So friends have asked why I haven't thought about dating a friend. This opened my eyes to what a great person she is and now I wonder why I've never thought her like that before. The problem is I feel like I'm the nice innocent guy in her eyes. I've never once flirted with her and have no idea if she has ever thought of me in another context other than friends. How do I test the waters to see if there is potential? Or is too late and flirting would be awkward?
