So there's this girl I like. I was in two classes with her until just recently. We talked a lot in class and I got her number/snapchat, and we have talked about a lot of different things. I text her right now no more than one a week and we still see each other fairly often but conversation is more limited and shallow. I have a hard time thinking of ways to initiate good conversations without having classes with her, but nonetheless I feel like we've gotten to know each other pretty well for only a few months of interaction. All this taken into consideration I think I'd have a pretty good chance of getting a date with her. Here's the kicker though: she was dating a guy she was best friends with for years since July, and they broke up about six weeks ago. However they're talking again and hang out a lot, and a lot of people think they're going to date again and they practically are right now. I would really like to start hanging out with her outside of school and working my way towards a relationship, but with him in the way I feel like I hardly stand a chance. I am friends with a lot of her friends so a screw-up would really hurt my social life. We were talking right before the new semester started and agreed that we should hang out sometime but it was left sort of ambiguous after that. So I guess my question is how can I get her to be interested in me and hang out with me from where the situation is at right now? Any help is appreciated and the faster the better, because once they're officially dating I have no chance for a really long time. Thanks!
