Most Helpful Guy
It sounds to me like you were way too veiled when you asked if he "liked you." You definitely were not on the same page. You needed to clarify that you meant romantic interest. It sounds to me like he's just not into you romantically and you put him on the spot and made things awkward. You definitely didn't do yourself any favors by "telling him to take you out." It sounds to me like you owe him an apology for just calling him out and you need to have an honest conversation with him about how you feel about eachother. If you can't do that after an episode like this then your relationship will likely just be awkward from this day forward.
