    I read a letter on here that said there’s not that many guys writing much. That she wanted to know how guys feel too. So here’s how one guy feels:

    There’s so much i could say i guess I’ll start with a girl. I met her in high school. She was new to my town. Before i even talked to her i knew that i liked her. But it seemed our timing was always bad. When she was single i wasn’t, and when i was she wasn’t. So we stayed friends through school. After school was over we lost touch with eachother. Went through our share of loves and heart aches but none compared to the way she made me feel. Until our paths crossed again. We stated hanging out and got really close. And then one day she stopped talking to me. i felt lost, confused. My world was upside down. About 2 months later i finally got the courage to confront her about it. I was tired of having so many “what ifs”. So i told her i really liked her and asked what happened? She said that we were moving too fast and that she wanted to slow things down but didn’t know how i would take it. I said “I like (love) you. I’ve liked you from your first day in school, and for that i don’t have any problem slowing down for YOU.” She said she felt the same way for me, but she kept telling herself it was too soon. And that was the end of it. It pains me that i can’t see her pretty smile, beautiful long dark hair, gorgeous green eyes, a personality that would easily light up the darkest room when she walked in. But i guess i can at-leased say i tried. “Right?”

    I’ve been trying to Move out of my parents house but there’s always something that comes up. recently my dad had an accident and can’t work. They were going to lose their house cause just off my mom’s income they couldn’t cover every thing. So once again i stayed. I’m now paying all the bills i can which leaves me with enough gas money to get to work and home. I feel stuck. But i CAN’T let them down. No matter what. College and everything else is on hold for now.

    A little something about guy’s “at least this one”.
    We feel like we have to be strong. We have to be-able to provide and support. If i don’t…if i don’t have a job…I fall. i get depressed, i’m not real confident and i get withdrawn. You could even say i get shy. That might just be me though. Please don’t think we don’t have the same emotions or feel the same way. We just have to be strong for you. YOUR ROCK. We also want to be accepted, comforted, held, and love as you do. I could go on but i’ll leave it at that.

    If anyone like this. i might post more.

      Thank god I am not the only one that feels like this, we often feel inadequate because the women in our lives often inspire us and see something special in us as well. And of course this pushes us hard to not disappoint them as well as ourselves.

      Its a recurring issue with most guys that in order to keep this person in our lives, we often get over analytic about our actions and become withdrawn due to that lack of self confidence that “I am good enough for her” – because in most respect we are. However we want to become even better which puts a strain in the relationships which can often lead to depression.

      To truly value yourself is the most important thing and no one should make you feel otherwise. If she is with you for however long you have been, then obviously you do matter to this person.

      Of course in my case I got rejected but you know thats a letter for another day lol.
