How do I avoid coming on too strong with my crush? watch

    So really really like this guy. Basically I met him once last year then again on a night out but I was really drunk and was all over him and embarrassed myself. Then after that I blanked him wherever I went because I was so embarrassed by the whole ordeal and didn't want him to know I liked him.
    We're on the same course at uni. Anyway so a couple of days ago I met him again at a society meeting and we talked a bit there but it was mostly in a group not one to one. I still felt a bit awkward but anyway today I saw him in lectures as he had come and sat a row behind me with his friends and at the end of the lecture as I finished packing up I turned around and saw him and was like hi and we talked a bit.
    But I don't want to come on too strong with him and to be honest at this point I would rather we were just friends anyway. So what shall I do??????

    Just act like a friend then, there's no need to force it. Don't flirt, just brush off compliments or flirting, essentially just treat him like a friend.

    Just keep doing what you're doing then. Don't make him important, always have or at least act like you've got more important stuff on your mind/to get on with.
