“my mom, whenever i tell her something, instead of her understanding and getting what I’m trying to say, she finds a way to make it my fault or will later use it to embarrass me.”
We're already "normal" friends. She seems shy around me, and i feel shy around her. We do talk a lot. She started to ask me "The questions." Like;How old am I,how many pets do i have, my favorite color, etc. things like that. Does this mean she likes me too? Is she trying to figure me out? We sit next to each other at lunch a lot. So maybe i should ask her out?
