He's Very Confusing!
I like this guy and he knows I like him, but I don’t know if he likes me. Most of my friends think he does like me because he plays with my hair a lot and likes to sit in my lap and hug me. But other time he tells me stuff like to "Shut up" or "don't look at me" even though I wasn't looking at him to begin with! It's confusing and I’m too nervous to ask him if he likes me myself. He is in all of my classes and I talk to him about ten times every day. But I don't know what to do. Please help me! – Violet, 12, USA
Trust me, he likes you. He sits in your lap and hugs you? That is certainly a crush. The reason why he is saying these things to you are probably just him being moody. He's starting puberty now, so his emotions are all mixed up right now. Just respect his emotions, and keep in mind that he may have something going on in his life outside of you, like his parents getting divorced, etc. But he definitely likes you! Hope this helps! – Shannon, 14, Washington, D.C.
You have a fair few options here, you can do the easiest option - ask him. Or you could try asking his friends. His friends may go off and tell him - but at least then he’d know? Or, if that’s too frightening for you, try asking him who he likes. Better yet, get one of your friends to ask him. Just give it a try! Rejection can suck but if you get the boy it’s always worth it. If not, there’s always a chance that you've been so focused on this guy that there’s someone else that has his eyes on you and you just haven't noticed yet! – Jessica, 15, AustraliaTo begin with, since you are twelve I want to say this - when guys are at that age, boys tend to be a little mean to the person they like. Don't confuse that with bullying or being abused. That's a plain no-no. I think he does like you. He flirts with you a lot. But please don't get your hopes up. There are plenty of other guys out there! You just have to find the right one. You should try to flirt back at him. Be subtle and innocent, be playful. See how he acts. Then maybe things will take off from there. Take it slow and have fun. Best of luck! – Tia, 16, Maryland
