dear crush,






Dear Crush,

If you think I don't know your name. If I don't say hello or goodbye. If my eyes dart to the floor every time you look in my direction. If I scowl or pretend to ignore you. If I act like I'm much too good. If you wonder why I'm friendly and charming with everyone but you...it's because I like you. It's because my whole body gets warm when I see you. It's because I'm actually shy. It's because you've missed the countless sidelong glances I've thrown in your direction. And because I am completely terrified that if our eyes were to ever meet, it would all be over--that in that instant I would unwittingly confess to the thousands of little lies that kept you from knowing just how hard I might (and maybe want) to fall for you. 

signed,
the girl you think has a crush on your friend.

I used to do that too! And then I fell for my best friend, and everything was so much easier.

It doesn't meant that that time wasn't fun though.

Oh, and thanks for your really nice compliment on my photos... I really, really appreciate it! Thanks for being my blog friend.

i could so relate to this! just the other day i was going to buy some milkshake from the university shop (breakfast) but saw he was reading the papers outside from a distance & just turned around and walked straight in the opposite direction! it;s crazy, i don't even know that much about him, hope this will pass! :)

i just found your blog through naomi - and this being the first entry i read makes me smile. a letter every woman has written (in her mind at least) at some point in her life.

i am in the midst of revising my letter currently.

glad to see that you are doing so well.

I've been following Natalie Hill's blog for a while now. I think I've now developed a crush on your blog.
