So there’s this guy I think I like. It’s more of an attraction than anything else. But it’s so strong that I have physical reactions when he’s around me. Like an increased heart rate, eyes going wide, breathing becoming shallow and just stuck to the ground I stand on. It sounds so dramatic and if it did not happen to me, I would have laughed at it as well. And, it isn’t once or twice that it has happened. Every time I see him, it’s the same. There is no decrease in intensity. If at all, the attraction is becoming stronger. I don’t think it’s the same from the other side. I am hesitant to approach him first because of some incidents in the past that have traumatized me. I’m unable to put him out of my mind nor am I able to speak to him. I don’t want to be in this zone. It’s confusing. I am unable to perform my daily chores. His face happens to pop up in my mind’s eye every 2 seconds. Also, he’s 4 years younger to me.
What should I do about this?
