I’ve been into this guy for a while now, but two months back I found out he was gay and it turned from an idle interest into a full blown crush. We hang out and are fairly good friends at this point, but every time we get drunk we end up hanging out for hours, sometimes holding hands, and often kissing. In the morning though everything turns to being normal and we’re just friends again. I don’t know what to do, we have class together and the course we take is very collaborative so I really don’t want to make things awkward if I ask him out and he says no, but I’m just really into him and I don’t know what I should do. Should I just suck it up and ask him out already or just let things evolve at the pace they’re going? I’m sure if things continue like this we’re gonna have to talk about it, even if our friends make us, but I can’t help feeling like I’m missing time I could just be dating him.
