I Want Our Flirting To Turn Into Something More

I love waking up to your texts and falling asleep waiting for another one. I love play fighting with you and throwing sarcasm your way. I love sitting so close to you that our shoulders brush and finding any excuse to touch each other.

I have fun flirting with you. But I want that flirting to turn into something more. I want to start a real relationship with you. I want you to become my official boyfriend.

You already know that I like you. It’s obvious. And from the way you’ve been acting, it seems like you like me, too. So why is it taking so long for us to take the next step?

Why do we keep complimenting each other, putting our hands on each other, making it clear that we’re attracted to each other, but never doing anything about it? Why do we keep playing pretend when it’s so obvious what we should do next?

I don’t want to end up in an almost relationship. I don’t want to end up regretting keeping you as a friend instead of trying to turn you into something more.

As much as I love flirting with you, I’m starting to get impatient. I want to take things to the next level. I don’t want to be stuck in the same place forever.

We’re having fun right now, but it’s hard for me to enjoy it properly when I keep wondering where it’s all going to lead. Are you going to ask me to be your girlfriend? Are you going to keep stringing me along as only a friend? Are you going to break my heart?

I just want to know that all of the flirting we’ve been doing has meant something to us both. I want to know that you feel the same way that I do, that you want the same things I want.

I want to know that you daydream about waking up next to me and taking me home to your family and holding hands in your living room, the same way that I do. I want to know that you can image a future where we’re together — and are eager to create that future.

I want to know that you haven’t been using me as a way to pass the time until another girl shows up. I want to know that you haven’t been flirting with me for the hell of it, because you have nothing better to do. I want to know that you haven’t been hoping you could use me for one night and then give your goodbyes.

I haven’t been flirting with you for any of those reasons. I’ve been doing it because I genuinly like you. Because I want to get closer to you. Because I want you to stick around for a long time.

I want our flirting to turn into something more. I want you to turn into something more.

I hate that you’re still technically just a friend right now when everyone knows we should be more. I hate that it’s taking us so long to kickstart this thing between us. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
