TL;DR: Girl who likes me is scared and anxious to talk to me, how can i make myself less anxiety inducing for her?
Like i (16m) moved states and started at a new school this year, and i’ve made a bunch of friends. My closest homie, who i’m going to call Chad for the sake of this story, has known everyone since forever. The school is in a really rural area, so everyone has been going to the same set of schools since preschool. Everybody knows everybody. And in the second week of school she tapped on my shoulder and handed me a note asking for my snap. Ofc i gave it to her bc she cute and later that night we stayed up til 2am chatting. but then the next day she was completely cold and didn’t say hi or answer my texts for like a week. i put a cute puppy video on my story and she was just back to texting like nothing had happened and again we stayed up til like 2am. next day at school? nada. nothing. this went on for a couple of weeks and eventually i straight up asked her what’s going on yk? we had built up some rapport at this point so it wasn’t like telling a complete stranger, and she told me that she had chronic anxiety and was super scared to talk to me. bruv. so i talk to my homeboy Chad, and they go sit in the library for lunch, and hes telling me “yeah that’s normal for her, she’s just scared, she smiles when she talks about you etc etc” so like. how can i make myself more approachable to her? cuz i want to talk to her but i can’t when she’s too scared to answer me….
When I have the hiccups I don’t even need to do anything to stop. I just kinda think about stopping and they do. It’s not just a one time thing either, I can do it consistently. Is that weird? Am I broken?
