gonna keep this short as possible
I've developed body dismorphic disorder, and because of this I haven't been with a girl in years and I'm very private about it.
i have a lot of physical things that I keep being told aren't noticeable or a problem, but to me they make me very self aware.
and because of this I have a lot of rituals I have to do in the morning to make myself feel good enough to leave the house.
I have never had a problem meeting girls and I usually pull one at the weekend when I go out, but I never take it any further than the club, because I wouldn't want them to see my flaws and what I'm like in the morning with my ocd/bdd.
the problem I have is a girl I've been friends with for years that I know likes me and she wants me to ask her out and I really like her, but I can't make myself do it while I'm like this, I can't allow her to me like this. when I'm out and about I seem normal and look fine dressed up, but when I'm at home I'm a wreck.
what can I do, if I don't do something she will move on.

I suggest going out with her. she likes you and might move on and I know you are going through this but just think: she likes you because she accepts you for who you are. firstly try telling her this and see how she reacts. she is ur FRIEND so she won't judge you but THAT will make her decide if she wants to be with you as more than friends. if she still does, then tell yourself "this girl likes me for who I'am". trust me, if a girl likes you she will like you no matter what. for example, my ex boyfriend had a drug addiction and I KNEW that and I still managed to like him no matter what because I had fallen in love with his personality...it was hard but true.
