<p>I've thought about this for some time, and finally decided to post this here to get some new insights and some advice. </p>
<p>Ok so I've liked this guy from my school for 4 or 5 years now. We take about the same classes and are in pretty much the same afterschool clubs/activities/competitions. We talk and IM, but it's always about school work. We've taken the same science class for the past 2 years, so when there's a lab due, we both stay up really late working on the lab and asking each other questions on IM. We went to prom together, but he asked me at the last minute (the day before the last day the tickets were being sold) and that too on IM. I don't know what to make of that. He's one of those guys who are really smart and aiming to get into Ivys, and he doesn't seem to have any close friends who are girls.
I really like the guy and thought about telling him how I feel, but I don't want him to feel or act awkward around me if he doesn't feel the same way.
So, should I still tell him? and how do I find out if he feels the same way about me?</p>
<p>I've got only one year left to be in the same school as him, so I want to make it count.
