Hi I'm 17 years old. I met a girl in my freshman year in high school. We are now really good friends. Best friends. The first time I saw her, I had a crush on her. Now, I'm a junior in high school. We see each other a little more often now. This year, I have had feelings for her more than just a crush. I have never had these feelings before. I have had several crushes on girls but they don't last this long and I never feel this way about them. My stomach feels like I have butterflies in it all the time. I always think about her. I miss her so much when I'm not with her. I could even cry, sometimes I do. I've never been "hot" with the ladies. I've had maybe a few girlfriends but I've never felt like this before, not even close. I just want to hug her and hold her all the time, just to be with her. I am so afraid to tell her how I feel. I would just die if she didn't feel the same way. Then it would be awkward to talk to her after that. What should I do? Is there a poem here that would explain exactly how I feel? I was thinking of getting a new email address and send her love poems but not telling her who they are from. And then eventually I'll tell her myself(if she doesn't guess first) that it was me all along. I just don't know what to do. I've never felt this way before.
