    Well...the girl I have been...cant think of a word for this....in love with? thats too strong....well the girl ive really liked for a long time (you remember the post ages back about letting her get back with her boyfriend) is going to uni soon...and shes single..

    I know I shouldnt go out with her...for 1) I like this other girl aswell...but not as much as her
    2) shes just too old and too much for me...

    But....shes single...she really likes me...she calls me Sweet Heart all the time, and also Stud Muffin and how she likes me and such...but...should...I atleast tell her before she goes....I think she fancies me back...shes said I love you before, and written it in my yearbook...but that could simply be because shes very friendly to me....

    If any of my friends who visit this board see this...please dont say anything about it...I dont want to ruin my friendship with her before she leaves..

    What do you guys think i should do? I can hardly go without thinking about her to be honest....I...dunno...

    What do you have to lose by letting things be said? My advice is to go ahead and do it, why think back a few years from now wondering what would have happened...? :)

    Same thing happened to me a few years ago. I guy I really like was a few years older than me and we going to be finishing school and then going to university a long way away. But I really liked him. So I went for it.
    Well what can I say... I had the best 2 months or so with him before he left! And eventhough we broke up and I've got a great new boyfriend, we're still friends and catch up whenever one of us is in town.

    So I guess I'm saying - Go for it! If it doesn't work out and she does totaly sell you out (which won't happen because she sounds like a nice girl from what you've said) but if that does happen at least she'll be moving away so you won't have to chance that awkward running into on the street stage. And if it works out - then you'll be happy (like me) coz you'll know that you took a chance and it paid off!

    go for it, what's the worst that could happen? she says she just wants to be friends, or if she says she doesnt feel the same way about you then at least you know how she feels and you wont have to wonder about how she felt about you when she leaves

    carpe diem! im sure everything will work out great! :thumbup: :D

    i say go for it also... never live your life with "what if" hanging over your head... you'll never forgive yourself.

    that being said, don't be a dope about it either... if the signs are pointing to shutting up, then do that instead :D i'm telling you that one from experience also...

    one thing to consider is this: what if she reacts poorly (for some unknown reason) can you deal with the thought of not being friends with her anymore? i thought i could, until it happened, and then i realised that i couldn't. in some conviluted way i guess it was for the best since now i know and don't have to live with what if, but that whole unsure flirty stage was pretty nice to. but those were some very sad days for me when i realised i had lost one of my closest friends. (some would say she wasn't a very good friend if she couldn't deal with "the talk" but we've since gotten over it and remain closest of friends again.)

    consequently her inadequacy to handle the situation at the time & the time we spent apart served to strengthen our friendship in the end, since there really is no subject too taboo for us to speak about now :)

    Arty - There is more than one couple on this forum that are together because we took a leap of faith and said what was on our minds. One of those couples is even having a baby in 8 months. (congrats guys!) I say... go for it! The answer to your questions is always going to be no unless you ask. :thumbsup:

    Hey man; there is nothing more confusing or uncomfortable or scary or (seemingly) death defying then matters of the heart. Being uncertain or unclear may be our defense mechanism, so as to not get your heart broken. That is all well and good.

    Personally; I say pursue her with the same vigor and passion that you pursue your photography. Passion should never be denied. Passion is tough on the heart but good for the soul. If she turns you down then you can say "well at least I gave it my all, may be she is not the gal for me". "Now I know". Ten bucks says she is gonna say "ohh Arty; I have dreamed of this moment for months"

    All that being said... Do as you feel and never follow. Know that we are here for you. If the million emotions that are going thru your head keep you from posting that is ok. We will not be divorcing you anytime soon. Please, please know that we are all tight. Communication may be key. Venting and disgust with love and the world will be understood on this end!!!!!!!!!!!

    Arty: Life's too short to sit around wondering what the right course of action is, if you sit and think about it too much you'll bail out and (further down the track) wish you hadn't.

    So if i were you i'd get off my little 16y/o arse and give this girl something you really want her to remember you for! :D

    Run out, find her, tell her you lurve her and wanna please her......and pray you get the right response. :lol:


    Moral to the story is: you have to put in the leg work for love to find you and bind you to the person you want to love!

    Isn't that right PG/Malacite(sp), Hobbes/Alison?
