I need a perspective from anybody who has been friends with someone for awhile and then that friendship grew into a relationship, and how the threshold of friendship and relationship was crossed?
I am sort of in a similar situation where I am good friends with a girl that has been homeschooled her whole life, she is going to school next year and we are good friends and she has shown signs that she likes me but I am not sure if I should make a move or stay as a friend for now, thats why I want to know others perspective who were in a similar case?

I was friends with my current boyfriend throughout most of highschool till last year, so for 7 years or so. We ran into each other at university, and started spending a lot of time together pretty much everyday. We got along great with the conversation still flowing completely effortlessly.
After a month or so of that, I noticed he started getting noticeably more interested in learning about me, asking question after question. He got a bit more touchy too, like hugging from behind and holding it a bit longer. Soon he asked me out, which I declined out more out of shock than anything. That was my first relationship that started as friends, so I thought I like him only on a platonic level. I soon realized I was wrong, and started becoming more flirty as well as touchy. Standing and sitting closer and closer to him, testing the waters in a sense to see if he'd pull back.
A week or two of that before I asked him where he stood in regards to me and sure enough we're still together 9 months later. Don't be too worried about potential outcomes. It can only result in two things; she declines your offer, which would be unfortunate but at least you'll be able to start moving on sooner. If she accepts, then I guess both parties win. :)0
