sometimes i feel like i've more than made up for my lack of confidence when i was small and might have gone overboard. a prime example would be how i could go straight to a guy and tell him that i like him. many girls would have to muster up a lot of courage to do that, while i, on the other hand, need to exercise a lot of self control to keep from being too direct.
what's wrong with direct, you say? nothing. except that it kills the suspense (suspense is fun) and sometimes infatuation is just that, infatuation.
