I went on a date with this guy (17) and we really went along well with each other. He paid for the dinner (160$!!!) which not everybody would do just for a random person in my eyes and we met up with his friends after dinner. Then he had a lot to study so we didn’t see each other for 2 weeks. He then texted me if I wanted to go to a club with him and I did. He was there with his friends which I didn’t know at all so I was basically alone but he never left my side and really tried to make it as comfortable for me as possible. We then went to his house but we did NOT have sex (just making out) which shows me that he wasn’t just out for that. He then had to go to a different country for 3 weeks as an exchange so we didn’t see each other for 3 weeks and when he came back he texted me once when he was drunk saying that I should come there where he was etc.
Now I’m Wondering
I once talked to his friend about it and he said that he told him that he likes me. Somehow all of these things that happened are signs that he’s interested but on the other hand, I’m scared that I’m interpreting things wrongly. Are those signs that he likes me? And should it now be my turn to ask him if he wanted to see me again? I’m so scared to get rejected which is why I never ever text him first but should I do that?
