Dear Miss Emily:

I like a guy and I think he likes me too.  Ever time I'm with him I have a great time. I want hin to know how I feel about him, but I'm really afraid to confess that I like him.  I really want him to know, but I'm afraid that if I wait too long I will lose him.  Help! please!
Gotta Get Him

-------------------------Miss Emily’s advice--------------------

Dear Gotta:

You’re half way there.  You hang out with him and you are having a great time. Believe me, the only thing to fear is fear itself!  What could possible happen if you were to tell him you like him?  Your head will fall off and roll down the street?  Kidding aside, there are times when we just have to bite the bullet and let others know how we really feel.  And if it doesn’t turn out the way we would have hoped, we move on to something else.  If he’s not interested in you in a romantic sense, and if he’s a decent person, he will be gently honest with you and life will go on as you know it.  But don’t consider it rejection if he’s only interested in friendship.  I once showed a male friend a picture of a famous model.  I asked, “Don’t you think she’s gorgeous?”  He said, “No.  And her neck’s too long.”  Now – go seize the moment!
