Dear 4-ch. I'm a 17 (almost 18) year old girl. I've been in love with a dear friend of mine for months (around 8) and while I feel like he's been dropping hints, nothing has happened, for he's seeing someone already. Partially, despite the few successes when it comes to online dating, I feel totally silly for liking someone so much who's geeky face I've only seen pictures of, and only heard his voice on the phone. (But, hey, to that key his girlfriend is online too.) Alas, nothing has stopped my heart from loving this person and man... unrequited love really REALLY hurts.
First off, what did he say about it all?
Also, you're almost 18 living in New York- there is no reason why you should be focused on just one dude.
Yes, yes love is grand but you're so young! I know it's hard to be a hikkikomori and try and have relationships. You just have to be willing to risk rejection, which sounds like your main problem (putting off a confession for 8 months? yikes!)
Yeah. I know I shouldn't be so focused on someone... but I really haven't been able to get over him before. ^^; And, I should've mention it before, but that was the fourth time or so I actually admitted I loved him. Just the first time I wasn't all "uwaaa blushblush" about it.
