Dear Bitter Single Guy: So I’ve known this guy since I was 13 and a half. I am now 17 and a half. They say that love at first sight doesn’t exist and that you don’t know what love is until you’re an adult. He’s been through several girlfriends. And recently this girl Kasey was with him and he almost married her except he recently found out she cheated on him 3 times. His name is Robbie. I didn’t know before but I know now for a fact since I’ve now been through the relationship loop a few times that he does in fact hold an interest for me and he has for a very long time. It feels as if it’s finally my chance to be with him and I have no idea what to do. There’s so much more about the time I’ve known him I probably should say but I really don’t know how I should approach this situation. This is different than any other romantic situation I’ve ever been in because I love him. I always have and always will. ~Feel Like a Coward~
Dear FLC: The Bitter Single Guy finds himself wondering at what age we stop using halves in our ages. The BSG himself prefers measuring his age in fractions of centuries, which makes him feel really young.
FLC, you know what advice the BSG is going to give you here, don’t you? You’ve been in love with this Romeo for 4 years, you’ve had relationships, he’s had relationships, you feel a connection that you’re pretty sure he feels as well. Seriously Girlfriend, there’s nothing to do but take the plunge. Ask him out. Do it. Invite him to a movie, to have coffee, to do something appropriate in public. Yes, it will hurt if he declines, but doesn’t it hurt a little now?
Do it, FLC. Don’t reach the ripe old age of 20 ½ without ever knowing if he was The One.
