You know that person you see at every party, but never get the nerve to actually ask them for their name? Or that friend that you have had a crush on for years whom has no idea of how you feel? Before 2016 becomes another year of shoulda, coulda, wouldas or even worst, your crush is swept off their feet by another person; just do it. Ask them out, tell them how you feel, even try kissing them underneath the mistletoe (just make sure that it’s consensual).
Look, we are all scared of rejection. You’ll never know if she actually likes you if you don’t try. The other day I heard a beautiful love story of a couple where the guy loved this girl throughout college and she had no idea! She thought they were just really good friends; however, everyone knew he was in love with her. One day years later he finally told her and cutting to the chase-- they are getting married in less than a month. THAT COULD BE YOU!
Sitting around hoping they’ll make a move isn’t going to help you start a relationship with the person of your dreams. Only action will do that. So I challenge you, Before “shoot your shot 2016” is officially played out, ask them on a date or tell them how you feel. They may not feel the same way, but at least you’ll be able to get your feelings out there and leave the ball in their court. It’s all about taking a leap of faith and staying true to your authentic self. It may not work now, but you never know how the story will end. Put it in the atmosphere and let the world work it’s magic.
