There's this girl I've been friends with for about 4 years now, and I'm really interested in her.
We've been talking quite a lot recently, and I told her about movies I thought was great, and she proposed that she come over the day after our exams to watch one.
Recently she's also asked me to help her with her personal statement (she's applying for med school) and she also called me out to lunch recently when she happened to be nearby.
Like I said, we've been talking quite a bit, and there's also been some messaging.
However, I'm not sure whether I'm just a friend (and whether the friend zone really exists for me to be stuck in it) or if there's any hope of this becoming something more. She's a really good friend, and I'd love to be more than friends.
Any opinions on whether these signs are good, and also what I can do to take our relationship further would be nice.
I'm also happy to provide any other details =)

Hm, that's tough. Girls are pretty expressive people, it's true some women can be more reserved but generally, if they are into you in a romantic way, they'll look at you a certain way or be blushy or give some sort of sign that you have piqued their interest beyond friendship signals. It's also true that when you really like someone, sometimes you see what you want to see and not what's really there, so you might also read into something too much that isn't anything. Have you noticed anything that gives you reason to be optimistic there might be a chance? If she's just asking you to help her write papers and sends you a text or talks to you every now and then, that sounds pretty uneventful. It's hard because you don't want to change the friendship if you are enjoying it as is, but if you are really that interested and think she may be up for it, see if she wants to join you for dinner. Good luck!0
