Out of depth and ill at ease
Visitor's Question from a 16-20 year old Female
I just started liking this guy in my drama class. He is a sophmore and I am a senior. I have never really liked someone younger then me before, so I don't know what to do. He is really smart and mature for being 16 (He is in all honors classes), so it's easy to forget about his age when I'm around him. We don't talk a lot though. We talked a few times on AIM recently, he always IM's me first. If I see him in the halls and he sees me, he says hi. I'm trying to flirt with him, but it's not going too well. Like the other day in class I gave him a dime and a penny that I found. I don't think he thought much of it, since he Imed me that night, but I don't know. We just talk about random things and he never answers my questions. I don't want him to think I'm a stalker though, like in the halls between classes sometimes I try to catch up to him. He looks at me sometimes, but I don't know if he likes me or just thinks I'm weird. Anyway any advice that you have would be quite helpful. I would really like to be friends with him.
It won't be long until you'll be out of high school and he will be left behind. So you have a few months of school left and then summer.
If you want to make progress with him, you will need to be more aggressive. Even though he may seem more mature than most 16 year olds, he still needs clear actions from you.
Let him know that you like him and ask him to hang out or ask him out for a movie. If you hang back this romance is going no where. Life is short, and you only get one shot at it so grab it while you can.
Good luck! George
p.s. you are not out of your depth and put the ill at ease behind you.
