How do I deal with these
feelings I have for someone?

#firstlove, #help, #puberty

Your head might be whirling with all these new feelings you have for someone. But what do you do!?

Here are some tips for getting to know someone better.

Don't look away! It may give him the wrong impression and he may think you're not interested. Boys are not mind readers, so when you see him in the corridor or classroom, smile and say “Hi”.

Ignore your friends if they don't think he's cute. It's good they don't like him too. But don't be put off. Good friends should support your choice no matter what.

Rather than asking someone on a date, why not invite a group of friends to go somewhere? This takes the pressure off it being a date and gives you a chance to get to know each other better while having a laugh with your friends too.

If you find they don’t feel the same way about you, don’t worry. Everyone is attracted to others for different reasons and it doesn't mean there's anything wrong with you, it just means you're not suited.

One last thing, no boy is worth losing a friend over, so if you find yourself attracted to your friend’s boyfriend, step away. NOW.

I have a crush on someone that'll probably never notices me and it really sucks cause I'm tired just sitting from afar and staring at him I just wish he knew me

I’m y8 and going on 13 next year and I know how it feels I mean me and my crush are really good friends but the thing is it’s my bestie ex and I’m having a tough time as one of my other friends is moving on Friday and on Thursday it’s my last day with her then she has fallen out with my other friend who is my crush’s ex so I have been trying to hint to him that I like him by every now and then hugging him and also it’s very likely that you like the most popular boy as most girls and I’m not trying to come across offensive by saying that but you could always try meet up with him and get a drink or something xxx

I’ve got a crush on a boy but I don’t know how to even speak to him. I’m so nervous 😥


Yeah I agree with Pottercorn Even if they guess it, say NO! I've been in a mess after telling someone my crush, it was the worst decision I've ever made!


One thing when you start developing a crush : DON'T TELL ANYONE (AND I MEAN ANY HUMAN BEING!) Because then, your parents will know. And then, if you are unlucky like me, the whole of your year group will know. Take it from the expert.


I had a best friend that liked me and it ruined our friendship
