Okay. So I met this girl a few weeks ago and I think she's really awesome and she seems to think the same of me, and I read her journal and she reads mine and we see each other every weekend but since I'm really shy it's hard to start conversation (or rather, she starts them but I have a hard time encouraging them). A musician we both love is coming soon and tickets go on sale tomorrow morning. Her problem is she's broke at the moment, but she REALLY wants to go .. She posted in her journal (directed to her other friends, not me of course) about how she always buys people tickets to shows and lets them pay her back, but this one time she needs it no one is letting her. Not to mention I'd really like to take this opportunity to maybe hang out and get to know each other better.
Given the only slight relationship you have with this person (you hope to become better friends if it weren't for that stupid shy thing, which might actually be social anxiety but whatever), would you buy a ticket for her and let her pay you back? We're talking $40-$60 here.
Usually my friendships do start out with a gesture/sacrifice on my part and this seems appropriate .. But that is a lot of money.
