So, I've just started high school, and I've been meeting a lot of people. I've met a girl that I'm very interested in. Sure, the fact that I've only known her 2 months discounts my feelings, but I still feel like that in that short timeframe, she's one of the few people I've met who's seen the true me. I sit right next to her for 2 periods, 140 minutes a day. She's very funny and interesting. We have a lot in common. She's also gorgeous. I talk to her a lot, as well as text her throughout the weekend. We always exchange greetings on the pathways. If you've been following my other thread of this topic, I was working up confidence to ask her to homecoming. I asked her on her birthday, but she was already going with a group. I wasn't terribly crushed by it at all because I felt like I would've gotten a yes had I asked her earlier, but we've been sinking into an awkward rut where you want to say something to each other, but just can't. Your eyes will meet, but we both look away swiftly before escaping back into the shuffle of people. It makes me realise how much communication remains unspoken or unwritten. Homecoming was tonight, and I was just going to go by myself, but I missed the deadline to purchase ticket, and I feel that I would have been inconveniencing my family. I can't stand this awkward rut. She is the type to be very flirtatious, but even if her feelings reflect mine, the awkwardness is killing me, and I would be fine if our friendship didn't escalate. I have heard that she is the type that can make your life miserable. I can see that because she psychologically probably wants to prove to people how strong she is. She still will text me back, but as stated earlier, so much communication remains unspoken or unwritten. and I love to hear myself type.
