Chances are he might not and you might be waiting for awhile.. so if you both are sure with your feels then ask him out. I'm sure he will like that
i get what your saying but think of it how a guy looks at it, if he says something too soon, then she might run, or say something like well I just want to keep it casual or worse well I don't know this is going to fast and maybe we should just be friends. I am in the same situation I like this girl, she likes me, we talk on the phone pretty much every night, and I want her to be my girlfriend but I don't know if she wants that just yet, so the best thing for a guy to do would be to wait for her to say something, like so wheres this going, or do you like me as your gf.
I hate this about girls, look. There isn't a written law that says, "the guy has to ask the girl out" if the guy is too shy to ask you out, and you like him and he obviously likes you, break the ice and ask him out. Its not going to kill you.
