I think at this point I have made leaps and strides from who I used to be. I learned from the best although I wasn't following his every whim but how could I when I just had 0 confidence. I was a chubby kid up until sophomore year of HS so I had no luck with the girls. But since I began working out and got fit- now muscular, things have changed a bit. I still am a virgin though...I thought I'd have changed that before HS was up...and then the first week of college...and now I am leaving my first month of college. I feel like I just have never been able to escalate things with girls...I'd say I am a pretty interesting guy who is at least pretty good looking and with the help of my friend a bit of a charmer but I am always too much of a pussy to take a leap of faith. I make excuses that it is never the right time to just lean in for the kiss so most of the time I had to get lucky with getting the kiss to happen in the past. A girl would have to nearly throw herself at me.
So can you guys help me? My friend who gets more than anyone I know just tells me that I am in college so I shouldn't even have to ask her to go to dinner with me or something, just get her up to your room and hit it. And to let them initiate the physicality...(i.e. say I almost think you're cute and then she'll start looking at you in that way and things will go down) but I just don't see that happening.
And what would you guys do about girls on your floor? I was thinking of telling a girl "Come watch a movie with me" as my friend has suggested too but I don't know how on earth I'd escalate that to kissing and then I'd hope to finally lose the v-card that night too...I think it is easy enough when you are already on a bed to get shit popping.
tl;dr how do I escalate from talking to kissing?
