Sindy blogs about finally asking out her summer crush.

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

    I think you can not be sure he likes you. take me as an example theres this girl in my class who i talk to everyday. Now i see her as a sister and i have and will go to lengths just to make sure shes okay and her boyfriend doesnt hurt her. This might be what is happening in your situation so i advice that you wait a bit longer because him loooking at you may mean that he likes you and is waiting for the right time to tell you. Meanwhile you can get closer to him and flirt once in a while to asure that him you also like him (that is if he isnt sure). And dont worry if he doesnt like you back its better to have a friend who cares about you than a boyfriend who doesnt like you that much and is dreaming about someone else.

    What part of it are you scared of? Is it eating in public and around other people, or just eating in general?  What it might be, if it's eating in public you don't like, is social anxiety, or social phobia. You should ask your doctor to check, because if it is, they can offer you ways to help. For instance, they might recommend therapists or group sessions to help ease your fear.  Even if it's just a phobia or, in unlikelier circumstances, an eating disorder, you should still go to your doctor or a therapist so you can try to overcome it. Try doing things that calm you down before these situations as well, like exercise, reading or listening to music (I'm not sure what relaxes you but sometimes these help). Also, you should try to slowly get used to the situations. So don't force yourself to eat straight away when you're out, but slowly start doing so whenever your comfortable with doing so. Unlike your mum wants, you can't just "stop" being scared because that's not how it works.  But right now, please don't force yourself into any of these situations. It's not good for your mental health to be forced to face a phobia of yours often.

    Dear Dish-It, Within the last few years I have felt a bit sick and shaky when we go out to eat. It's not so bad when it's a carvery lunch or something at a pub, but settling down for a chocolate brownie and a milkshake shakes me up. Don't get me wrong, I love going out with Mum, but it's just sitting down and taking a bite. I want to chuck it in the bin. I love eating brownies and stuff at home and I'm pretty healthy. But I refuse to go to the town before lunch in fear. Mum told me I got to stop this or I'm going to develop a terrible phobia.  Please help! ElfyKathy, worried
