varonikar asks: I have a stupid problem. I know a boy who loves me, but he won’t tell me so. I also love him. So what do I do to get him to tell me he loves me?
Hi Varonikar –
Hey this isn’t a stupid problem, it’s a delightful one! This is one of the most exciting times you can have in your life, when you know what you feel and what he feels, but no one’s saying what they feel. So now comes the fun and scary part — how do you find out for sure how he feels, and get him to say so?! Maybe get a friend to ask him if he likes anyone? Or try hanging around him and see how he reacts? Or you could do what I do – just jump on him and lick his nose. But it seems that dogs get away with that a lot more than people!
Or if you’re absolutely sure of how he feels, then you get to have fun with this. You can be kind of a “tease,” and see what it takes to get him to tell you what he feels. You can pay tons of attention to him, or ignore him; you can go up and kiss him (but use your lips, not a big slurp as I would) or you can hang around other boys till he speaks up. It’s all your choice.
But I’ll ask again – are you absolutely sure he loves you? Or maybe even more to the point, are you sure he knows he loves you?! If not, maybe you need to help him figure it out. All those teases I mentioned above could help, but it also could be that what he needs is for you to be really kind and considerate and helpful to him, and see what he does.
Again, anything you do is probably okay. So have fun. Once you and he tell each other what you feel, you’ll never have this goofy, giddy, excitement again. So enjoy it while it lasts.
And please, when you do kiss him, throw in one little one for me!
