I like this guy ...
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Female
There is a guy I like and I want to tell him how I really feel about him. But he's 18 and i'm only 15. I've told him that I like him but i've never told him how much. Ok well how do I get him to like me back? And should I tell him how I really feel about him or just keep it to myself? Please help me!!
An 18-15 age gap really isn't that big at all. So that's not the big issue here. The issue is you just leaping at him and saying "I really like you!!" :) The key to all great relationships is a great FRIENDSHIP. So build up your friendship with this guy, show him that you're responsible, mature, someone he can be comfortable with and really enjoy talking with. The reason that "age gaps" SEEM to matter sometimes is that one person is really mature and the other is childish. But that can happen even if the two people are the exact same age. What matters is if the two people are *well matched* for each other - no matter what the physical age is. So spend your time being friends with him and showing him that you are a good match for him.
You can never, ever "get someone to like you". To even think about tricking someone to like you is a bad mindset. What you can do is show YOU CAN BE A GREAT FRIEND. If you do that, then he will appreciate the friendship, and appreciate you.
