And after really dissecting a few of my friends, I've discovered that the launching board from friends to MORE all starts with a simple step.
But how do you get to this stage which can launch you into so much more?
Simple, you talk to them. How? You need to find a common connection any common connection least favorite movie, worst hamburger you ever had, a similar guilty pleasure and run with it. From a connection can come a spark and from a spark can come anything. It doesn't matter if you're looking for just a cuddle buddy or a booty call or a fiancé at this stage. To get to your goal you need to first break down the barrier of communication and get on it. If you don't have their phone number, facebook them and talk to them that way.
WARNING: DO NOT BE CREEPY STALKER BOY/GIRL.
Unless they are sitting right behind you in class (actually happened to me) and can see you creeping (also called reconnoissance) and can give you a commentary via facebook messenger while you dish shit back at them for the horrible picture of a monkey in their crotch (again really happened), then DON'T stalk them. Friend them, send a flirty message (always start out on a flirty foot otherwise they wont know that you're interested, and people if someone sends you a flirty message and you're not interested DON'T send a flirty message back. Common sense here), and let it rest; do not sit in front of your computer/phone waiting for the response. Go out, enjoy life. Life is too short to spend it waiting on someone to respond.
This is an imperative step, because you will need stuff to talk about and if you just sit on the couch all day watching Gossip Girl, and they don't like Gossip Girl; then you my friend are up shit creek without a paddle.
