Hey Terra!

Terra's Past Letters


Wish I had one:
"Should I ask her out?"

Hey Terra,

There is this girl at my school. I have had a crush on her since the start of the year. Yet I am too scared to talk to her. I am afraid of rejection because that happened to me before. I know I shouldn't be, but I am. I am going to try to ask her out on Valentine's Day. That is if I have the courage. My question is, if I don't ask her out on Valentine's Day, what should I do?

Good Guy


Dear Good Guy,

I agree with you that you should ask the girl out. Every time you make a move in the direction of showing someone that you like them, you risk rejection. So what? What's the alternative? To spend your life shuttered in a "safe" place where you'll never be rejected? There's a line from a song I know that goes: "Those who don't try never look foolish." If it's your goal never to look foolish then you can set up your life that way and never take a risk. I personally I wouldn't recommend that route.

So ask her out, but not for Valentine's Day. Valentine's Day is a day for sweethearts. It doesn't feel right to be asking someone out for the first time on that day.

Good luck!

In friendship,
