Dear Dr. Love, This problem may seem small, but to me it is gigantic.I am a 15 year old male and I like this girl in my school a lot. We flirt all the time, and I am sure that she likes me. She exchanges looks back and forth with me and I can tell she tries to think of things to say to me just so that we can talk.Thing is, I keep telling myself that I’m not sure if she likes me. I don’t know why, but I always stop myself from looking stupid by asking her for a number or showing her I like her too much.But as I sit at home now, I definetly know that she likes me. I’m not sure why it is, but I cannot ask any girls out, including this one. Whenever I do get a girlfriend it is because I have been forced to ask her out or a friend hooks us up. And those relationships don’t last long because I always find something wrong with the girl.I could tell you a couple reasons that may have caused this although I don’t feel like they effected me. The one that it might be is when I was young, I grew up with my mother and father fighting a lot and I found myself caught into these fights. My father finally left in the end for a much younger prettier woman, and I didn’t see him for a while.I didn’t really feel anything from all this, I don’t think.Anyway, I now have two families, 1 )Me and my mom, 2.) Me, my father, the woman, and my step brother. I had to also go through more fights between these two and they were even worse. Me and my step brother grew closer and the two broke up.Now, I have a new sister and my dad is married once again. I was wondering if that would have any effect or anything. I don’t know why, but even since elementary school I have liked girls back when they liked me and I was always too scared to ask them out.Please, help me out, please help me to find strength to ask these girls. You would seriously change my life if you could help.So could you please tell me what my problem is? thanx
