There comes a point in life where you must do one of the things that makes you nervous the most. You have to do it because if you don't then you will only think about doing it, which is just going to tear your nerves up. You are fearful of completing this task because you do not know what is going to happen after you have done it.

If you're reading this, you know exactly what I'm talking about. Telling your crush that you have a crush on them.

I am a Capricorn. Some of you may not be into zodiac signs, but for the people who are into them, you know that Capricorns are very executed people. Capricorns think everything through, but think it through a little too much because we begin to think worse-case-scenario.

I have tried to tell my crush that I have a crush on him, but like I said I'm a Capricorn, everyone. This is not an easy thing to do. I took an L with telling my crush because he didn't quite get my hints. In the end, I did figure out a better way to tell him so hopefully, you all will have a better shot with telling your crushes than I did.

Here are some tips on how to tell them:

1. Do not give hints.

Ladies, this is geared more to us because this is how we communicate with men. I know, I suck for breaking girl code, but it's going to help us in the end. We cannot keep giving hints to men because they do not understand them. Just tell the man that you have a crush on him. It's easy to give him hints, but he will not comprehend that. Just be straight-forward and whatever the outcome is will just be the outcome.

2.  Like Nike, just do it.

The more you contemplate on telling your crush, the more you aren't going to just do it. The most that can happen is that your crush will not have the same feelings back, which is pretty sad, but at least you had the courage to tell them. Don't ever be afraid to be courageous.

3. Face to Face.

It seems scary to tell someone that you have a crush on them to their face, but it's better than sending a risky text message and being left on "read" or not receiving a reply. I promise the worse anyone can say is that the feeling isn't mutual and you will just have to take that and move forward. Rejection is not the end of the world, it is just a reminder that something may not be for you that time.

Crushing on someone is fun. You get butterflies. You smile a lot. You love to look at them. You get this weird, gushy feeling about them, which is normal and great. If someone can make you get like this, you must really like them. You don't get butterflies just for anyone.

Try these three steps and see how it works out for you. I've had a good experience with these steps and hopefully, you will too.

I'm Still Friends With My High School Besties As A Senior In College, And I'm So Thankful For That

New friends are silver but the old ones are gold.

As you near the end of high school, it seems like everyone is telling you, "enjoy spending time with your friends now, because once you start college you'll drift apart." At the time, no one wants to believe it, but I will say there definitely is some truth in that. There were 800 people in my high school graduating class, but there's only a handful of those people who I've actually hung out with since our graduation parties. However, it's certainly not true about all friends. I'm now a senior in college, and I'm still friends with my high school best friends.

While things have definitely been different since we've been in college, our friendship hasn't changed. In high school we bonded over the French classes that we took together and our love for dance. Although we don't see each other every day in class anymore or after school at dance practice, that's only made me more appreciative of the time that we do get to spend all together. I always look forward to that time, whether it's spent going on adventures, laughing together at a coffee shop or even just sitting at home and watching a movie.

I've made a lot of amazing friends in college, but there's still something comforting about having friends who knew you as an awkward 14-year-old who you can turn to and reminisce about the past with. We may not talk to each other every day and we often go months without all three of us being together, but when we are together again we pick up right where we left off. No matter how far apart we are physically, I know they'll be there for me in an instant, whenever I need them (even if FaceTime is the best we can do).

I know I'm not the only person to stay friends with their high school best friends, but I also know that many people don't. So I'm so thankful that this friendship has continued on past our four years of high school. As we get ready to head into the next chapter of our lives in a few months, a lot is going to change all over again. I don't know if we'll ever live out our high school dream of living together in the city or even when the next time we'll all be living in the same state will be, but our friendship has made it this far and I know it won't end here.

Caitlin and Andrea, thanks for sticking by my side for the past four years. Here's to all the memories we have yet to make together.

There's Nothing Wrong With Meeting The Love Of Your Life On A Dating Site

In such a tech-savvy world, why are we so afraid to admit that we found love online?

Growing up watching rom-coms like "When Harry Met Sally" and "Notting Hill," I've always been a bit of a romantic. I can't count the number of times I've constructed in my mind a completely unrealistic meet-cute where I would find the love of my life. I mean, who doesn't want their own fairy tale romance?

But in this age of social media and dating apps, the chances of accidentally bumping into your soulmate is slim to none. Dating apps like Bumble and Tinder are becoming ever so popular, with more and more individuals meeting their significant other online. So why is it that in such a tech-savvy society, people are still afraid to admit that they found love online?

I blame romantic comedies. Even though many romantic comedies are focused on being "realistic," the chances of me meeting the LOML at a carnival when he decides to climb up the Ferris wheel to talk to me (*cough* "The Notebook" *cough*) are highly unlikely. We've become so fixated on the idea of this perfect relationship that it becomes almost inferior to meet someone through a dating app.

But it's time the stigma ended. Who cares where you met your significant other? Sure, maybe you originally swiped right on Tinder with the sole intention of hooking up, but life happens.

It shouldn't matter that you didn't meet in some crazy, over-the-top fashion.

And sure, there's nothing wrong in hoping for a romantic comedy worthy meet-cute, but you shouldn't let modern cinema dictate your relationship. There's no shame in saying that you met your boyfriend or girlfriend on a dating app. I mean, what are these apps meant for? Meeting online doesn't in any way take away from the legitimacy of one's relationship. So instead of focusing on these so-called perfect moments, let's focus on building perfect relationships because life isn't always a movie.
