He may be immature
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Female
See, I like this friend of mine, but, I'm not sure if he likes me. One reason that I doubt it is because he is 2 years younger than me, and he may be a little more immature. I'm 13 and he's 11. We've been friends for a while now and we know pretty much everything about each other. I've had people tell me he "likes" me...And people tell me he likes me as a FRIEND only. I'm so confused.
I agree with you that he is probably a little immature at age 11. The best way to find out how he feels is to ask him or write him a note asking him. If he just wants to be friends, just wait a year or so and he may change his mind.
