I really like one of my closest friends, who is also gay, however she's just come out of a relationship and I don't want to come on too strong because I don't know it it'll even be reciprocated, I don't want to do anything that'll potentially ruin the friendship but I honestly think I could make her really happy, and she deserves that more than anyone
okay give her time to get over the break up.. but you can try to get closer to her. let her see that you care about her and that you feel something for her. Get closer get to know her better. Let her feel loved when she is with you. try to flirt with her and look how she reacts to it. Take the time with her and see how it goes.
