Curiouser & Curiouser

I have this friend who is trying to decide if she should continue pursuing this guy or not. They've known each other for about 3 or 4 months now and they've been on about 5 or 6 dates. She is totally into him but he acts very distant sometimes. I have no advice for her because I know that in her heart she loves him...even if she is not yet ready to admit it to herself and definitely not to him. She thinks if she lets him see too much too soon he'll dump her before they ever have a chance. She wants him to know how amazing she is but her tongue gets tied whenever he is around. It's actually pretty funny to see. She's funny and smart and beautiful, and I've never seen her like this before. I wonder if she is seeking some sort of validation from him or something because I can see no other reason for her to become a shy little girl around him. Hopefully she'll pull her head and let him see who she really is...otherwise I do fear that she'll lose him forever...and that would break her heart.

well I think that she's afraid that if she tells him he won't feel the same way. but his feelings will be the same even if she doesn's say something. if she truly loves him she should let him know because if he feels the same then it could become a really special thing. that's my opinion.

That's a really good way of thinking about it. But I think one of her concerns is that if she tells him it might scare him away and she would rather be with him without him loving her than lose him because she feels stronger than he does. I feel for her.
