showing true affection
ive known this guy for a while and we talk at times, we dont hang out much but share a lot of ideas and interests.
essentially i dont know how to progress or maintain our relationship.
i dont think he realizes how isolated i am and the great amount of difficulty i have maintaining any relationships.
i am slowly starting to reciprocate the affection he shows me but don't know how to not be anxious around him.
i can only be really comfortable around people that i have no interest in, that im not afraid of saying the wrong thing around.
how can i tell him i value his affection?
