Re: Not sure what you would call this...
That all depends upon your framing and many other things but if stated with confidence, even if she is unsure, that will likely make the decision for her. However if you sound or any of your nonverbals show you aren't sure it is game over.
It is a very direct way of setting attraction and defining that you realize potential in the situation being more than just friends. It establishes that you realize and accept it to be more than a friendly interaction.
It really does serve many utilities; it shows confidence, establishes what is expected of the relationship, builds escalation and makes you different from the other guys that don't have the balls to say it.
