Something scares you. These things might worry you, but something else makes your palms sweat and your pulse hit triple digits: asking someone out on a date. It makes the remaining friendship awkward at best, humiliating at worst. Revealing romantic feelings is a risky business. Many people find a way around the risk. Or at least they think they do. So instead of asking the person on a date, you go on approximations of dates that allow for plausible deniability of all romantic intentions. You study together. You exercise together.
