#719: “Conceal, don’t feel” or, when it takes forever to love people.

Hi Captain, I met a man via online dating about a month ago. He seems like a not-terrible person on paper. Probably even nice.

#702: “I told my best friend about my romantic feelings, and she doesn’t share them. What do I do to show her I truly care for her?”

Dear Captain Awkward: I am 13, and the girl I love is 16. I have a higher IQ than I should at this age, so believe me I am 13. Anyways, I have been talking to this girl for almost 3 years.
