The guy I fancy keeps blanking me – but why?

DEAR DEIDRE: A GUY I fancy at college keeps blanking me – and it hurts.

There’s a boy in my class who I get on with really well and have a crush on.

But I’m quite shy and sometimes I don’t know what to say to him, so I lose my nerve and ignore him.

Whenever I do this, instead of asking if I am OK, he blanks me. He will make a point of speaking to everyone else.

DEIDRE SAYS: It sounds as if he is taking it personally when you appear to ignore him, so he ignores you back.

My support packs on Shyness And Social Anxiety should be helpful.
