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.

It's Time To Start Dating And Stop 'Talking'

The younger generation is over dating and talking only and here's why it should stop.

Today's society is scared of dating. They have come to a custom of talking for months. They will do everything a couple will do, but they're just talking. They hate labels and they hate commitment. Couples will literally be talking for an entire year, but will never use the term dating.

Many couples will talk instead of talking due to commitment. This might come from a negative experience of a past relationship. Many people have been cheated on and this effects the way they look at dating. Some have been through abusive relationships which then leads to being afraid of relationships. They let one drastic situation take on their opinions on dating.

People do not want to settle down. Some people don't want to be with just one person. They would like to be with several and that's not OK. Asking for someone to be faithful should not be that hard. The constant voice in the back of your head wondering if someone is cheating because you've already been cheated on once is not OK either. Being cheated on and not being able to settle for one person are both issues as to why dating is no longer a thing.

Getting out of an abusive relationship is pretty tough whether it was emotional, sexual, or abusive. They're all pretty hard and it will be hard to settle down and trust someone else. This is another reason why people will talk for a while before they date. They often want to get to know the person more, but at what point are you going to know each other too well?

Dating is scary no doubt. I personally was scared of dating again after an awful relationship, but I am so glad I got back into it. I talked to my now partner for a little over a month before we made things official. I got to know him, but here we are months later and I am still getting to know him. So stop the months upon months of talking and start dating!

To The Boy I’ve Been Dating Since I Was 15, I Always Knew You Were My Forever

Thank you for showing me love when I thought I didn't deserve any.

Hey you,

People assumed our "fling" would only last a few short months. It's what everyone assumes when your first love happens during your sophomore year of high school. Yet here we stand, three and a half years later, more together than we've ever been. Although we've had our ups and downs, we still managed to keep our relationship going and to remember why we're together in the first place.

Many say loving isn't easy, but you make it a walk in the park.

You respect me in more ways than one, and you make me feel beautiful, inside and out. For a long time, I never noticed the beauty and strength I have within myself. I didn't see what others would point out to me, and at times I still find it hard to acknowledge my worth. However, you came into my life at a time when I felt I had no one, and you helped me to see all I have to offer. You helped me to open my mind to the thought of loving myself for who I am, and although the road is long and I'm not completely there, you've made me see how worthy of love I truly am.

Having you as my best friend, along with being my boyfriend, is the most rewarding feeling in the world.

I think the reason we rarely fight or stay angry with each other is that we truly are best friends. We could spend all of our time in deep conversation about any topic in the world and still feel engaged and ready to hear more from one another. Every single day I learn something new about you and vice versa. We can be ourselves in each other's presence and have fun doing absolutely nothing exciting. I am easily annoyed by a lot of things, but you are not one of them. Being with you for hours, even if we just watch TV the entire time, never gets repetitive or boring.

You treated me with the respect I deserved before I even realized I was worthy of it.

In many ways, I don't respect myself. Whether it be body image or letting "friends" walk all over me, I let many thoughts and people control my life. You, however, were the saving grace I needed. You've shown me how I deserve to be treated and how I should think of myself. Often I wonder how I got so lucky to end up with someone who loves me unconditionally and who values everything I have to offer. I say all the time that I don't deserve your heart, your kindness, your love, but you always remind me that I do. And I'm starting to realize that you're right; I deserve every bit of love, kindness, and respect that you have to offer. I can only hope that I award you with the same love and selflessness you give me every single day.

Three and a half years with someone may seem extremely long, but I feel as though we've been together a lifetime. It's hard to remember a time when you weren't right there beside me, and I would never want to imagine a future without you in it. There are so many more laughs, adventures, and memories to be made with you, and I only hope that I can be at least half of the person you are.

Thank you for pulling me out of the darkness. Today, tomorrow, and always.
