So I've been friends with this guy for a while and got the hint that he liked me from the start..he texted me a lot, called me occasionally etc and I guess we went on a few 'dates' (though not sure what counts as a date these days?!) but then I thought he'd lost interest coz I was so so shy around him. He's probably actually the complete opposite of me- confident, popular, outgoing etc so what he sees in me I have no idea. But yesterday I went to see him coz he was asking me to come down for the night and visit him....I didn't really think anything of it since I figured we were just friends. Nothing happened while I was there but afterwards he came out with all this stuff...like how he'd wanted to hold my hand when we were walking by the river and how he thought I deserved to be loved and cared for properly.. I didn't know what to say really(it was just over msn)...just when people get too close I have a tendancy to push them away.. fear of being rejected for who I am guess. And I just can't shake this insecurity...like he'll find me boring if he gets to know me better. I want to be comfortable around him, and sometimes it is..like we can sit around and chat quite happily but then other times I'm so shy and quiet around him and it just feels like we have nothing we can talk about. And then he says I should talk more which probably has the reverse effect making me more self consious so actually I talk less :/ Argh! I'm just useless with this stuff and I'm scared that if I keep pushing people away I'll end up forever alone but I just can't help it. Anyone ever feel liek this/overcome it? Is it easier to date a shy guy?
