does the new boy like me?
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Female
There's this new boy at school, from Nigeria. Today, we had a class together, but the teacher didnt give him any work today, and he gradually rolled his chair across from the other side of the class, to sit beside me, and he kept watching what I was doing. He was literally like a foot away from me.
Yeah, so he kept watching wha I was doing, and then he wrote on a spare piece of paper ' nice trainers', ' nice glasses', and 'nice hairstyle'. I smiled, but I was a bit weirded out, because obviously thats not common behaviour.....
And then later, after the end of that subject, it was home time, and i was waiting for friends to come out of other classes, and he was standing with one of the teachers, and he kept looking at me, then the teacher waled one way, and so did the new boy, and he looked at me, looked away, then looked at me again as he walked away, and he did this a few more times before my friends finally appeared.
My Mum says he does fancie me, and I just wanted your advice, and I wandered if you could tell me if this was common behaviour in nigerians, or, in fact - anybody??
It seems that he does like you.
If you like him, or think you might, be very friendly to him. He is lonely right now anyways being new and all.
So smile at him, say hello and his name, look him in the eyes. Mostly smiling will do the trick. And do this starting tomorrow. He needs quick feedback from you showing that you like him too or he will feel hurt and look for someone else.
Good luck! George
