@fradddd: Now that you've dipped your toe into the waters of asking a girl out. Take all that emotion that you have built up from being 'rejected' or not having a clear cut answer and use it to make sure it doesn't happen again. You've asked, she said 'no' you felt like crap and sad. The worse part is over, all a female can ever do is say no. It's your job to make her say Yes. Show that confidence, show her why she deserves to be with you.
Ziggy is right, maybe I forgot what it's like to be a noob but practice. It took you 2 years for the first time. This time, it's going to take you a few days. Keep it up. If this does not work out, next girl you like, keep the wave in motion and ask another girl out. Build that confidence.
wow I was on vacation for a few days and I come back to this and it feels like the end of an era where we kept telling you to just tell her how you feel. kind of bummed it ended but I'm happy for you that you managed to do it.
@bleute I know you guys are just speaking from your experiences a lot of the time, but mine are different. I become pretty attached to everyone I like/love, including my friends. I just like the act of liking them I guess. I like being loyal and caring about them.
I don't just get infatuated with someone, which is almost guaranteed to be the reason some couples only stay together for a few months or less sometimes. Lots of high schoolers probably never realize there is more than infatuation, but I did and still do. I don't have those "just a few weeks/months" barely-relationships that everyone says they had in middle or high school.
