I met this really cute boy at this event he and I kept smiling at eachother. I was really shy and let my friends talk to him mostly. He lives a few towns away from me. I found him on fb and he's my friend. After I mer him I could NOT stop thinking about him. I want to chat with him on fb but I dont know what to say. I want to get to know him as a friend first, before I start thinking about dating. What can I say? I really need help!!!!!!!

I miss my crush and I am going into fourth grade so i can't call him or anything. we don't live very close, his parents are divorced.I really want to see him but how do I see him if I can't ask him to meat up with me or anything? I don't want my parents to know I am crushing on him and I don't want him to know either.I can't wait until school starts to see him. remember that I am only going into fourth grade so asking him out when school starts would just be weird. I think about him so often and he is the best guy ever. I probably get the most time with him out of all of the girls that like him, which is every girl. I don't like him because other girls like him, I like him because I like him. I haven't talked to him sense like may 31. I miss him way to much. what do I do? P.S. am I obsessive?
Hey girl! It’s important not to go too overboard with this.
Calm down, and take a deep breath. Don’t worry about the other girls who like
him, but do try to have a few conversations with him everytime you see him.
Other than that, smile, and enjoy what’s left of summer!

My best friend and I need help on a situation. My BFF, Liz, has a boy issue. We're going to be sophomores. This guy, Braden, who goes to Liz's church asked her to his prom this past May (he was a senior, we were freshman, now he's graduated) as a friend. Liz went to be nice, but now he has been texting her saying he likes her as more than a friend, even though he has never paid much attention to her before. The first time (about a month and a half ago), Liz turned him down saying she thought he was cool but she didn't like him that way. He said that was ok. But yesterday morning, he texted her calling her beautiful and special and saying he wanted to go see a movie with her before he left for college. Liz doesn't want to hurt his feelings and thinks going wouldn't be bad (as long as she had some friends with her) since he's leaving for college soon, but she doesn't know. Can you help me help her?
Liz could suggest going with a group of friends to be more comfortable. But the truth of the matter is that Liz isn't too interested, he's leaving super soon for school, and there's definitely an age gap between her and this guy. It sounds like she's being super nice already, but he needs to take her word for it if she's just not interested. If she really doesn't want to hang out, he'll have to be ok with that. It's great that you're looking out for your friend. She should definitely just go with her gut.

So i used to have a major crush on my BGF, and he definitely knew. Now, I just want to be friends with him. He was clogging up my brain and it was super annoying. I know he doesn't like me like that, but how do I casually show him that I am working hard to get over him? And how do I stop thinking about him all the time? Thanks
Keep your mind busy by focusing on other things- and maybe take a bit of a break from hanging out with the BGF for a bit. A little distance will make it way easier to get over him. A hang out sesh with your besties might be what you need. He'll soon get the memo that you still want to be friends with him, but that you're not trying to be around him (as if he were still your crush) all the time. Definitely check out this GL Advice article:

I see a lot of people having boyfriends holding hands and kissing and I feel like I am missing out. I am homeschooled so I don't get to have a lot of social time with kids my age. I used to go to a public school until 4th grade and I have a huge crush on this guy and I still do and it keeps growing. I am thinking about inviting him over to my house. Do you think it would be a good idea? I have communicated to him through some of my friends that go to school with him but I am afraid he doesn't like me and won't like me. My mom and his mom are friends on Facebook and they talk about how we like each other but we haven't done anything. He only lives like 10 minutes away from me but we can't like walk or bike because we are both on a busy road that has many accidents. Do you think if I invite him over he might like me and I might have a chance to be his girlfriend. Sorry it is so long. Thank you.
Hey Volleybalcrazy, yeah you should invite him to hang out. It may be too early to tell if you'll have a chance at being his girlfriend, but at least you guys will be friends. How are you thinking of approaching him? Xoxo
