No… Just… No

One day, this girl who I never knew before texted me and she sent me a picture of her face. I thought to myself, “Wow, she is really hot.” I didn’t quite realize what I meant until a couple of weeks later. We began to text and stuff, but I just thought of her as a friend, because I recently asked out this boy who said no. After a couple of weeks, she sent me more photos of her face and I finally realized that I had feelings for her.

So, knowing that I couldn’t keep a secret this big, I told my friends. Well, the first person I told didn’t really mind, but when I told my other friend she turned and said she was going to tell somebody I knew. Luckily she didn’t, but I still haven’t told my family yet.
