A guy recently made it clear that he was interested in me but I immediately turned him down saying that we could be friends. Anyway we've been talking a lot and Im starting to realize that I may like him, I'm not 100% sure and I don't know how to unfriend zone him and show him that he does have a chance
Thanks for all the replys but I'm kind of a shy person and straight up telling him I like him or asking him out is a hard thing to do.
if anyone is interested, i told his friend i thought he was cute, then he asked for my number, so that seems like a step forward
The thing about being coy and indirect is that you have already EXPLICITLY told him that you are not at all interested, so if you start flirting and being cute with him he will get pissed off and/or confused. It will look like you're indecisive or using him for an ego boost. If you want him you need to straight up tell him. I know it isn't easy but it wasn't easy for him either and he did it
Tell him, don't do it through flirting or "signals" unless you want to confuse him/make him angry at you. Literally tell him, or kiss him and tell him you changed your mind because you started liking him when you got to know him better (so he knows you're not a crazy girl who can't make up her mind and that you're not playing games with him).
Whatever you do, DO NOT play with his emotions. Be blunt and respectful. Tell him straight up "I wasn't sure if I was attracted to you at first, but now I feel like I am. And I want to take you out on a date."
