Hello, my darlings. So I need some crush advice.
First, I’ll give y’all a bit of backstory. Last year was the first time I’d ever been to Bible camp, and I had a phenomenal time. Unlike the other girls in my youth group, however, I stayed far away from crushes and camp romance, because I know it’s just stupid. But the thing is, I met this guy.
I don’t believe in love at first sight, but this was love at first night (and not in an inappropriate way). I met him while we were standing in line after service in the snack shack, because I was messing around with my sonic screwdriver and he knew what it was.
So I don’t know if it’s love, but it was fast. We hung out a lot the next day, and by that night, I had (while making a conscious effort not to turn it into a camp romance) completely fallen for him. I mean, he was cute and smart and nice and a Whovian and he actually chose to spend time with me…what’s not to love?
For the rest of the week, we spent quite a bit of time together. And at the end, with my being phoneless and all, we exchanged emails.
We live in different states (they’re right next to each other, though), but since camp last year, we have continued a correspondence that has got to be hundreds of emails at this point, and I’ve only succeeded to like him more and more.
But there’s always got to be complications, doesn’t there? The thing is, he has a girl that he’s liked for years and years (who shows no interest in him and discourages him pretty frequently), and he has no idea of my feelings for him.
But, after a year of casually loving him from a distance, I kind of want to tell him. We’re setting up Skype, so we should be able to talk face-to-face for the first time in a year, and I’m thinking soon might be my chance.
I need your guys’ advice, though? To tell or not to tell? And what to say? I’m very nervous about all this.

Aww! This is such a cute story! I think it’s great that you guys are setting up Skype so that you can talk and get to know each other more. That’s a great first step! It shows that he’s interested. In terms of sharing your feelings with him, I would hold off until you’ve had a chance to get to know him better and you know the full extent of what’s going on with his current relationship. In the meantime, just have fun! Get to know him and in time, you’ll feel more comfortable with expressing yourself to him. Hope this helps! All the best to you two :).
