You've dropped your guard and put yourself out there, Scorpio, and now you're terrified. Before you bolt for cover, recognize that the lack of response doesn't necessarily signify a rejection. Don't push for a reply; hold your position and wait. People aren't used to seeing your vulnerable side, so give them a few days to process. The ones meant to be in your life will come back with a greater appreciation of you and your bond. If not, pat yourself on the back for your bravery and move on.
