What to do?
(Weymouth, MA, U.S.)
I'm in love with someone! I know, I'm only 14, but I really am in love. Only problem is, I don't know if he likes me. I know he's had a crush on an idiotic blonde who treats him like crap, and only makes out with him once in a while for attention. We flirt a lot, but I'm not sure if that really means he likes me. We are graduating from middle school in less than 2 months. I don't have a cell phone, facebook, or any of those things, and since we are going to different high schools, I want to know if I should risk total humiliation and tell him I love him.
I can't imagine a world without this boy, but at the same time, if he isn't interested, that could be extremely embarrassing! I'm so confused right now. The only thing I'm sure about is that I am in love with him. I need your advice more than ever, please help me!
Answer from Stella:
NO, NO, NO... do NOT tell him you love him. He will run away and never look back! What you might do instead is invite him to go somewhere with you, some place innocent and not too pushy, like out to the mall with some friends, or to a school dance or even help with homework. Just some non-threatening way to let him know you are interested.
But NOT that you love him! Trust me on this one.
Hope this helps!
