Have a talk with him
Visitor's Question from a 16-20 year old Female
Hi, i'm very confused about a certain situation i'm in at the moment. The thing is that 17 and i like a 15 year old boy. We bond very well and he makes me feel so good about myself and he does not seem much younger to me at all. He is intelligent, good-looking, understanding and considerate, and much more mature than many guys my own age, but that is beside the point. He always makes me laugh and i totally feel comfortable around him and do not usually mind the age difference of more than 2 years.
recently, i havent seen him as much because we changed places in class and he asked me a question so i passed a note to him in class and at the end of the note, i said "you meant more to me than just a class mate." I did this partly because i was convinced he liked me.. i always caught him randomly looking at me.. and partly out of a crazy whim and instinct! Ever since then, things have been different between us. The first day he got the note, he kept blushing and looking downward and then looked deep into my eyes as he passed by but did not look at me at all the rest of the day. afterwards, we didnt talk for a couple of days but then we talked casually a couple of times, but our relationship is not the same. i feel he is becoming shy around me, yet i always catch him looking at me in the hallways and during class and once we had an encounter in which we both said "hi" very shyly to each other. im not sure what to think. my friends tell me maybe he is just not ready for a relationship or perhaps is too shy to tell me he feels the same way for me. and other friends tells me that i have probably confused him with the ambiguity of my letter... he could have just taken it as something a friend would say..
i'm thoroughly confused and would really appreciate some advice! does this boy like me? what should my next move be?
He is shy. It is up to you to help him through his shyness. Speak directly to the problem... how did he feel about getting that note. Tell him you care for him even though you are older. He should come around fairly quickly once he opens up.
