Take it off your chest...

I really want to talk to this guy I went to high school with. It's been 5 years since I've seen him and we weren't really friends back then. He tried flirting with me but I didn't think he was serious. He was way out of my league. I thought he was joking. I thought it might've been a mean prank. Like someone dares him to do it. I've only just realized that he might've been serious. I found his twitter and he's still as nice as he was back then. I think I've learned more about him through his tweets than i did in our four years of school together. But the thing is, I can't get the guts to do anything about it. I can't get the guts to 'follow' him. And since I haven't seen him in person since 2010, social media is the only way I'd be able to talk to him. Even if he wouldn't want a romantic relationship, I still want to be friends with him. I think we would get along really well. He was always nice to me in school, i just let my insecurity about myself and fear of being rejected or embarrassed get in the way. He's leaving for Basic Training in two months. Who knows when or if I'll ever see him again if I don't see him before then? If he never comes home, it would tear me apart. It would tear me apart regardless of if I see him in the next two months or not. But if I don't, there would be regret and wondering what if on top of the grief. I'm more confident and comfortable in myself since high school but not so confident I can make a move.

  • Talk. To. Him. You need to, it will make you feel so much better and something can actually come out of it

  • Do it. Please just do it. Contact him, talk to him. Ask if he wants to meet up with you. Just have the courage. I know it's hard (I have social anxiety, so I know how awful it feels to approach people) but if you don't do it now, you'll regret it forever, and regret is one of the worst feelings ever, because it will haunt you untill you're old. So pull yourself together, take a few deep breaths, follow him on twitter and then contact him. Please. For me. Pretty, pretty please.
