Should I stay where I’m at, or do something about it?
I met this guy online a few months ago and we became really close. We talk everyday and we admitted to each other that we had feelings for one another. Unfortunately we are still unable to meet face to face cause we live on opposite ends of the country. My feelings for him have not gone away, but I’m not sure about his. I want to ask him, but I’m afraid that if I do it might chase him away. But at the same time it is hard to stay where I’m at because it hurts not knowing and it hurts to not be able to do anything about these feelings. I would greatly appreciate some advice
I think that you should do something about it. It's obviously eating at your brain and that's because it matters. It could turn into something really great and I have tons of adorable Long Distance Relationship tips and ideas it could be something that fills you with joy and perhaps he wants to wait and at worst he chooses to say no but i guess the good thing about not being near one another would be that you can easily shut out the bad that could come along so in the end there will be no severe permanent negativity but there is potential for immense permanent positivity so it could only help, right? Go for it.
If he's really important you you, then honesty is the way to go. I know it might be hard, but telling him your true feelings will do a lot for moving your relationship forward. But it's also important to understand that there are probably a lot of other wonderful people out there for you to be with. Love can oftentimes blind us to that. I think that only you can decide whether he is worth it, but I would suggest that you give it a little time first and let your feelings settle before you make a choice.
