I am in the third day of texting a girl I am attracted to for more than her looks. I have never dated before and am a senior in high school. She is a very nice person (and because of this I can't tell if she likes me back or is just being friendly) and I find that since I started texting with her she seems a little more nervous around me in person but at the same time she still initiates a few conversations with me. I want to go out with her and hopefully have things go well and keep a relationship for a long time (in other words, I would be happy with her even without sex, I just like her as a person).
I have never dated before and need to know how to take subtle steps to see if she is actually interested in me back or if I am living a fantasy. I decided to lay off the third night of texting her to see if she initiates a text chat but I am so nervous I feel like if I don't get a text tonight my efforts are in vain. How can I make it so she knows I like her and have her display approval or disapproval? Any advice on this subject is greatly appreciated, guys and gals.

If you can't go ahead and get yourself to ask her out or something forward like that, or at least not until you know more, then pay close attention to how she acts around you versus how she acts around other people. If she acts differently around you, that could be a good sign, depending on what the differences are. Seeming nervous isn't really helpful because that could go either way, but if she's exhibiting signs of attraction (dilated pupils, open body postures, touching her hair, tilting her head a little, pointing her feet toward you, you can find a list of these things on the internet quite easily) then you have a green light. Good luck!0
