So I’m 11 (turning 12 in a couple of months) and I’m in year 6 and I have a crush on this boy. He’s a year older than me and we’re in the same class and I REALLY like him. Last year, I had absolutely NO idea he even existed. Until the end of the year, when the selected 10 students had to present a speech in front of the school. I still didn’t have a crush on him then. But as soon as we we’re split into our classes for the year, as soon as I saw him I pretty much liked him. I guess you could say that it was ‘love at second sight’. Also, the boy I have a crush on (I’ll call him Jack) got chosen as School Captain. I was elected a Prefect (the rank below Vice Captain), but nearly enough votes to be Vice. While I’m here, I might describe what he looks like, so can get a bit of an idea if how cute he is. He has beautiful green-brown eyes, with straight brown hair with a line of medium-sized circles, with a small tinge of orange. He has a few occasional freckles on his nose and he’s quite athletic. He likes to play Basketball, Soccer and Touch Football. Jack (again, not his real name) is also very kind and laughs at my stupid jokes, and also has a few dorky and quirky things about him that are just so adorable. I don’t know if he likes me back, but the chances aren’t that high, although a few times he has winked at me while pointing at me with the, you know, gun-finger-shaped thing…. you know what I’m talking about. Most of the time he hangs out with his friends during lunch and recess and never hangs around girls unless he’s in class or the girls are playing Basketball w/ him. Sometimes I go and play, and it’s really fun. But I also don’t mind being around him, as I have a brother, two teenage BOY cousins, two dads, and, like, 4 grandads. (My dad’s father dies a few years ago ? so now I only have 3). The thing is, tomorrow is the first day of Term 4 at school and I’m still really attracted to him. Can anyone give me advice on what to do? P.S. I am a pretty awkward person so there is pretty much NO chance I could go up to Jim and tell him my feelings. P.P.S. I found out the other week that my BFF and I like the same person. P.P.P.S. I congratulate you if you made it this far reading the whole thing. ??

    Hi! I’m also the same age as you and…I also have a crush. But anyways, just try talking to him! Get him to know you better!
    I hope this helps, I’m not that good at giving advice xx

    Before you get into anything serious, the key to any romance book (I’m a major book worm) is that they become best friends and slowly tell each other their feelings. Make sure he knows you interested without actually telling him your interested. Young love is a difficult thing. Lol says me I’m 12 as well. Anyway I myself am not really interested in boys but I have 5 brothers so I pick up stuff. Boys don’t like a shallow girl and hate a flirt. They also don’t like it when girls always laugh with that “popular girl” laugh. They don’t like it when you make excuses to occasionally touch their arm. They love a girl who is goofy and makes jokes. They love a girl who gets to know them truely and who is just their self. What do I know. I just picked this up from my brothers. Maybe it’ll work. Good luck! ??

    Hey so here is my advice (I hope it helps)
    1. Try to get to know him- talk to him more and play with him
    2. Boys are confusing but I think that him winking at you is a sign of him liking you so AGAIN try to get to know him but he may be to shy to get to know you so you should make the first move in talking to him
    3. Since your friend likes him as well you could AGAIN get to know him before your friend does so he is more interested in you or try to influence her to like someone else?? Idk about this one!
    Good Luck xx
