Apprehension.
What's going to happen?
Will it sound right?
Anxiety.
What's he gonna say?
Oh god, I'll sound so silly!
Doubts.
Jeez, it won't work out.
No one thinks online relationships are real...
Fear.
Please, let him see how I feel...
I hate being rejected.
Tension.
Okay...I am going to do it.
Got to type it out right...
Hesitation.
All right, it's all done.
Christ, why won't I let myself send the IM?!
Waiting.
Argh, what's he thinking?
Dammit, please say something!
Shock.
Oh my god...does that say...
No...I must be nuts...
Relief.
Oh, thank GOD! Thank you!
The feeling is mutual!
Happiness.
Great, now I can go to bed.
Thank you for liking me too.
