I've known the guy I like for almost a year now. For the last couple months he's claimed to like me back too. (For personal situations, we can't be together but that's another story.) Everytime I'm around him I'm an absolute nervous wreck, when in reality he's one of the closest people to me. I have a very hard time maintaining eye contact with him for over 2 seconds and I can't even stand in front of him without being completely nervous. So my question is, does anyone think they have an idea as to why? Or have any suggestions on overcoming it? Thanks.
I can't think of what "personal situations" there could be, but if it's 'cause you're both involved already, this sounds like something you might want to avoid, rather than trying to overcome your nervousness around each other. Obviously the nervousness is because you have the hots for him. Try talking about it with each other, honestly and openly. He's not your cousin or something is he????? LOL.
