I wanted to ask my girl, Janice*, if she wanted to be my girlfriend on Valentine’s Day. We both ended up working that night and although we were alone for a little bit when she drove me home afterwards, I didn’t want to ask her in her car. But lately I’ve been thinking if I want to ask her to be my girlfriend at all.
I haven’t been hesitant to ask her to be my girlfriend because I don’t like her as much as I thought I would; I actually like her even more everyday.
I’m hesitant to ask her if she wants to be my girlfriend because of all the complications that it would entail, because I’m not sure if I rely on her for happiness or not, and because being in a relationship terrifies me.
