I have a BF, but I also have a problem: I’m making all
the moves! I am the one who asked him to go out with me and I am the one who
always goes over to him to talk. What do I do?
We know guys love confident girls, and we’re totally not in
the ‘50s anymore, but is a li’l bit of chivalry too much to ask? I certainly
don’t think so! There’s no harm in taking the reins every once in a while, but
a relationship should be made up of equals…and that means your dude ought to
doin’ some of the work, too.
Leave not-so-subtle hints
Most guys don’t get subtlety at all, so be outright. Tell
your guy to come chat you up in the hallway before lunch or plan something fun
for after school. Leave the communication to him for a day or two and see what
he does. If all you get is radio silence in response, move on to the next step…
Tell him how you feel
I know, I know: ‘Fessing up about your emotions is never a
fun conversation, but it’s one you need to have to keep your relationship
healthy. Aim for a face-to-face chat while you two are alone. Tell him that you
know he likes you, but sometimes you
need to be shown. It would be really nice if he could plan a date every once in
awhile, or come up to you to
talk, instead of you always going up to him.
If he cares about your relationship, he should want to fix
the sitch. And let’s face it, this one has a pretty painless solution where
he’s concerned. He might be a bit nervous, but once you assure him that you
really like hanging out with him and talking to him, his bravery should be
boosted. Who knows? Maybe your quiet guy will transform into a knight in
