So my two roommates and I have been hanging out with our female neighbors for quite some time now (about 7 months). It seems like one of the girls (lets call her Jessica) and I have really good chemistry. She laughs at all my jokes and seems extra flirty towards me compared to my other roommates. We also have a lot in common. The way I know I really like her is that I have never really fantasied about us doing anything physical; I just think about us holding hands and talking. The reason I haven't asked her out yet is because I'm really bad at this stuff, and also I'm worried I might ruin the friendship we already have.
One of my roommates already has a girlfriend, but it seems like my other roommate (lets call him Mike) might like Jessica as much as I do, which is a lot. Although I don't show it, it really angers me how Mike talks about Jessica when she's not around. Even when she is around he talk about all the girls he's "hooked up" with. To me, it seems like talking about that stuff would be a major turn off to a girl, but what do I know. Mike is a good guy; I just think he feels he needs to impress the guys by saying stuff like this.
Anyway, I guess I'm saying that when I ask this girl out, which will be the next time I get a chance to talk to her alone, I'm going to feel really good inside because Mike won't be able to say those things about her. I know it is weird that this bothers me so much, but I just think it is interesting because I haven't even gotten romantically involved with this girl yet, and I already feeling protective.
So hopefully, I'll be able to asked her out in the coming days. Any advice for dating in college would be appreciated and wish me good luck.
