'I don't know how to tell her I love her...'
I’m 27 and single. I met this girl at a friend’s engagement ceremony recently. As the celebrations were in Goa, I got a chance to spend a lot of time with her and got to know her well. She is also single. I was extremely comfortable with her. I think I have fallen in love with her. We have now gone our ways, but I do not know how to call her. We did exchange numbers, but it is over a week and she has not called me. I feel lonely and keep thinking about her. I do have a friend whom she also knows, should I confide in him? I feel I am socially awkward, but with her it was different. It was love at first sight. How do I tell her I love her? I am apprehensive about her reaction?
You are 27 and not 17. If you love her tell her. You know for sure that she is single, so what are you waiting for? You should have dropped hints when you were in Goa. The fact that she spent time with you is a clear indication that she is interested in you. She may be waiting for you to make the first move. Or perhaps she is thinking on the same lines as you and afraid to make the first move. I am sure you must have clicked pictures at the engagement ceremony. You can just WhatsApp two to three pictures and tell her you are remembering the good time had in Goa. I am sure she will respond. If she is keen on you she will not refuse to meet you. Then take it forward from there. But at the same time, do not behave like a desperate guy. Take things slowly and don’t rush into the relationship. May be she needs time to think and reflect, so give her the space. You have made up your mind, but let her decide in due course.
