If you're looking to go from crushing to smashing with a friend, the way you flirt is actually not all that different than how you would with a stranger or someone you're still getting to know.So if you are already comfortable flirting, this should be easy.
Well, there's always the direct route: telling them straight up how you feel. It can just be something like, "hey, I'm kind of catching feelings here... " Just be sure that, before you make any declarations, your'e ready for the possibility that they just want to maintain your relationship as it already is.
It's how you subtly tell them you'd like to change the dynamic of your relationship, while still testing the waters.
It's also a position that’s easy to back off of, should you get the message they just want to be friends, without putting the friendship at any real risk.
That's why so many successful relationships start off as friendships.
However, making that transition from friendship to something "more" is not without its challenges.
