Me and this girl are going on a trip together for school. We’ve been getting together off and on for a bit now, but nothing too serious. I think during this trip something will happen but I don’t know if the feelings are reciprocated. What should I do? Is this even the best time to do it? Please help.
Dealing with your love life in college can be a mess, and this is no exception. Even when things seem casual, feelings can develop, and make everything more confusing.
You asked if this was the best time to try and take things a step further, and the answer is probably not. If you don’t know if the feelings are mutual, there is a chance that the rest of the trip will be awkward for you if you get shot down.
Take time to have a conversation with her before or wait until after the trip, but don’t do it on the trip. And remember that it’s okay if she doesn’t feel the same way and isn’t ready for that next step.
