Admiring From Afar
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Male
I saw this girl at Leadership Academy and i really liked her but i never really got a chance to talk to her. She lives kinda far from me but my school will be having a competition with her school soon and i know i will see her again. I want to get to know her but she lives kinda far. What do i do? Should i ask to be friends?
Asking to be friends is sort of like asking to date. It's an open, empty question. How do you answer that? Even if you say yes, what does it mean?
Instead, get to BE friends. Friends are people that develop together, and have fun together. So do fun things together. Write her. Call her. If you're going to do something, ask if you can trade email addresses so you can keep in touch. That's a reasonable thing to ask, and then you can build your friendship from there!
