    I'm a shy 18yo girl, not particularly pretty or popular, and really interested in this guy at school but he's two years younger than me, very awkward but super mature. I've known him for a while and we've talked a bit so you could probably say we are friends.

    Now his friends are trying to set him up with someone and they asked me - do I say yes or not? They want to set us up on a blind date but when I talked to him about it, he said that his friends were pushing him into it and he wasn't keen on the idea bc it would be really awkward. Should I ask him on a date as if I as pretending to "help him get used to the idea"?

    Any help or advice would be appreciated!
    I know I sound like another silly obsessed teenager but I really like this guy and I hate the idea that he could be going on a date with someone else...

    personally, I think its the guy who should always ask the girl out, but if you really like this guy then go for it, maybe just discuss it with him and ask to hang out instead, so that it sounds more chilled out also if he is just basing you on looks then it isn't worth your time, as you should find a guy who likes you for not only your looks, and popularity definitely shouldn't matter! try be confident and just take it slowly if he feels things are being rushed!

    all the best!

    Is the guy shy too? He is probably feeling that you, being two years older, wouldn't want to really go out w/ him. Why did his friends chose you for the 'blind' date? Perhaps its because he has expressed interest about you to them and they are trying to make something happen. Then when you brought it up he said he thought it would be awkward because he was covering for himself assuming you wouldn't really want to go out with him. Anyway, I'm just guessing at a scenario. Sounds like you two have a connection though so I would definitely pursue getting together with him. I agree with ^Izzy that it would be best if it was something casual. If his friends are the ones who approached you about the date then let them know you're up for getting together with him (casually) - then hope they help you out behind the scenes and encourage the guy to go.
    ****But - I hope you know his friends well enough to know that they are being sincere and not playing some kind of a hurtful game***

    No, because you aren't in a really bad 90s Romcom. If you want to go out with him ask him. The worst he can do is say no.
