So there’s this guy, he’s really special to me. he’s nobody like I’ve met and I really like him but we’re both so stubborn when it comes to texting first and it’s been a week or so since we texted I want to txt him him idk how to. Do I say hey what’s up out of nowhere? Idk if he even likes me tbh :/

Im not really much of a first texter too lol, but if he is as special as you make him seen to you, it shouldn't be an issue having a conversation over text nd if you really wanna know how he feels about you, you can always ask him and if you think your risking something you just gotta remember that somethings are worth risking
