Dear Carol

"Dear Carol, I like this guy—but I don't know what to do next"

Dear Carol,

I started talking to a guy who is in a few of my classes this year and I realized I kinda like him. I told my friends, and they told him at our school dance. We haven't talked in a while, but we catch each other's eye sometimes and I think his friends talk about me. I don't know what to do.

- Crushing

Dear Crushing,

You can do nothing and just keep enjoying the intrigue. Or you can take a small risk and try to talk to him directly. Pick a subject like schoolwork or weekend plans and meet his eyes with a smile. If you both want to get to know each other better, the path is in front of you. But there's no pressure, and sometimes it's sensible and just fine to take things one step at a time.
