I know I haven't posted here in a while, I've been pretty busy. And I know a message board isn't the best place to look for advice, but hey, why not get some advice from people who may have gone through it already. So, there's this girl I like. I met her towards the beginning of the year, doing the school play. We became good friends. More recently, I started liking her. However, I don't know if she likes me or not. The thing is, if she doesn't, I'd rather just get over it and be friends. But that's not likely to happen. Things would be awkward and she would probably want to avoid seeing me as much as possible. I'm friends with her close friends too. She's gone this week and I can't stop thinking about her. I'm going crazy with just sending her text messages. I feel like a jerk because it was just her birthday and I didn't know what to get her, so I ended up getting her nothing. I did take her out to lunch though. So, any advice on what to do? Should I remain just friends with her or should I express my feelings towards her and see how she reacts to it? By the way, I'm 15, she's 17. I don't think it matters that much though.
