I like the restaurant idea that, *Aret suggested and I would take her someplace that either she has never been or to a place that both of you have never been to. it will make the experience special because it'll be a place that when she sees she'll think of you. if by this point she hasn't really said anything much ask her what she thinks about you. (if you want to be bold).
it is very very simple, ask "will you go out with me" that's it. push the words out or do what my bf did and type it on ur phone, or u can write it in a note. a note is cute and you can doodle on it if u want but just ask. people ask me "how do i ask her?" all the time this works best
I've been in an awkward situation like that. (Not exactly but similar.) If she's already considering the other guy, you're setting yourself up for failure. In all likelihood she already knows your feelings but knows you'll wait around with your insecurities. Meanwhile she'll explore. Sure is convenient that you wait until she's less available to make your move eh?
My advice? Make your moves quicker next time. Straight up ask for a date, and don't wait around for someone else to pick up your prize.
In my situation, I, like you, waited until my crush met someone else who he hit it off with. Then I let him know my feelings. And surprise! The other girl won. They're married now. Kids, house, the like. I wish them the best of luck and all that, but it sure was embarrassing having the "I have feelings for you" conversation when it was obvious he was comparing us. And the friendship never recovered after I invested all those emotions into the crush. Que sera.
There's a chance you'll win. Most likely I'd say not. If you were anything other than the comfy familiar Plan B, you two would be dating already. Most likely she'll continue with the dude if she likes him, and then afterwards look to you for comfort if/when they break up. And you'll be there, won't you? She knows that too, trust me.
Granted, at this point you can do two things. Ask her out and hope for the best, with the idea that at least she knows and the sooner you can start getting over, the better. Or, you can wait to see what happens with dude then make your move after. But one way or the other, don't invest more emotion into it than you have to. It only creates drama.
No movies. You want somewhere you can talk to her. The best thing to do is just say, "hey, wanna go out on a date this weekend?" or whatever. Call it a date when you ask her out. Have a plan in mind too, like pick a restraunt and ask her to dinner there or something.
