I’m 16. I had a dream that he told me he loved me and I said it back, although stuttery, and it scares me. I can’t love him. As he tells everyone who asks, “we’re just friends” I imagine what it would be like if we were a couple. Just little things. Like being able to sit next to him and lean on his shoulder. Hugging him in not just a quick ‘goodbye’ way. Holding his hand. Kissing him on the cheek. It scares me how fast it is. We’ve been close friends for about ten weeks. I’ve never dated someone before. And I already think I love him. I want him to ask me to be his girlfriend. Please help me.
