow bracelet, I'm the seceretary for the LGBT club, and I've had flyers for it on my door.
I've caught him checking me out a few times, one time it was blatantly obvious and my straight guy friend even caught on. Me and my friend were walking to my dorm room and the guy was sitting on a couch we had to walk by I noticed that he was there because I felt someone looking at me and I looked at him and sure enough he was. We shared eye contact for a second, and I looked forward but he was still looking and even went so far as to turn his head towards me as I passed. I told my friend that I think he likes me and he even commented that he saw him looking.
Another time I was writing something on the whiteboard on my door, and he walked out of his friends room and saw me. He just froze there when he saw me. Then he turned right around and was about to walk back inside his friends room, but I think his friends gave him shit nonverbally then he turned around again and walked out with his head down looking at the floor. I thought that it was the cutest thing ever.
Ok so before I hadn't really done anything to encourage him or discourage him. I've made it a point to smile or wave at him when I see him around campus. I sent him a friend request on facebook to try to see if he would talk more in real life with me. We've never been formally introduced, I'm on small talk terms with his friends who live across from me. I've tried making small talk with him but he gets a little quiet or sometimes I think he makes it a point that he doesn't look at me to make it look like he's staring or too interested.
I don't know much about his personality, I like the people he hangs out with but we haven't had much interaction ourselves.
Anyways, I think I'm just gonna flat out ask him out. I'm just gonna go up to him when I see him, formally introduce myself, tell him that I think that he's cute, and that I'd like to take him on a date.
I usually try to get talking with someone before I do anything but that doesn't really seem to work. My last boyfriend was the one who started talking with me.
Ok so do you guys think that this is a good idea this is the first time that I just flat out ask someone without getting to know them first.
