Can't stop thinking about a girl
Posted on: 09/13/2006
There is this girl I am crazy about. She found out that I liked her last year, but I was/am still afraid to talk to her for some reason. I can't stop thinking about her. Everytime I try to go talk to her I start worrying about things like what do I say or just being embarressed. Would it be too late for anything also since it has been about year and how do I overcome my "problem"?
It is never too late, and learning to talk to people you are attracted to is an important life lesson. All through your life you will run into this siuation and now is a good time to start practicing. It is not easy, but try saying hello, or asking how she is, what she did this summer, or ask about an interest she seems to have. Start small and build - you will know if she is interested in talking with you by how she responds.
Be brave - trying is the only way to know how she feels.
