I Have Butterflies In My Stomach

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 112 People

    I can't remember the last time I felt this way!

    I have a crush.. We share many similar beliefs, right down to the existence of aliens , lol... I can't wait for my "first date" with him.. Maybe It's because I have been single for so long, but this is the first time I have had butterflies in my stomach over something nice.

    The Messiest Weekend Ever!

    This weekend was brilliant! I hung with a group of over 20 people and I only knew one of them and that was the best part. Being in the company of people that you don't know is the best thing because you have no preconceived ideas about them. I could just enjoy their stories and...

    Thinking about him sends a rush through me.

    We used to spend a lot of time together when we were younger, and I used to like him. A few days ago, he said that he used to like me too. It's funny - mutual attraction but a lack of courage to ever even broach the subject. Anyway, I'm going to treasure these emotions of mine

    It's a very weird sensation.

    I don't like it. I get that feeling from being anxious about a girl that I like or from feeling unwanted and alone. The latter is what I hate the most. It just makes the feeling unwanted visceral and hurtful. :(
