So I am usually a confident and out going woman but when it come's to face-to-face situations like these, I am a shy baby. I like this guy in my school and we get along, he's funny and has great taste in music. My friend C told me that he likes me and would date me. Should I approach him first and tell him I like him, or should I wait for him to come to me?
I know it sounds simplistic but go for it - Now I am by no means a super confident guy and I have crushed as hard as the next person but anytime I liked someone I have gone for it. I had some magical successes and some letdowns (Note the word letdowns I will come back to it). Look it this way, I am shy, does she like me or maybe she doesn't like me, should I wait for spring for daisy to pick the petals off in a game of she loves me/she loves me not, unless you are keeping something from us, you are not a mind reader. So months of this or talk to him what could happen Best case scenario some form of dating, Worse case a LETDOWN unless he is a complete jerk he will turn you down gently, you will feel crappy for a few days but will bounce back. Anyway if he sees the impressive young girl we see on GaG I think you will have every chance of success.
This is important. If that's an essential quality in a man for you, then you CANNOT do the approaching. If you do, it will poison the relationship, because you won't be able to get that out of your head.
That doesn't mean you can't manipulate the hell out of the situation, but, yeah.
Y'know those carnival machines, where you have to use the claw to pick up the stuffed animal? Think of it like that. You can position the stuffed animal right at the edge of the thingy, but HE still has to use the claw.
Go for it, if he likes you thats a big plus and i suggest actually going and talking to him. Better do it soon to usually girls in high school like to cause problems for each other. Like dating the guy they like.
Things don't happen without a reason, and time is fleeting even though it's infinite, you exist in a finite point in it, and as far as I know, there are no guarantees in our existences beyond existence.
I know how you feel, it happened to me yesterday. I keep bouncing into this guy. He s been like in 3 parties I attended. I am usually pretty confident and approach people but he s too damn good looking and snobbish/poshy like that I didn t feel like taking the first step :p Look be sure first that you feel he likes you back, go out nore often with him and see how he reacts with you and all. If you feel there is smthng between you then open up about itm
