It seems like the general consensus from my last question is that guys do like it when girls make the first move. But how do we go about asking for their number or asking them out, etc? How can we avoid awkwardness if things go south? Please leave your opinions down below!

If you're not sure whether he likes you back, try to let him know your intentions without coming across as a stalker. I wouldn't recommend spilling all your feelings and asking for his number in one setting. If anything that will diminish your chances of winning him over. Instead, stay friends for the time being and gradually as you become closer it will become easier to ask him out. Who knows? He might accept. Guys are much more willing to accept a date with a girl he knows well.
Now if you know he likes you, you've won half the battle already. Tell him that you like him, and tell him that if he wants to, you would love to go out with him. He may be a little intimidated, but generally speaking if a guy likes you he will accept an invitation like that from the girl he likes.
If you ask him out and he rejects you, don't feel bad. He probably has a valid reason, and if not he's not worth your time or energy, and in which case you should move on. This doesn't mean you can't be his friend, but respect his wishes and don't push it. Not only will it diminish your chances of landing a date with him in the future but it may end your friendship altogether.
In the event that things get awkward, don't worry. He's probably just as nervous as you. But, you can't always avoid it. Instead, embrace it. It's not the end of the world, and in personal experience some guys like girls that get nervous around them.
Hope this helps!0
