This girl and I met through a mutual hobby 2.5 years ago. She went out on a date with a friend of mine and it was tragic, (I know because she told me). She's really shy and I'm fairly open. We talked for a while and I just kept getting the cold shoulder when I spilled feelings. Not exactly a no, just more of a anxiety issue. Fast forward a year. We talk far more frequently and she's putting forth an effort (as am I) to be good to one another. She admitted that she was distant to protect herself. We've been on a date recently, it went well! We communicate a lot. And I finally got up the nerve to send an email (so her mid thought responses wouldn't change my thoughts) basically telling her how I feel and for her to digest it in her own time. HELP! Ask anything you need I'll do my best to answer!
