Yet to Feel.

I've never liked someone enough to tell them I liked them.

I've never opened up to someone who I thought I could be close to.

I think it's because I'm scared that people won't understand, but I have to say, its weird.

I have no problem talking to strangers, or teaching / informing peers of things,

I guess what I'm trying to say is that I can talk to anyone about anything EXCEPT myself.

I just don't know how to get close to someone, because I don't know how to talk to them when they ask about me or try to get to know me.  Sometimes I don't know what to do.

PUBLIC SPEAKING suxs. Go to a class and learn how to do it. Its the next step in getting over this fear. You only have to worry about the people in class who ARE going through the same thing. It helped me out..

Maybe you don't know who you are? Or, you aren't used to people thinking about you? I'm a lot like you also. I haven't opened up to many, and I don't think just 1 person out there knows all of me. I know I'm scared that if they did they wouldn't like me, or understand me. But, I've found that those people we connect with are usually something we think we're missing in ourselves or are a lot like us.<br />
In either case They will probably except you for being you, because they may be missing something they see in you or they are just like you.<br />
Give somebody a chance to know you. You might find they like you.
