Adult advice for a 16 year old boy, please? (This is a crush question but a mature one, so please try to be understanding.)
When I was younger I went through a phase in which whenever I met a girl whom I thought was pretty I would go wacko on her, bug her every day and be very, VERY suckup-y and ingenuine. I'm sure most of you recognize that phase, right? I got over that phase two years ago at 14 but now I always have a fear that I'll get that way again. (I'm not saying I'm still like that, I'm just saying I have a great fear of doing it again.) I can't tell if my fear of getting weird again is irrational, or if I'm right and I'm actually only a few steps away from getting like that again. Right now there's this girl that I can't get my mind off of so I'm terrified that I'll get weird on her too! I'm not going to be immature about this and say "I'm going to ask her out!", but I'll rather try to handle this as maturely as a 16 year old can do. I haven't gone crazy yet, but IF I were to start to get wacko on her, how can I avoid it?
