"Dear Carol, what if I don't like him like that?"
I was friends with this boy last year but we weren’t really close, and now we go to different high schools. We’ve been Facebook chatting, and I think he might like me. He always texts me first, and his tone is different from before. Problem is, I don’t like him as more than a friend.
-I Don't Like Him Back
Dear I Don’t Like Him Back,
No need to say, “I don’t like you back” to a guy who has not directly asked you out. Instead, just don’t answer his texts as quickly as you used to or with as many words. He’ll get the message. With luck, he may soon crush on someone in his school.
We want to hear from you! Go here to submit questions to Carol about every sticky sitch life throws at you.
