How do you turn a platonic friendship into a relationship?

Cupid’s Advice:

Stepping out of the friend zone and into a hot relationship is actually a leap.  Here are some tips on how to jump without falling:

 1. Drop hints: While hanging out with the friend you have feelings for, come clean about how you feel about them.  Try making it into a joke, and see how they react.  Say, “Hey, how crazy would it be if we dated?”  Judging by their response, you will have an idea of whether or not to pursue your feelings.

2. Go on a date: Ask your friend on date. Asking them to give things a try is a lot different than committing to a relationship.  Or, take your crush out as a friend and at the end point out that it was a date. See how they react. Try something out of the “friend zone.” Rather than burgers, go to an intimate restaurant and pay for dinner.

3. Make a move: If you think your friend will go for it, jump right in and make a move.  Have a fun, have some drinks, flirt a little and then spring the idea of you becoming a couple.
