How do you do it? I seriously think I'm one of the quietest, most unassertive persons out there. It's not that I'm unfriendly, I just really don't have much to say, or can't make my mouth say it.

And now I have a really, really big crush on a guy..."M". I'm friends with him - at least, I consider him a friend. I hope he thinks of me that way - and I honestly have no clue how I'd go about telling him that I have a crush on him.

I'm always so scared of embarrassment in everything I do, social-wise. I know though, even having miniscule experience in the romantic department (a guy liked me once...but I'd prefer not to go into it), embarrassment is something I need to get over.

Does anyone have any advice for me?

I've found the best way is to flat out tell your feelings.

Of course, this is AFTER you dance around the subject for, oh, half an hour or so, and attempt to read to signs to see if the romantic feelings are mutual or not ^_^

(my personal take on it)

It's hard, it's nerve-wracking, there's not much that's scarier (in my opinion) because you're putting yourself out there, and taking a risk.

Best of luck!
