Sindy's Blog - August 21, 2007

August 21, 2007

I did it. I finally told Finn that I like him. And it did not go exactly as I'd hoped. After putting it off all summer, I had imagined it was going to be this amazing moment. Instead, as I said the words, "Finn, I really like you. I think we should go out sometime," a giant wave crashed into me and I ate a mouthful of sand.

Yeah, I thought it would be romantic or something to tell him while we were surfing. I totally didn't think about the potential hazards of that situation. So it was a little humiliating to say the least. By the time I managed to get my head above water again, my hair was a complete disaster and I was seriously choking on sea water.

After I dragged my butt onto dry land and got control of my breathing, Finn told me he's glad I took a chance and told him how I feel. Turns out he's been crushing on me all summer long as well, but just didn't know if I would be interested. How crazy is that?! Me? Not interested? Goes to show you that my flirting skills are not exactly what I thought they were.

Finn doesn't go to the same school as me, but he does live really close by. So we've decided to take things slow, see if we can make something of this. We're going to try to get out surfing together at least a couple times a week. School's bound to be hectic this year, but I think I owe it to my self to keep up my mad surfing skills. Not to brag or anything but I've gotten really good this summer!

Better jet - Finn and I are going to catch a movie tonight. I'm pretty nervous. It's going to be weird going as "not friends". I would love to go see The Nanny Diaries but I don't think Finn will be into that. Maybe we can check out Stardust. I still haven't seen it, but I heard it was really good - and not too girly!

Peace Out,
Sindy

    Dear Dish-It In The Forums

    I can relate very much.  :e  It happens a lot. But here's one thing, try not to date. At my middle school, everyone literally dates everybody and relationships never last. Part of the reason is that most of us aren't in that mature phase yet (mostly boys). As the days go by, we're growing. But, it's completely normal to have a crush on a boy. :) :thumbsup

    Sorry for the late reply, but I'd love to help. If they don't want to talk to you, or don't like your jokes, don't talk to them. They probably don't like you, so you shouldn't try to make it better. You should hang out with your other friends. They'll make you feel better about yourself. If you don't have any friends in your class...that's the problem.  That's exactly what happened to me last year. But I started hanging out with the guys more, and they were really nice and had a lot in common with me. Maybe the guys will be nice to you and accept you. I hope I helped you. :)

    Aw, that's sad. I know this is a late review, but I would love to help you make new friends. There are kids that do nasty things at every single school, trust me, you'll never find a perfect school, and if people are reporting this form of bullying, teachers are probably supervising children more, so don't worry about that. :) Now making new friends, ahh, that's very difficult. I can be shy myself, but it honestly depends. What I usually do is observe different groups of people, and see how they interact with each other. If the person seems nice, wait until the time is appropriate and greet them. A friendly "Hi, I'm new, could you maybe show me around, or help me with this, or tell me about this school?" That will start off a conversation. :)  As well, I tend to make jokes, or go to my funny side. I usually make way more friends that way. You could try to make slight jokes, and gradually make them less implied and more clear as you joke around.  If there are any other new kids, or shy kids, definitely talk to them. If there are any kids that look lonely, or sad, maybe take some time to approach them. If they look like the want to be left alone, leave them alone. If you're not sure, it's best if you see someone else interact with them first.  If you're bisexual, that doesn't really matter, and don't bring that fact up in a conversation. That's kind of personal, and when you get a little closer, you can say that. It's not really important, and necessary for people to know that. And it's personal too. So don't bring that up unless you really want to.  I hope i helped you! Sorry for the late advice. >_<

    Several people are having the same problem as you. Whether they're the same gender or not, many people crush on some of their closest friends. So don't feel alone, remember that. I know this is some late advice, but I hope so far things are going good. Many people are feeling the urge of confessing like you. Yes, I think you should confess to her clearly, but when the time is right. She may not like you, but if you really really like her, you should absolutely confess to her. But be aware that confessing to one of your friends can ruin your friendship. You have to be cautious, confess when the time is right. 5 months may be long for you, but honestly, that's a short-term crush. Don't rush your confession, and don't give up unless you think you should. Getting over someone can be incredibly hard too, but you're either going to get over her, or confess to her. When the time is right, confess. When the time never seems to come, I'm sorry, but unfortunately, I think it's best if you get over her, because you have to be 100% sure before you confess to someone. You're risking your friendship to, so think if it's really worth it.  I hope I helped you. :)
