... but after reading a few topics here, I thought some of you might help me get things cleared. First, don't pay too much attention to English mistakes, as this is not my mother tongue. I'll do my best. I love someone. A girl. Although I'm not quite sure what's the exact feeling of love, I suppose it has something to do with what I feel. This is a very difficult and hurtful situation for me. First, I'm 19, and I've never had a girlfriend. Nor did I kiss anyone before. I'm a complete newbie to this situation, and I'm feeling greatly depressed every time I try to move on and think about a solution. I would like to do so many things just to earn a few more minutes with her, however, I don't know how to start. I've known her for a few years. We are good friends, I guess... That's surely what she thinks, as I haven't been able to utter a single word that would give her a hint about my feelings. I'm far too bad at that little game... Of course during that time she has had a boyfriend, but she has broken up more than a year ago. I can't help thinking I'm an idiot. There is a chance she might say "yes", and I sit here... These last weeks, things have worsened. When I meet her, I become as dull as a stone, and respond coldly and shortly to any question. This is not me, I'm usually much more cheerful. Why do I act like this on these occasions ? When I'm alone, I spend some long moments thinking about everything I could just tell her. But imagination is limited... I've been thinking about every possible scenario. One of them was about going to her appartement (I'm at university) and tell her the truth. What would I lose ? Useless street conversations ? A friendship that has become tasteless ? I've reached a point where I need other people's opinions. Mine is just useless. That's strange I have to write this on a physics forum. As a matter of fact, this is the only place I found where answers seemed to make sense.
