My crush is still hung up on his ex
This guy and I were really close last year, and I kinda fell for him. I still really like him, and just as I was about to tell him, he got a girlfriend. They're broken up now, but I think he's still hung up on her. I really, really like this boy. What do I do?
His Answer: “Give him some space and time to be single before you try to get him into another relationship”, says Christian, 14.
Decoded: Since he just broke up with his girlfriend, he needs some time to get over her and recover before he jumps right back into another relationship. It will be best because you wouldn’t want to be with him knowing that he still has feelings for his ex.
Your Move: Stay friends with him and give some time to build your friendship. Tell him how you feel about him and see if he feels the same way. Even though he may, give it some time before you officially start dating to make sure he is not still hung up on his past relationship.
