You've got to just come out and say it.
Have you been crushing on someone for the longest time but don't think you have the guts to tell them? Better yet, have you ever been so in love with someone that you just can’t find the courage to open your heart without feeling nauseous? Well, you're in luck because we're here to tell you why you need to shake off those nerves.
When life coach Dr. Lisa Kaplin explains how you can tell that special someone exactly how you feel, we couldn't agree more. We understand that you might be afraid of rejection; this reaction is totally normal and rational. After all, we think there's a part of everyone that is afraid of being rejected or shunned. But if you never tell him that you're interested, he'll never know how you feel. For all you know, the two of you have the potential to be the perfect couple. The only way to find out is to ask him! And by asking, we don't mean just saying that you want to "hang out". You've got to really commit to the idea that you want to go on a real date — Not just sitting on a coach watching some movie on Netflix and eating snacks. Actually taking the time to get dressed and go out to eat at a nice restaurant could make all of the difference in your potential love story. Even if he ends up turning down the chance to get to know you on a romantic level, the most important part is that you were able to throw caution to the wind and put yourself out there. That alone is worth celebrating!
