Original Visitor's Question from a 13-20 year old Female
I have a problem. I am an eighth grader at a 7-12 private school. I seem to have a thing for the guys in the sophomore class. Right now I like this one boy, and I think that I like him more than Iíve ever liked someone. The problem is, I donít exactly know him personally. I know who he is, and he knows who I am (because we have talked through a friend) but thatís pretty much it. I donít know why I like him so much. Heís really cute and I hear from everyone that heís a really nice guy (which he is, because I have spoken to him once online). I have his screen name, but I can never get myself to Instant Message him when he is online (because he doesnít know that I kept it from when we spoke last). My friend keeps telling me to just go for it and talk to him, but I just canít. Whenever I think about him, I get dizzy and nauseous and happy and giggly and I hate constantly feeling like that, especially because I cannot bring myself to do anything about it. I always tell myself that Iím going to talk to him (online first, not in person yet), but I always chicken out. Iíve chickened out when I tried to talk to all the other guys Iíve liked, too. I donít know why I canít do it. I just get extremely nervous and I never know what to do or say. I get afraid that heís going to think Iím just some weird kid and I donít want to get rejected. Iím trying to get myself to talk to him so we can become friends first, but Iím not sure what to do. I need help, because I hate my emotions taking over while I canít do anything about them. Can you help me think of something to say to him and just help me with my problem in general?
