Sex & the Single Woman: And So It Begins

So there is this guy.

We met a few weeks ago, the chemistry started sizzling, life was good. I see him occasionally, but really just in passing. This does not sit well with me.

I’m not in a hurry to jump into a relationship, but at the same time I don’t want to drop the ball. We know a lot of the same people, which is definitely a good thing, but I don’t know if they know that we’ve talked as much as we have. In other words, our sudden BFFness could be really random to them.

So here is the question I am posing. Ladies, what is a casual way to hang out with someone to test the waters? I am perpetually scared of scaring people off by coming on too strong, but aren’t we all?

Should I just lay it all out there and take a risk or is it better to wait and see where things go?
