This could possibly be because of the fact that he just got out of a bad relationship about a month ago. If the feeling is mutual I'm pretty sure that he won't approach me about it because I know that he has lost a lot of confidence as a result of his recent break up.
I'm painfully aware of the fact that if I want anything to happen between us I'm the one that has to initiate it. I have absolutely no idea where to begin. We're both very introverted and quiet, which makes it slightly more difficult for things to get started. There is also a very strange relationship between the two of us. We rarely speak, which probably sounds ridiculous, but the little time we spend together consists of minimal conversation and a lot of pregnant silence. I get the vibe that he wants to say something, but he never does. At this point he probably thinks that I dislike him, which is probably a big reason why I haven't said anything. I'm worried he's going to be incredibly taken back and freaked out. One of my biggest flaws is that I'm embarrassingly bad at expressing my emotions and I also get really nervous when I'm around him. Despite this I've already decided that I want to tell him. I don't have a lot of time left because I'm leaving on a two month trip soon and will not have access to the Internet or phones.
Any advice or anecdotes will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
