I've been a pretty shy dude for most of my life, yeah? Most of my relationship experience has been crushes on girls I hang out with. I've never actually acted on it before, though. The last girl I thought I was in love with, we hung out all the time and always had fun but I never did anything about it because of my abnormal paranoia of not being liked. Well I feel like that's happening again, but I don't want to go my entire life being too afraid to ask a woman out. This time though, I am pretty certain she doesn't feel the same way, and I know and accept that. I just think Im not going to be able to move on unless I say something, you know? So I have decided next time we're alone together, no matter whether it feels right or not to say, I'm just going to tell her that I really like her, even though I know she doesn't like me back and it's been eating away at me since orientation really (when I first met her) and I'm not going to be able to move on until I hear from her in person that she doesn't like me back. Sorry about the venting. Do you guys think its the right thing to do? Or should I just shut the fuck up and forget about it?
