Your Facebook stalko-meter increases, you find any way possible to bring them up in conversation, you over analyse every word, every touch (which is probably more like an accidental graze) and convince yourself that they were definitely flirting with you (even though they probably weren't).
You tell yourself a million times that you'll get the courage to ask them out but deep down you know you never will and there goes another Dream Boy, wasted because you're too scared to put yourself out there.
This is also known as shouldda, wouldda, couldda syndrome.
Are you a scaredy cat like me when it comes to mega babes who you have a crush on? Do you gaze at them with puppy dog eyes and image all the super fun times you would have if you were together, but never act on it? Why are we so scared to ask people out? I know! It's that little thing called The Fear of Rejection. Nothing would hurt more. If only I could be as honest as Aaron Carter and sing with pride, "I've got a crush on you!" Minus the under cut.
