Valentine's day is coming up and I still don't have the courage to tell this person that I like them. I want to be their valentine but I don't know if they'll feel the same. What should I do?

Dear The Valentine Struggle,
I think what you should do is tell them how you really feel. I think instead of being subtle you should hint at it more or just tell him. I understand this because I've had a similar experience and honestly it is very scary to tell someone you like them. It's scary because you have a fear of rejection which I think everyone has or has felt at one point in their life. But we only live once even if you get rejected. There's plenty of fish in the sea. Maybe them saying “No” is a good thing because it can lead you to someone even better for you.
If you really think that they’re interested in you then go for it. Valentine’s Day is still roughly a month away so you have time to share your feelings with them. You can try to ask them to hang out at lunch or even outside of school. If you're not comfortable being alone with them I recommend going out with a group and once you are comfortable, try going out alone with them. Again, this is just my opinion and I completely understand how nervous you must feel. Just know that when you tell them how you feel about them there's always that chance that they like you back but are also scared to tell you.
I think whatever you decide to do should be because you want to do it and not because you have been peer pressured into doing something you don't want to do. I wish you the best of luck and I hope you take something from this. And please let me know how it goes and if you need anything else please reach out to our Mayfair Windjammer Instagram..
