I honestly don't know what to do.

I apologize for the very long post. I slightly felt the need to vent.I gained an interest in a friend of mine who I met two semesters ago and for the past two weeks up to now, we've been talking and getting to know each other (talking as in normal conversing but I did flirt with him a bit). I asked if he was free during the weekend of next week and he told me he was going to Renn Fest and that I should come. It was only him and I at that point but then plans were moved to another day. I…See More

Read your recent post in Growing in Manliness, trying to reply...but keep losing my post (things are hectic at work).  I'll try to post soon, we're going through similiar things.  I wonder how much of your backstory leading to these issues is like my own. I'm posting here so you don't feel everyone is just ignoring your post.  

I think, I need to learn to trust again, and it sounds like you're struggling with the same thing.  Maybe we can help each other?  Send me a message once we're friends and we can talk.
