Re: How do you turn a girl in your social circle into a girlfriend?
Chances are they don't see you as a potential partner... yet. So yeah, flirt with them but don't be cheesy, keep it light and fun and in my opinion it would be better to be direct. Trust me, you can still keep it light while being direct.
Remember there are two sides to this. Some of your female friends might be intimidated of the fact that you're flirting with them. That's okay though. I'm assuming you're not looking to date with all of them either. So don't be phased or feel bad about yourself if some of them reject you. If they reject you it's most probably because they got too comfortable in your friendship, not because you suck...
It's not about who I was or who I'm going to become.
It's about who I am. Do it right here, right now.
