why is it hard for me to talk to guys? I will admit I am usually shy when I am around people I don’t know. But it doesn’t take me long to open up when a conversation gets going and it’s of something of interest. I’m very outgoing when around girls and guys but once I see a guy I think is cute I clam up. I really lose my cool and don’t know how to function, I’m sure I make it obvious as hell too!

there is this guy I’m interested in and it’s really funny because he literally just started coming back to mind recently. I havent seen him in a really long time actually. I’ve never even spoken to the guy.

He was actually in one of my classes and I recognized him. I heard about and seen him around town and on social media but never really spoke to him or anything.

When I found out he was in my class I freaked out and didn’t know what to do.

He sat across from me in class so I was always trying to remain calm but a sis was screaming inside. One particular day we got out of class early as soon as we finished our assigment. It was a group assignment I was mid way through mine and I saw he was finished and I was trying to find an excuse to bump into him to actually speak to him.

He just kept standing at the door of the classroom as if he was waiting and so I started packing my book bag and looked up and he was still standing there so I was trying to move quickly to get to him. As soon as I had everything all packed and ready to go I look up and he’s walking away 😩

It was the only opportunity I had to run into him and talk to him and I blew it

I see him all the time on twitter and think about following him but I don’t know if it’s weird to do that cause we don’t really know each other?

I just wanna get to know the guy 

why cant I be bold

There’s nothing wrong with you- it’s who you are! That being said, there are windows of opportunity... like if he is wearing something new, perhaps compliment him on that... or better, think of a good question to ask him about the class... maybe some eye contact would help? (I know that can be a tough one)...

Good luck and keep us posted!

Totally, fully relate to the clamming up part. And losing your cool. I overanalyze the smallest interactions with the people I crush on. I shall start understanding this as normal and part of life. It may help to try to see the person as a normal person / just another human being? Be nice to the person because he/she is human too? Good luck!
