Re: Aikido A Place to Find True Love?
I find this to be an interesting and touchy subject. I started Aikido as a way of building discipline and self confidence, and never considered it a place to find love.
Recently I have started to develop certain feelings for a girl at Aikido, and these feelings grow stronger with time.
At first I enjoyed training with her and I would be in a good mood after training. Now I feel trapped as I see the need to tell her how I feel and get it of my chest, but at the same time I don't want to make her feel uncomfortable.
I am not sure of proper Aikido etiquette regarding the matter and I am afraid of telling anyone at the Dojo about my problem. I feel a bit guilty and ashamed that I let myself get in this situation, but the truth is it just happened.
I need to find a solution soon as I can't sleep some nights and I have lost all my motivation and drive as a result of the situation.
