I’m guessing you’re young, so I’m going to start with something that’s very important for you to understand. You like the guy a lot. You don’t ‘love’ him. How do I know? Because you haven’t ever talked with him enough to know anything significant about him. And you don’t know if you’re actually suited for each other or not.
I suggest you stop getting so dramatic and saying you’d die for him. Really, you’re not Romeo and Juliet, and you’re not yet part of a romantic love story. Pretending you are is just setting yourself up for disappointment.
There are lots of ways people describe the way they feel about someone they like. Try saying something like:
- I really like him
- I think he’s really attractive
- I’ve got the hots for him
It is much healthier to put your feelings in perspective instead of jumping to the ‘love’ declaration. Save that for when you really know a guy, and you really do love someone.
For the time being, what I think you should do is just take the time to engage him in conversation and find out more about him. Sounds to me like he’s very young too. Don’t be in such a rush. The whole process will be much easier for both of you as you get older and more mature.
