Here’s the problem: I never think guys are into me, so when I meet someone new it’s great because I’m completely myself, i.e. fun, relaxed, and normal. The second I realize they like me, I get so nervous that I become completely devoid of personality. I’m incredibly self-conscious. Normal human movements such as sitting, standing and walking become these awkward movements as if I’m doing them for the first time.Dude, we are the same way! We practically turn into C3PO once we find out that a guy is into us. "Error. Error. Does not compute." We walk and talk all stiff, like we are Johnny #5 on a first date. Totally!
Then, over the coming days, I see them slowly lose interest in me because I’m not the person I was in the beginning when we first met. I literally feel like that scene in Amelie when Audrey Tautou's character melts into a puddle of water as the guy she’s in love with walks out of the café because she’s too shy to reveal her identity.
