Should I or shouldn't I ask him out? HELP! watch

    Okay so first, a bit of background. First thing is first- I'm gay. Now that's out of the way I can ask you guys's advice!

    So I started Uni in September and have made a fantastic group of friends that we all really get on in. We are always chilling together, going to clubs together etc. etc. There is one guy in the group who I have really grown to like and over christmas he- to use his phrase- "matched someone on tinder" he "potentially might start seeing". This gutted me because i've never told him how I feel about him, and i'm thinking maybe I should before things get serious between them?

    I dunno whether to ask the person in the group who speaks to him most whether or not she reckons he'd go out with me/ likes me to double check before telling him anything so I can preserve the group rapport without making it awkward between everyone by just asking him outright and getting rejected.

    I should mention he is unequivocally gay too! I'm in quite the pickle! Any help/ suggestions?

    When it comes to a friendship group you should be careful, I've been there before and it has affected things in the past. I suggest testing the waters a bit, perhaps a flirt a little with him and see how he takes it, then keep doing it to get an idea on how he sees you. If you get good vibes from him then ask him out, but only when you're sure.
