I know this is long, but I really need some advice... About 6 months ago (octoberish) I went on what I consider the best date of my life. I went out to dinner with a guy I've been aquainted with for about a year. I met him through his younger brother (who I had been on several dates with) and one of my coworkers. We sat in the resteraunt for three hours talking until we finally realized that the place was shutting down for the night (we were the last ones in there). I'm only 18 but I can honestly say that I've run pretty rampant through the dating world for a while and this guy is definitely an exception to everything I've seen so far. Knowing/observing him for a while I can tell that he's not preoccupied with getting laid, and he seems to have a good amount of respect for others and even more importantly, respect for himself. I was so comfortable with him and for once everything just seemed to really click and I felt like I might have found someone on my wavelength. I can be my totally weird, nerdy self and he laughs and comes back with something that I find even funnier. He's also completely on target with where I picture my S.O. to be in life (graduated from a good college, has a steady job/career that he loves). I thought his age/position in life being so different than mine might have some sort of effect on things but that never really seemed to bother either of us (I joked with him about it a few times to try and test his view on it). After that date, we continued to see each other at group events (trivia nights, etc.) and we talked on the phone pretty often but there were never any plans made for another individual date. The only logical reason I could come up with to explain us never going anywhere was that I was about to move (in about 3 months, january) 4 hours from home to go to college. After racking my brain and going a little nuts about it, I decided it was probably best to just leave it alone and go on with my plans of moving to VSU. I figured that if anything was meant to happen, it eventually would come back into play, but that I shouldn't worry about it now. A week ago our mutual friend and I were talking and I found out that he got a promotion and was moving to a town about an hour away from VSU. I called him later that night to congratulate him and we wound up setting right back into the groove of easy, enjoyable conversation that we had before. I talked to him three times this week and we even had plans to see a movie (with some of our other friends) last saturday (again, a group thing). Things came up and I couldn't make the movie. He hasn't called me since. Here is where I need some help: I don't know why or how but this guy really did a number on me, obviously. I've always been the kind of girl that could get another guy in a heartbeat and if it didn't work out with one it was no biggy because another would come along soon enough, but this one is different. The signs to me are unclear and i'm getting nowhere just trying to figure it out. I need to know what to do now. You really only get one shot at telling someone you have feelings for them. And my thoughts are if you come off too strong you'll sound creepy, if you say it at an awkward moment or the wrong time or the wrong way, that's it... you're done, you've ruined you're only oppertunity. Should I try to talk to him about this? Or should I forget about it again and wait for him to bring it up?
