I’m in high school, and school just ended. There was this boy in one of my classes who I had always thought was cute. Unfortunately I don’t think very highly of myself (I’m not skinny or very pretty), and so I thought he would never like me. Then we had to do an activity where we write a letter asking for advice, then we had to switch with someone and respond to one another’s questions. He and I ended up switching journals, and when I read his, it was about me! It said that he liked me and wanted to take me on a date.
I didn’t want to overreact in case he didn’t really mean it, and I didn’t want to sound desperate, so I just gave him some basic advice back. Then a few days later, there was an origami heart on my desk in homeroom, with no note. I suspect it was from him, but he never mentioned it in class. Then in class, I was talking to another person and saying how someone called me but didn’t leave a message. Sort of under his breath he said “it was me asking you on that date,” and I was so caught off guard that I didn’t really say anything.
After that, he hadn’t tried to contact me outside of school, and I was afraid he thought I wasn’t interested. But I am! So I got his Snapchat from a friend and added him. A few hours later, he Snapchated me saying “hey,” and we talked for a little bit. But then he stopped answering and didn’t open it until the next morning.
Since then we haven’t Snapchated at all, and I’ve been waiting for a snap! I don’t know what to do, because now I really like him and want to talk to him. I figure now that he has my Snapchat, if he wants to talk to me he will, but I’m afraid he thinks I’m not interested. I don’t want to come off as desperate, but I want to get to know him more! Should I Snapchat him, or is that too desperate? What should I do? Do you think he still likes me?
