I am an involuntary celibate and have not had any kind of serious relationship, that I know of, for years now. Most recently, I began to think that I was becoming involved with a wonderful girl I know; now I am beginning to fear that either I was imagining things or that I turned her off somewhere along the way.
What exactly I would like from you all is some advice, both on how to detect when the desires of those around you do not parallel with your own and how to conduct yourself in light of such conflict.
While I also believe that a knack for reading and understanding hints is important, I feel that knowing how to shake hands with rejection and becoming acquainted with humility are far more important.
It is debatable whether or not this wonderful human being reciprocates any of my feelings; but I frankly am too exhausted to analyze the situation anymore. I simply want advice on coping with the (in my opinion) worst possible scenario. I want to enlighten my ego.View Thread
