I think you should befriend them with them knowing you want something more than a friendship.
So, get to know them, but if you've liked them since day one, let them know that.1

Ok I have litteraly zero experience with dating so take my opinion with a grain of salt. Personally for guys I think starting off as friends is a bad idea. Of course there are cases where it works but for the most part I think it's a waste. Think about it... how often do you see girls posting questions about how to get their platonic male friend to want more?
Not very often, right. You're much more likely to see girls asking about how to get their friends with benefits to want more.
I believe that just like girls often hurt themselves by becoming sexual too soon, I believe guys hurt themselves by waiting too long to express sexual interest.
like I said, just my opinion 😕1
