Best Answer

I don't think that most shy guys who get up the nerve to show interest just want to be friends. Take the initiative yourself if you like the guy to go to the next level. It might be just the push he needs out the door. Just be gentle if you find you don't like the turtle after you get him out of his shell. Otherwise, some lucky gal down the road might miss out on a great catch.

What's the difference between a guy being funny and teasing you to be friends or more than friends?

When he only wants to be friends, he will tease you until you become better friends. Once good friends, he will trust you will information, maybe about a girl he likes or his beliefs. If he wants to be more than friends, he will keep teasing you and trying to be with you.

If you already know she only wants to be friends there is really no point putting yourself in the position of feeling the rejection of her expressing she only wants to be friends after you put yourself out there. Accept her friendship with open arms and don't push things. If you find you cannot be around her because of your feelings take some time and give yourself some space from her than you may find in the future you will be able to be friends again as you have sorted out your feelings where she is concerned.
