I'm in the last month of my freshman year of college. There's this guy that I've had a crush on for several months. We met at the beginning of this semester in January, and I have been thinking that he will ask me out, but he hasn't.
He's always texting me to see how I'm doing, always asking me questions about my life and listens in fascination; he offers to do things for me like cook me dinner and paid for my dinner at a restaurant even after I insisted he didn't.
We're in a class together, so we see each other a few times a week and often more to eat dinner together now and then. When we were apart for a week during Spring Break, he kept saying that he missed me.
Now, there's only a month left before summer hits. I go to college on the East Coast and I'm from the West. He's an international student from Asia, so we'll be far apart in a month, although he is most likely staying at school to do research (I'll probably go home).
I've been thinking about asking him out, but I have never done so before. (I actually have never even gone out on a date.) This is the first guy I've really liked. What should I do?
