How To Open Up Without Revealing Too Much Too Soon?

Published on April 6, 2010 by beautiful_diva

I've known this guy for 6 years and I've had a crush on him since day one. He's recently come back into my life and I like him a lot, but when I'm around him or talk to him it's somewhat hard for me to open up because I'm scared that if I do open up I'll reveal too much of how I feel about him and I don't want to say too much too soon. He wants me to be straightforward & I am sometimes, but I don't want to be too straightforward unless I know he's going to do the same and truly express how he feels or whatnot.


It's dangerous to get into a game of emotional chicken--see who reveals their emotions first. Although, you are right not to give too much of yourself away without that emotional commitment from him.

Is he opening up to you? Or is he just asking you to open up? Also, what is he asking you to open up about? If you've been friends for a while, what is it that he doesn't know about you?

When he pries and you feel uncomfortable, why not try saying in a flirty manner "those are things only people who date me get to know." And leave it at that.
