Signs and Symptoms of an Alcoholic: I Really Like a Guy but I Daren Tell Him…what Do You Think?

Question by JennyR: i really like a guy but i daren tell him…what do you think?
were good friends but lately ive been feeling really attracted to him..but all we seem to do is get smashed together..we have shared a bed together a couple of times but jst end up passing out wrecked..we are both party animals! a few weeks ago we had a kiss and cuddle and just the other nite the same happened..but no sex i guess we were both so wasted. but now i think maybe he just isnt attracted to me..but maybe he is cos he kissed me??i feel really confused. i care about him a lot and i want something to happen between us but im too shy to say anything. he is always joking around and sometimes i just want him to be serious so maybe we could talk. do you think he has any feelings for me or is he just stringing me along??
