Girl, stop right there and think about it for a second. You see him all the time. What if things don't end up working between you two? That's right, it will be awkward. Let me clarify: it will be awkward because you won't be able to avoid him.
In my sophomore year, there was a guy who lived a staircase away, who for better or worse led me on for the better part of a month and a half. I saw him every single day and there was flirting and cuddling involved. I won't get into details, but one day he just stopped talking to me. You probably know what a douche move this is, but consider this: I still had to see him every single day. If I never had to see him again, I would have just let it go. Considering I had to see him all the time, I confronted him (like the desperate romantic I was, I believed he would at least give me an explanation - he didn't.) The worst part, however, was that we had mutual friends. I couldn't just blow by him in the halls; we all still hung out together sometimes. And there he was, flirting with a different girl right in front of my face. It sucked.
In the end, he apologized and I got over it, but was a ridiculously awkward few months and I ended up growing apart from our mutual friends. If you're willing to take the risk, go for it, but take a moment to think about it before you plunge into what could be an awkward few months.
