It's pointless. Not impossible, maybe, but certainly nothing will come of it.


That was in January. This is now. And this time, things are a little different.

I know this boy. I've talked to this boy. I see this boy at school every day. And... there's something about him that I can't describe. He's unlike anyone I've felt for before. I know I should say something. I know I should tell him. But I'm so afraid... because this time, it's different. This time, I feel like I might have a chance. This time, my hopes are far too high. And I'm afraid. So afraid.

Resiliant? And here all this time I thought it was just bullheadedness and unfailing conviction. ;) heh. Good job on speaking out SitL. Much better than I can say for myself.

I hope so.

They try.

Yep. We're good. It feels good.

well thats atleast better than always wondering....

You're fine, but no, huh?<br />
<br />
Well, at least you spoke up.

We're fine. It doesn't seem awkward. =]<br />
<br />
But no.

i hope it all goes well

Now you gotta let us know how everything turns out.

Good on ya!

Ha, I just admitted it.

aww, well now that does suck

What does age and distance got to do with anything? There's the internet, and at most there are phones.<br />
<br />
As long as it's within 5-10 years, what's the big deal?<br />

Don't pass up on what could be a great chance. Take it. There really isn't real risk involved since you already believe you'll be turned down. If you've got a good friendship, it shouldn't stay awkward for very long.

That is true. I guess one never knows. But that's not the only reason, no. Age, distance, and all that great stuff.

do you only feel its pointless cause he likes someone else. when i met my husband i was dating some other guy....never thought twice about even liking him, until he let it be known how he felt...then one thing led to another

Don't be. If you guys are friends, then you should be honest. Be honest with him, but remind him you don't want to make the friendship awkward if he doesn't feel the same. It may feel awkward for a day or two, but if it's a good friendship, and he's a good guy, it won't be that way for long.

Yeah..... I'm so afraid to, though.

It has been my expirience that the awkwardizations only last for a little bit. Good friendships are steadfast.

I hope so. And I really don't want to say anything; I don't want to risk awkwardizing a friendship.

You can't be. At least tell them. I dunno. I made a career of telling people I liked them and failing at it in some manner.

Heh, I am pretty damn sure.

Yeah, that does suck... But you must never, never doubt what nobody is sure of.

Ha, I know I wouldn't. He likes someone else.

You shouldn't really never know. Give it a shot and reveal your feelings. You could win!

You're too far in it now. You have to tell!


Haha. I'm too afraid.

Ha. You really want to know?

It... I don't know. I almost feel dumb for even thinking it. There are so many factors that would make it wholly unlikely.
