Hi. I'm Russian and I felt in love with Columbian girl and this drives me crazy. I live in USA not too long (just few years) and I came here in rather adult age (I'm 27 now). Let me tell you this story, maybe you can help me with any advice. About a year ago she came to work in our company. It happened that her desk is next to me. At first look I didn't feel anything to her but in several months I realized that I think about her more and more. That I notised her looking at me too and I started flirting with her. In some time I felt like she liked me too. I started thinking about it and understood I love her. But I knew she had a boyfriend so I felt like I was in a hell. I was trying not to think of her trying to convice myself it's just aometjing like light flirt and nothing else. About half a year ago I heard her saying to someone she broke up with her boyfriend and I was like happiest man on Earth. I guess she knew about it.
Unfortunatelly I'm very shy in such kind of things and it took me a long time to ask her out. She agreed but we didn't schedule exact date. Anyway, I was so happy! But once I came home and spoke to a friend of mine, he told me that I shouldn't forget that we are from different countries, we have different mentality, different culture. I was thinking of it too much I guess. And I guess she got offended that it took me too much time to realize that I shouldn't care about such things as difference in culture, language and all these things and let it go as is. Since than I was trying to ask her out hundrend of times. Firstly she says yes but than 1-2 days before the date she finds the reason why she cannot go. It looks like she wants to play with me or something like that. I just don't know waht to do. And the problem is that I see her every day and for me it's like slightly cutting my heart into pieces. It drives me crazy and I have no way out but quit this job. But I still love her and every night I see her in my dreams! Maybe some columbian girls can help me to understand the situation and what should I do before I lost my mind completely.
Thanks for reading this.
P.S. I'm sorry for my English, I know it's far from perfection
