So my freshman year of high school I met this guy in my stake.
He was a senior at the time and I was smitten. Four years later and I’m a freshman at BYU and he's returned from serving a faithful mission.
He's been home for almost a year already and every day I find myself liking him even more. We talk quite often on campus and each time I leave just so happy.
Honestly, I REALLY like him.
The only problem is that I've never dated anyone and I've only been on a few dates so I have no idea what I'm supposed to do now!
My friends keep telling me that I should ask him on a date but I don't want to embarrass myself. I don't think he would say no, I just don't seem to have the courage to do it.
I'm pretty sure that he's as close to perfect as they come but I just don't know what to do!
Well . . . the first thing you need to do is breathe. One cannot act rationally if one is not calm.
Secondly, take him off the pedestal. He's not perfect, and I don't want you to be disappointed or discouraged with you get to know the real guy; infatuation and fantasy cloud our thinking (regardless of how fun they are).
Third, your friends are wrong. If you ask him out you're going to insult his manhood and possibly scare him away. Instead, what you need to do is get him to ask you out. Subtle, perhaps, but much more effective.

You've got to jump from where you are now to letting him know you're romantically interested.
And, know this: if you don't act, you may always regret it. Especially when find out he's marrying a girl who made the move you were afraid to make.
Good luck, and keep us posted!
