So here's the story...
I have recently aquired a new female friend that I had been aquainted with (coworkers) a few years back. We bumped into each other randomly and started hanging out, eventually becoming really good friends. Initially I lightly gamed her to keep her as a potential option for later, and to avoid being LJBF'd. There is a lot of sexual tension between us, and the idea of hooking up has actually come up in conversation once or twice.
A few things of note:
-She is not a relationship kind of girl. She tends to only have FWBs and rarely commits to an actual boyfriend/girlfriend scenario.
-I know for a fact that she is attracted and interested, because she has expressed it both with subtle IOI's and blatant, casual comments like, "I'm pretty sure/wouldn't be surprised if we fuck sometime".
-I also know I've reached a sticking point because of her hesitation due to our friendship and how close we are. Another casual, quasi-logical statement from her might give you some insight: "I think we just need to get drunk enough to fuck the first time, then it won't be awkward any time after that."
-She may also be apprehensive because she is both attracted to me and really enjoys my companionship, and therefore risks developing romantic feelings for me, which works against her preference for no-strings-attached relationships.
So far, I think I've done pretty well with building attraction and avoiding the friendzone. I've refused to listen to her issues with other guys or submit to any other asexual friend behavior, and I've used a few LJBF destroyers with success.
My question is, how do I get past this sticking point? I don't want to just say, "Look, we're getting drunk tonight and we're going to fuck" because that would blow it, wouldn't it? I'm considering a small takeaway/freezeout - couple weeks or so - to make her rethink her apprehension, but I dunno if that is a good starting point or not.
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
