I know all about the friend zone etc., but in my case where both myself and my good friend are somewhat shy people who have never been in a meaningful relationship, how can I explain my feelings for her? We go out on "dates" all the time, and I've spent more money than I would've liked to already on her, so that's not a valid way to win her affection.
I know this question is asked many times, but browsing all the threads I couldn't find a formulaic method to adress my specific problem. If anyone could help me it would be greatly appreciated. <3
I'm a guy btw.
