A little piece of advice : practice talking to people that you don't see often with this in mind "The worst thing that can happens is that she rejects me". Don't think it'll be the end of the world. You'll just have to try someone else.
What intimidates me is the possible reaction. Maybe I said something wrong and that's why they haven't replied in an hour. Or maybe that blog they wrote is about me because I messed up and accidentally offended them. And of course, these ideas are way far-fetched, but at the moment when I just introduce myself, the seem so likely.
Well I know that much. The whole act of actually going up to someone and talking to them is a different game though. Too shy and stuff... And yes, self-esteem is part of the issue. Because I used to be fat and that left me traumatized. XD But that's not an excuse anymore, but still.
Possibly. I'm not sure, but I'm glad I have some. I have a few girl friends at school (one of them has an obvious crush at me, even though I already told her I don't like her). Mostly from elementary school (my first friend was a girl. We bonded with our love of sharks). But if I may ask, what's the reason for the question?
