I have a crush on a friend of mine, but struggle to show him how I feel. I don't want to make him too uncomfortable, but want to be clearer about where I stand since we are both a bit awkward with each other. Lately, we've gotten together one-on-one more than usual, and I do feel there's chemistry and shared attraction. Recently, after hanging out together, we hugged goodbye. Then, feeling unusually bold, I leaned in and kissed his cheek. It seems that not even a full second passed before my anxiety kicked in--I got embarrassed, pulled my face away from his, and felt like I had to get out of the situation. I think I surprised him. His response has left me stumped, though I'm not sure what I should expect given my odd behavior. He smiled big and thanked me for the kiss, but I was already moving away from him when he said he'd see me in a few days. I smiled at him and could only get out a "good night" before departing very quickly. What do you all think: I know I could have handled this better, but did I totally screw things up?
