I am a 21-year-old student. I work with another 21-year-old boy in the same club. We've been texting each other since May 2017 related to work. Recently, there's been an uptick in the number of texts related to personal stuff (favourite colour, favourite movies etc.) We now chat 24/7. It is nowhere flirtatious (we just call each other 'dear' sometimes). We also meet up at the college, even if we have no club-related work. We then talk about a lot of things that are far removed from work. When we talk, we are not distracted by what may happen around us, our gazes are fixed on one another and we smile a lot.
What puzzles me is that he's actually very shy, especially with girls, but he's been dedicating time for me despite his busy schedule. This has led me to have some feelings for him lately, but I don't know if he, too, does. I am a girl who can't hide her feelings for more than a while. I usually confess or go to the point of confession. We will be working together for the next few months. There is a chance that my tongue will betray me someday. I would want to know from him how he feels about me without making it awkward. I don't know how to do it. I am sure I don't have an ephemeral feeling, it's backed by the effort we take to know each other knowing that we have only a few months left in college.
P.S - During one of our conversations, he mentioned that he did not believe in Valentine's week.
