Glad it's of assistance, Dawn (aka Purveyor of Posititivity). One other item that I've remembered. The way to a man's heart is through his stomach. She invited me over for the Super Bowl and made a homemade pizza, plus snacks. Let's just say I was impressed and she started to look a whole lot more attractive to me. Granted she was wearing jeans for the first time and I did look. Sorry, but it's hard not to look and I didn't stare. Anyway, that was a one-two combo with food and sex as she sat right by me on the couch and actually leaned on me, which I enjoyed........a lot. Like I say, it started out as a friendship, but through her efforts, I did start to see her in a different manner and developed romantic feelings for her. So, it can be done, but like I say you have to look for the signs from him that he'd be interested in being more than friends.
Dan, don't apologize to me for noticing that a woman is a woman and that she is attractive. Looking is a good thing, as long as you don't stare and you don't objectify. And I don't think you do, sir.
<---- Taking notes: baking food, dress in a feminine manner that shows a woman is a woman, include casual proximity and touch (in an affectionate, but innocent way.)
